HI FOLKS: Have '95SE sidecar rig[12+years....went thru six rear tires].
Our present Austone coming off; about to be sold. Overall lower rpm[caused much harder starts, lugging engine in 40-45 mph range...had to run in 4th gear way too much]caused con rod rap @ 73,000 miles. A '96 engine to go in next week.
NOW, need to find smaller circumference, darkside rear tire which would give me overall higher engine rpm range, so starts would be easier, engine could run in 5th gear; not lug badly in 40-45 mph range w/o downshift. You folks who ran various car tire brands can, hopefully, recommend some car tires which would work for me.
Thank You in advance.....Old Tom aka papasmurf in NH :waving:

That would be everything BUT the Austone. The other size Darksiders use- the 175/60/16. Go to tirerack.com or something and check the options out. There are MANY MANY threads of folks herre discussing which tire they like best in that size.
