This one is fun. 195/45/R17 on Yamaha FJR1300 stock rim. Barry
In the US but where did you get them ??? Joe
Yokohama has that size in their S.Drive
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
So you don't have to put your foot down at the stop sign?
Hack pilots never put their feet down.
ah, right, didn't notice the forum. Carry on.
I put a similarly sized tire on the stock wheel of my K1200RS. Ordered it from tirerack.com. Has been working great so far. Very cool to see that it works on other bikes too!
Is that tire on backwards? I could be wrong. Seems to me it is.
Great idea thou.....going darkside on your hack.....
Yes is is on backwards, I screwed up, It will be changed before we ship the bike.
Leave the tire in place and turn the bike around
If we turn the bike around, the sidecar will end up on the right hand side on this bike, we are adding reverse so all will be fine. The sidecar is being built for a quadrapegic person to be able to ride, it will have power steering as well as power brakes, a power ramp and full hand controls as he can move his arms but not his fingers. Shifting, turn signals and reverse will be controled with his wrists.
Will this tire fit on a stock Vstrom 1000 rim? Thanks!

Yesit will but a 205 fits well and they are cheaper and there are more choices
I sure would be interested in finding a conversion for my 92' R100GS from stock wheel to car tire conversion. Does anyone have any resources?? Thanks in advance!
Talk to inmate Claude and inmate Stroker.
They have experience with this.
So now I just need to find one for my KLR
I have a 205 50/17 on the stock rim of my 1250 Suzuki Bandit. Really tight fit, but nothing rubs.
So will a 195/45 R17 or anything else fit the back of an R1200GS? It sure would be great to use the stock rear rim and find a car tire to fit. The rear tire spec on the Yamaha looks like 180/55 zr17 and the stock rear tire on a R1200GS is a 150/70 r17. Too much difference in wheel width?
