Default Wheels/Tire options for 1996 VT600

New guy here, nothing but questions I'm afraid. I've used the search but have had no success. I am just not finding the information I need and I suspect it may be because I do not know enough about motorcycles to properly form the query.

My issue is that I absolutely love the 15"/16" spoked wheel and tire combo on the 98-04 Shadow 750 ACE motorcycles. Other bikes may have this as well but I only know for certain that the 750 ACE does at this time. I am looking at purchasing a 1996 VT 600 which appears to have a similar spoked wheel in the back but a much larger diameter wheel up front. Do the wheels/forks swap at all? Can another smaller diameter spoked wheel be sourced to use a taller tire like the 750 ACE?

I would appreciate any input or direction you might be able to offer me. I'm not much on bikes yet and have only gotten my knuckle busting done with junk cars.


edit - My bad, I mistyped - I put 15"/16" where I meant 15"/17" for the 750 ACE.

NO.

Odds are that you will just be asking for a LOT of trouble if you try to do that. The handling might go to crap if you change wheel sizes.

If the look of the wheels is THAT important to you, don't get the 600 and look for an ACE instead.
