Was cruising around on the web and saw an article advocating putting car tires on the rear wheels of bikes. Seemed mostly the Gold Wing crowd was doing it, due from what I could tell cost. Seems crazy as can be to me. I ain't no mechanic but I have a basic understanding of physics. Seems a motorcycle tire is designed with a whole different set of load factors involved. Seems positively suicidal to me. I know when my rear tire starts to get flat in the middle from use, it handles... Well, like a cow on roller skates. I imagine starting with a car tire that would be as good as it gets. Not on my machine!:23: Anyone heard of such nonsense?
