I spoke with a guy who rode a Valkrye Interstate and he had a car tire on his back tire. He said cost was about the same, car tire had a longer life. The only complaint he had was it took longer to break the tire in. He also mentioned how tire manufactors were making a tire that was more round like a motorcycle tire and he was wanting to try one of those
My answer is not availible, but without a doudt I will be trying one. From what I've read on here you would have to be a fool not to. I think with todays technology that a car tire will hold up better and last longer for most riding purposes that I will be doing on the GW I first have to wear out a couple of mc tires. I'm not going to put one on while I still have a good mc tire but as soon as I need a new tire I will be trying one.
ps It has only been stated, never proven that it is stupid and unsafe I have'nt read any threads about failures of the ct on a GW.
I ordered a Dunlop Sp Winter Sport 195/55/HR16 Run Flat yesterday from Tire Rack. After talking to a Patriot Guard Rider last Monday in Spring, TX it made up my mind for me. We had 267 Riders there, and a big lump in my throat.
