Hi all
I just read this whole thread but nothing was said regarding fitment of tire in the car rim. What is everyones 2 cents regarding this? I have a sketch that shows the differences and how that can affect cornering and tire seating while turning. Is anyone concerned about this?

Its not a question of doubts. Its a concern that should be discussed eventhough i never heard of a bike tire coming of a car rim while cornering so i think its a concern of lesser importance, same as darksiders have but the other way around but always to think about if one wants to explore the bike to the maximum with these mods.

fair and valid point mate, never heard of one coming off, but incompatibility of car rims and bike tyres could be why it takes over 120psi for the tyre to seat , i stopped fitting them because i don't like how it adversely affects the handling

Sorry to bring this old thread back up but I am looking for some info. My question is regarding tyre size on 17"x7" Car RIM (Offset 38) - what is the appropriate size - 200,210,220 ? I know 5.5" is for 180 and 6.0" for 190. I have VFR800 1998-2000 Swingarm and 2005 VFR 5.5" Wheel (bought today). If I am reading correctly offset for VFR wheel is 18mm and if mine is 38 I need 20 mm spacer added to the swingarm in order to be at the same center as the VFR wheel. But it will prolly hit the swingarm so I need to move it a bit ot the left and increase spacer by the same size i moved it : e.g. I move swingarm 19,05 mm (or 0.75 inches) to the left I have to make 19,05 mm (or 0.75 inches) 2nd spacer in order to keep it centereed. This way both wheels can use the swingarm with one additional spacer for the bigger one and the big one will not hit the swingarm. Sorry for long spam but I am writing my brain-flow


P.S. Just googling around VFR wheel offset is 19mm or 18mm ?
