    Can there be any other possible explanation for putting a motorcycle tire on a car?

    Wonder what it handles like.

    Might actually work well for a drift car, if it allows a large amount of traction adjustment.

    Consider the weight capacity limit on those tires, I don't think it's a good application.

    I think you're only allowed to have an opinion if you've personally tried it.

    You thought wrong. :lol2

    You don't have to have "personally tried it" to have relative experience, at least you should know what you're talking about.

    It's pretty common knowledge that moto specific tires would have lower weight limit to be considered safe to use for cars... unless that's news to you?
