I have been interested in doing the car tire for a while now but could not find one that fit. Now I think I have found it :cool:. Now I need to knowis the rearrim truly 16" ? Any issues with running a tube with a tubeless rim?

The down side is I don't see a speed rating for the tires, and they are the old square style tube type bias. Here is a link for those interested.

you can put a tube in a tubeless rim.... as for size, apparently the 1200 15" rear is a true 15" but cannot say about the 1100 16"

I read the 1200 thread and as I understand it the issue is the 1200 15" wheel is actually 1/4" or so bigger than a 15" car rim. Anyone have a spare1100 wheel they can check to see if itislarger as well?
