I discovered I have a new Dunlop American Elite 130/80B17 in my garage. Can I use that on my 2012 GW1800 CSC Trike which currently has a 130/70-18.

Yes ... but you'll have to make a rim for it. Also, be aware that it's a bias ply tire. There are warnings about such in the trunk, in the Owner's Manual, and printed on the sidewall of OE tires. Basically it they say to not mixing bias and radial.

Short answer, No. 17" tire won't fit on your 18" wheel. Find a Harley guy and make him a deal.

Sorry I missed the difference between 17 and 18 as I know better.
