Rear tire

Guys,
I have a 2016 Street glide and needing a new rear tire. Looking at converting over to a car tire, but can't find anything for a conversion chart. Can anyone help me with the size or a conversion chart?

I just went to the darkside at the beginning of the season approx 4k miles ago and I'm very pleased with it. I used a 195-55-16 general gmax tire.

I'm sure you've seen one. One of those funny looking things with the single headlight that every male going through a midlife crisis buys. 😁 Sorry...couldn't help myself.

"So What are you riding?"
"A Street Glide."
"No shit...Me Too!"

I thought “Me Too” was guys on fork mounted fairings saying...”Man I was holding onto my bars for dear life while that Asshat on that Road Glide passed us with ease & with one hand on the bars.”
“No shit..Me Too!”

it takes a little getting used to but its not bad at all. following my buddies in the corners and in fact pushing them through those corners they never knew i had the car tire on it. i never once felt like i was in danger of going down because of the tire. i had to play with the air pressure a little bit but that's just a matter of preference. it took me a couple years of contemplating whether or not to try a car tire but I'm glad i did.
