Ara, what do you mean 'tailgaters'? You're susposed to just outrun those fools or carry a supply of carpet tacks.

When I was young, much younger and foolish, I use to carry quarter size roller bearings... no explaination needed!!!

Nice to hear from you Claude. Hope that some of the inquiries I send you turn into sales and much sweat for you!!!

Be well... always.

I think you ending a question with an exclamation point instead of a question mark has some significance right?
Does a reprobate mean a probate all over again!
See you Saturday?

Why? I have never understood "The Darkside" guys. Seems awfully foolish to run a square profile wheel on a machine that leans

Nope. Talked to My Insurance agent and she said if it wasnt meant for a motorcycle I wouldnt be covered in an accident.

car tires on solo GS

I have ridden my '98 GS solo with the car wheels a few times. With the rear car wheel and the stock front wheel it's a little squirrelly and squirmy...with both car wheels it's downright scary!

I cannot say either that this tire/wheel can replace the two wheel drive. I just don't know. I would like to think so specially after today. I am going to try a snow tire next... David???
This has been the BEST add on to the rig... And by the way, we can talk about the suspension on the GS some time also if you need to... Real important... we went around and around quite a bit in the beginning...
Be well...

In the winter with Karoo's I was only getting about 2000mi out of a tire not to mention there is not a whole lot of rubber on the ground, lots of spinning in the snow and slush. I started looking for a car wheel conversion. I needed to have a bolt up wheel that maintained the ABS which is an absolute lifesaver in the snow. There was really only one option that I found - STROKER (who is an inmate) He was great to deal with. Prompt call returns and very knowledgeable. After PM'ing and talking this came in the mail







WOW!!!!! Damn, I had seen pictures but this thing is gorgeous......It came with ABS ring, brake rotor, tire, and the necessary longer bolts to fit the adapter. The rim is a standard off the shelf 15" centerline rim. The adapter holds the ring and rotor. I used the BMW cone washers from my stock wheel.

Here it is bolted up.






The wheel is great. The overall diameter between the stock tire and the 165/80 tire is negligible. So the accuracy of the speedometer is not changed. Now the good part, it handles like a dream. I thought my rig handled well before, but it got better, the extra squish from the car tire is nice and the square profile helps handling at all speeds. It is especially nice at higher speeds (85mph was what I tested it at). The extra contact patch is great for winter weather as well.

One of the best purchases for the rig yet!

Talk to Stroker , he makes the kit for rear and front.

... hello and welcome to the asylum.

Jimmy, you can also contact "Claude" on this forum. I believe he sells the Stroker wheel for Stroker and Claude might be better for shipping to Costa Mucho.

This may have been the trip that led Stroker to get into wheel building, legend has it his lightly loaded machine ate half of a Tourance in one long day in a crosswind and he set off to find a better way.DB
