:mosh:put on a KUMHO- ECSTA-asx car tire on my 06 F-3.Ordered online at www.tirerack.com My best bud and I took off the wheel and I cut the old one off and we tried to mount the car tire. Old farts doing a young mans job don't work to well.2X Poop Alert. We got it part way on and had to hunt for a store or shop to get it finished.After 2 no's and a BS story on why it's taboo to have done and a sermon on whatever will happen at a M/C shop. Next M/C shop did it with a smile and an extra tip from me. Tomorrow I'll Dyna-Bead it, the front is a 880 DBed.
Did a lot of research and found no concrete data on anyone having any problems with car tires on M/Cs other than operator errors.

I think you will like it Carl.
You can't tell the naysayers anything, but trust me, It can help save your ass.
Where did you end up getting it done. Thunderbay cycles in Tampa has no problem doing it.
