hey im trying to find dot legal tires for my 16 inch thunderbird spare.... i want to put two spares on the front..... any help would be appreciated. seems most manufacturers only make 15 or 17 not 16 inch tires.
i know motorcycle tires come in approx the right size but they wont last long on a bird plus im not sure if the rim design is the same... plus most motorcycle tires are rounded..... sheesh someone has to have done this... i want 4.5-6.5 fronts and so far the only thing ive seen is buying 17 inch ls spares and putting hoosier tires on them but even that is crazy expensive... and they are 7.5 inches wide which seems big to me for skinnys... oh well maybe someone will come up with something.
yeah that was my theory exactly... i own a cbr 600 and after looking at those tires i said nope.. i actually fixed my problem so i can run 15 inch rims now on my 16 sport brakes......slight grinding required lol. bought a thunderbird with the wrong rims so was gonna just put two spares on for weight savings and better et but nowone seems to make a tire. if anyone does find a tire manufacturer im still interested.
