I highly doubt you'd find car tires in that size but people have been known to fit car rims on these. From what I've heard car tires make the steering super nervous at high speeds and turns the whole thing into a groove seeker, at the same time eliminating any and all capability to traverse off road. Yes it can be done, but it's a different question whether you should.

Which are much more expensive these days than quad street tires being the rarity of the two so money saving wouldn't be the reason to do it

A steering damper dampens steering oscillations. If it starts to leak, it may become a steering dampener. There's no such thing as a dampner.

it's good for motorcycles but the roads are crap, I'm not a fan of the politics, etc

a big part of why I mostly ride supermotos is that having a foot of travel helps a lot

My FZ07 is no sport bike, but it handles real good. My old crappy XL is a mutt of parts from generally accepted poor handling bikes. But yeah, that long travel suspension eats up shitty paved roads. I'm happy, yet somewhat annoyed, that I can carry more speed through corners on my XL with cheap dual sport tires vs my FZ on quality 17's

I need a sumo...
