1800 has a number of options, the 1500 has a couple, the 1200 has had a couple of folks try a C/T on it with poor results, namely because the rim is too narrow and not a true 15" but about 15.2".

The 1100 rim is even more difficult to find a suitable match for.

Actually all the 15" MC rimsare 15.08" +/- .015. It's the car tire thats not a true 15". It's spec's are 14.968" +/- .015". These spec's arefrom the Tire and Rim Association 2012 yearbook. They set the standards to which all rims and tires are to be designed andmanufactured to in the U.S.A. and those spec'scarry over to most of the world. The Europeans do have their own agency but they normally default to the TRA.

dude. If you mean "car tire" don`t do it. use the bridgestone spitfire 11f dual compound tire and I believe you will be happy with the handling and great mileage.by mileage I mean these tires last a long time. samk.

There isn't a car tire made that will fit an 1100. I spent three solid years looking for one.

I searched it out too as many others have too. To do it will take a wider space at the driveshaft. So unless you want to modify the swingarm, forget about it!

Sorry, not going to happen. I guess you will have to get one to fit a 1500 or 1800 and then you will have a reason to upgrade.

Avon Venom Xs work well with our bikes. Not CT but provide a great ride and handling.

1. The top speed of the Standard was 199 mph .....

2. The 1981 Gold Wings had a fuel tank that held 5.02 gallons

3. ...better shielding on instruments to reduce reflections on the windshield compared to the 1980 models.

4. The front brake used dual discs that were 232 mm in diameter with two-piston calipers
