To me the question is not why they don't address car tires on motorcycles, but rather why a tire manufacturer does not make a motorcycle tire with the characteristics of the car tire that add the mileage and extra load rating? They could easily design it for the motorcycle rim.

It would seem to me to be a no brainer massive profit making enterprise to design a motorcycle specific tire but add the tread and sidewall qualities people are looking for when they try the car tires. I just can see the process being that hard to do.
