Sooo...it's been a few months and I was wondering if any had taken Agent Wayward up on his offer and if so, how did it work out. I have a car tire conversion on my R1200GS rig with a BFG Radial T/A as the pusher, but it tends to hydroplane a bit sooner than I'm comfy with in the rain.

That Potenza (and the Yokohama) looks like it would shed water more efficiently.

Longevity is hugely increased, it's always hard to quote figures as we are all different, but cars get 30,000 miles out of these, I've seen bikes do 15,000 to 20,000 miles. Some people suggest more. I've just been told some people get 30,000 miles on the bike!

They do not seem to be available in the US or Australia and there has been some discussion on these in the Hacks forum.

I can supply and ship these individually, the price depends upon your ZIP code.
The more you order, the cheaper they are, so if you can find someone else to order with you, it will help.

PM me for a price or more information with your ZIP/post code, or contact me through our website, www.motopodd.com

The other alternative is a wheel conversion to take car tyres, there is plenty information regarding this available in the hacks forum, should you prefer this option.

Supplier in Canada

Having found myself in the Great White North I inadvertently stumbled across this supplier of 175/55-R17 car tires:
http://www.mariontirecenter.com/tire_uhperf_mnm.html
The Tyre is listed as a MIRADA SPORT GTX:
TIRE CODE - 21836
P175/55R17
(Price is not listed)
Question: Will this tire spoon onto the rear of my R1200GSA (150/70-17), without any modification to the bike & rim?
Thoughts and opinions(!)?

175/55-17 on a 5.5" sportbike rim






It looks to me a little narrow on this rim so maybe a 4.5 - 5" rim may be a more suitable option.

Any options for a 17" front automotive tire? The current 110/70 17" is impossible to find in a square profile.

Its a 4" rim, no? I have no experience, but it seems to fit quite nicely on the triumph 3.5" wide front rim. The tire comes OEM on a vauxhall VX220 which has a 5.5" front rim. So to me, it should at least fit on the BMW rim.

Any of our Euro brothers have direct experience here?

Mustang spare?

A scan on eBay shows that a 155/70/17 is available in both Good Year and Maxxis as a "mini spare" for the Ford Mustang.
Are theses tires a viable option? They clearly state that they are for temporary use only, but given the application on a hack, I wonder how much abuse they would actually get?
Anybody have knowledge on these tires?
