Thinking aboutt changing my 2012 HD StreetGlide front tire from the stock to a 19 or 21 inch- undecided. Just looking for feedback as to if these will ruin the ride.

StreetGlide pretty much equals a land yacht.
 
Why would you want to mess with the front tire size ??.......or much of anything else, for that matter.
 
I can't see anything good coming from it.  Where do you figure on getting a wheel that will fit properly ??
You do know that you can't just change the tire size without changing the rim, right ??
 
I suggest that if you want to have a customized "street rod", then get a different bike to tinker with.

It will shift weight a bit further rearward resulting in less front end feel and vague turn in would be my guess...but most cruiser riders would likely not notice as this is a change for appearance only.
