larger rear tire on 07 road star

I would like to put a wider rear tire on my Road Star, but really don't want to spend the $6-8k with a rear tire/fender kit. I would like to change the wheels/pulley & rotors for appearance reasons, and was wondering if anyone has gone to a larger rear tire, using the factory size rear rim, and keeping the original fender? The bike is strictly ridden solo, so weight on the rear is not a factor. Thanks

This table might help you decide if it will fit. Maybe measure your extra space and compareit with this table. I have heard you can usually get away with one tire size.

Not sure where the speedometer pick up is I assume you will have some error. 55 and 60 series tires are softer for sport bikes and might not wear as long.
