I've been running a car tire for 3 seasons and I have zero complaints with it. I use a 195/55/15 with the RideOn tire balancer/sealer. As Eisblade said, it is a slightly different ride but it's nothing that you cant get used to within a few miles. I was riding my like my normal self within a few miles. My buddy's never knew I had a car tire on the bike until I told them and they actually saw it. As far as the insurance part of it goes, I haven't had to deal with that yet so I cant speak about it. I will say though, most of the nay sayers that despise the mention of a car tire and motorcycle's in the same conversation have NEVER actually tried it. It took me a couple years to actually give it a try because I was like those nay sayers. Well, it came time for another new tire so I figured i'd give it a try. I'm glad I did.
What's the deal with the 15" ? Isn't your rear rim a 16" ?
