Ok, so the original message has been moved to the private section which is fine by me. I shall endeavor to refrain from initiating threads pertaining to car tire use outside the confines of the Darkside experience private section.
This is self imposed BTW.

However, once the subject has been broached by somebody else in the open forums then I feel it only fair to be able to comment.
Thank you
bandito2... a car tire heretic... and proud of it.

So why didn't you play the game and share this with the other car tyre fetishists in your own little section of the forum you where we naysayers can't reply.

Instead you quite deliberately IMHO start a new open topic where you know you can stir things up.  Rolling Eyes

To think about: there is SAE paper on rim types----motorcycle rims/bead are different than car rims/beads

#2 bikes lean in turns and mc tires are designed for this, cars and their tires do not lean.

Beads not being the same scares me and I lean.

I once bought a HD 45 WLA with junk yard 18" tires, front and rear=not rideable until proper motorcycle tires installed------my MZ sidecar outfit had 15" 2CV tire on rear but with special rim--worked great sidecar but solo not fun/safe to ride and against law or insurance to ride in Germany. Tried it on test rides, solo=not fun.

SilverWing handles bad enough with perfect fresh mc tires----hate to see what could happen with car tire on rear.

In spite of bike tire expense I will stick with mc tires-----24,000 scooter miles ridden in 2014. My life valuable to me.

But I see for fat Goldwing Riders//fat Girlfriend/trailer car tire sounds good and they don't lean much in turns anyway... but not overloaded/proper inflation bike tire still safer.

Think the whole thing is about longer tire life. Short tire life one of the facts of life if you ride a lot on 2 wheeler

I will move this as we speak, Meldrew.

Post was self edited and message removed because the point is now moot. Sorry if it confuses anyone.

>EDIT #2<

Apparently editing an original message also affects and changes the moved message; so the original messages is truly gone.
