Thanks for this post. I've been too busy to check back. This is where I got it and it is the S.drive model. Barry

Talk to inmate Claude and inmate Stroker.
They have experience with this.

Tires that are often used overhere in Europe on stock 17" motorcycle wheels are following

NANKANG NS2 165/35R17
Continental VancoContact 185/60R17
Bridgestone Potenza 175/55R17

I have the Continental (back) and Bridegstone (front) on my rig - both on stock 17x4,5 Harley wheels. I don't now about availability in the US?

Greetings from Belgium !

17" tire from the UK

Continental do a spare tyre CTT17. Size is 155/70/17. Would this fit on the GS?

car tire on 17" rim

I believe that for less than the cost of a wheel adapter, you can send your stock motorcycle wheel to Kosman, and have an automobile tire appropriate bead grafted on. As I recall, you can either maintain the stock wheel diameter or increase the diameter by 1". For a GS rim, I would assume the stock wheel backspacing could be preserved.
