Bigger rear tire?

R.e. the rear tire and fender area:



Can you put a bigger rear tire on to better fill the fender area, so it doesn't look like it's raised quite so high?

I know you can with the Vulcan 900 Custom (which has the same type of high fender profile)...here is its similar stock look:



With the Vulcan, you can take the stock 180 up to a 200 to better fill that rear area, and without any modification. Some even take it up to 230, though that does require some modification(s). Same aesthetic option w/ the TBird? Or does the bike's build and wheel well spacing require you to keep the stock size?
