    As far as a bearing swap fgoes, like Vernon mentioned, all you need to know is the design of th ebearing , the width and the OD of the present bearing and the axle size. Any bearing supply house or even an auto parts shoudl be able to check it out for you.
    Actually we like to use Harley wheels as they have large axles (1" and 3/4"). They are also avaialable as so many Hrley guys swap out the stock ones for aftermarket stuff to look cool.

    That makes a lot of sense. I am concerned, however, with having three different tire sizes. I would love to have one size for at least two of the wheels. Are there any decent online sources for used wheels?
