    Steering Tire...

    Bias Ply or Radial on the Steering? Does it matter? I have a K Block on the hack... And a car tire on the rear...

    Sidecar Front Tires

    I've been riding rigs with Block Ks on the front since 1985. My current rig, a 1987 K100LT, has a Hannigan sidecar, after-market leading link forks, and, like yours, an automotive rear tire. In my opinion, the front forks have more effect on handling than the type of front tire.
