There have been car tires put on bikes since the 60's that I am aware of. If it has not been studied by now I doubt it ever will be.

I have run a car tire across country on my wing and no problems.

Will never return to a motorcycle tire.

I guess it just comes down to personal choice and preference.

Yea, I pull a trailer also
I know that it works, and thatthe practicehas been around for a long time..., but I'm not sure why it hasn't beensanctioned by the industry? The only legit reason that I can think of is a safety issue, perhaps only under certain circumstances. My questions here on the forums was never to judge, but only to seek knowledge and information to make that personal choice!



I do appreciate opinions, but would also like the facts in this matter...

IMHO it's similar to Darksiders looking for facts on C/T failures while used on motorcycles, there aren't any, Industry is driven by $$$$$$$, if Honda and the tire companies could make more $$$$$ by switching to C/T's I think you would see the results. If it were liability I would think that the number of M/C tires failing in comparison to C/T's failures would be investigated.

I hear what you're saying, but there is a answer out there in my opinion... Everyone knows that large bikes need a better solution, and if that means using C/T's, then the industry should either embrace that, or provide the solution themselves!



It is a matter of safety either way, and consumers are now the ones footing the R&D bill...
