    EML,EZS and others have been using car tires for over thirty years. But those are sidecar conversions, sidecars steer,not lean. Those wheels are different for the auto tire(bead,sidewall,tread)and quite different from motorcycle tires.

    You are not dumb, just uninformed...they are sidecar manufacturers.
    My '85 K100/EML runs 15in car tires all around...but as mentioned, we don't lean.

    I run a Vredestein Snow+ pusher in 165-70-15 with a conversion kit. Would dearly love to run a 17 incher on the stock rim, but don't want to be the first to try at $230 each plus shipping from the UK!

    Cool Car Wheel & Tire for Your Side Car rig

    I an running a Kumho Power Star 758 165/80 R15 87T tire on my 04 k1200 GT with a Hannigan Classic side car. It workes very well. Claud at C Stanley Motorsports in Middleburg, Pa. Makes adapters to fit a car wheel ( VW I think ) to your rear end. the adapter bolts to the drive and the wheel bolts to the adapter. It workes very well, tire still shows NO wear after three years. It gives a nice ride too. C Stanley Motorsports, http://freedomsidecars.com MADE IN THE USA!!!!
