As many who read this section of ADV on a regular basis know there is quite a bit of discussion regarding car their conversions to sidecar outfits. Those of us who make these conversions do so in various ways. Some with adaptors to auto wheels and some by making or converting an auto wheel to the bike. All methods work well if done properly. There can be pros and cons related to each method even though all are goood. The advantage of a car tire on a sidecar outfit is a real is real although in some cases a set of knobbies may be preferred. Typically we do the car tire conversions on the rear of the adventure type dual sport bikes. This is unless we use a leading link which is a pratical way to add a car tire into the mix. However with the advent of Strokers system to put one on the front using the stock forks is a great thing. Stroker has done a great job with his product taking a lot of pride in his final product. Recently I heard that some were concerned about whether car tires should be put on the front of these types of outfits. The answer yes . The question IS why not? The lack or rubber on the road with most dual sport based outfits can create an understeer situation under hard cornering or in the wet which does create tire wear on that end of the bike. More rubber on the road is a plus to help this situation out. So, below are a series of pictures with adventure type outfits utilizing car tires in the front. Some of the builders are known world wide and are highly respected by their competitors, peirs and customers alike. Yes, there are times when a narrow tire would do better and times when the opposite if true (front or rear). Some carry a stock wheel with a knobbie on it for those 'special occasions'. No foul and no hassle here just wanted to try and quench the rumor that car tires are not acceptable on the front of these types of outfits.
