    I had a 1996 Pacific Coast and ran a car tire for 20,000 miles. It was a Radial T/A. The bike handled awesome.

    Yeah but there is this motivational speaker that says it is not safe and you shouldn't do it.

    Which is, of course, why your claims should be dismissed as horse shit, because you have NO evidence, just talking points and CYA lawyerspeak.

    Put the goal post down before you strain something.

    Therefore, the sum total of the value you provide here is-exactly-zero. Anything you post here should therefore be ignored.

    Darksiders, unite! We all need to send an email to our darkside tire manufacturers asking them to put a motorcycle BEAD on our preferred car tire. Have been advised these makers have been sending workers home because of this quarantine. You might mention for them to check MIC (Motorcycle Industry Council) data to see how much business they are missing. Riders with 15" wheels could breathe easier with a change of bead!
    Scooter riders, too!

    I'm all for that, :D.......:hide though I don't think it would be happening any time soon
    even if they did consider doing it... not enough $$$ for them to be made for the effort.

    I personally know riders whose moto tire failed in some way. I don't hear similar stories from darksiders, even online, so...there's that.

    Most car tires are designed to handle WAY more weight and mileage. Use car tires with rounded tread shoulders.

    Why do you keep posting this? Those who died because of car tires on a motorcycle, tend to post less frequently, so it is still anecdotal.

    That is just an idiotic statement... and you know it. AND!, because you call it anecdotal, that does not mean the darksiders
    success has not happened as the darksiders say it has. To anyone who rejects the idea of using a car tire on a bike, it is
    merely a matter of a lack of formalization of evidence; so they call it anecdotal evidence.

    Of those that are users and proponents of car tire use on bikes, most of us don't care what you call it, since we know that
    the success exists, (with a profound lack of failure in spite of false and idiotic claims) and we know the truth of it because
    we experience it.

    "But, but but.... it's Anecdotal!!! GAHHHH!!!" :kboom

    Pffft... whatever dude. :ken

    Those that just want to argue and state that evidence is Anecdotal should look up the definition. Then they can use some other BS response.
