Duro 4:00X19 0n Airhead Front Rim ?

I just got a Duro 4:00X19 Tire for my Dnepr sidecar
.It looks like a nice rugged tire and was wondering if has anybody ever used one of these on the front of a BMW Airhead?
I have a 78 R100 ,I imagine you would have to remove the stock Brace/fender mount to make it work then fabricate a new mount for the fender......Probably not worth the hassle .

Any suggestions for a similar tires to use on the tug ....I Have just completed putting this rig together and next Spring I would like to start out fresh with appropriate sidecar rated tires on the bike.
Thanks for your help,

About your only option. Pricey, but they last a long time if your rig is set up well. I have one on my R80/7/Dnepr rig.
Helps the rig track better and less wobble too.
The ladies used to check me they just keep an eye on me.

The Duro 400 X 19 is the OEM tire for Urals. Good price, decent life, gets squirrely in the wet when half worn.

some other options that I have used are;

Duro 307, knobby, good all weather/off road, inexpensive, long wearing, my favorite
Avon triple duty, flat profile sidecar tire, good all arounder but somewhat pricey
Avon SM MK II, semi flat classic all purpose tire, excellent all arounder, longest wearing tire I have used, very expensive.
Kenda 335, ice racing knobby, good price, excellent off road/snow, a little squirmy.
Heidenau K37, moderate DS tire, good all arounder, a little squirrely in wet, expensive.

For the front of a street rig, the Avon triple duty is a great choice.
