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.
