Sally's Car tire for her wing

I read Sally's car tire question and the replys with great interest.
There is a reason Motorcycle dealers and tire manufactures do not recommend doing this and do not want any involvement in car tires on motorcycles.
If you do and I know many people are firm believers in using a car tire on their Goldwing, please slow down in the wet so your flat bottom, large contact patch, rear car tire does not hydroplane. That is not a fun experience when you lose traction on your rear tire.
One more thing. Most of you do not put enough milege on your bike to ever wear out a car tire. Do your self a favor and replace it every five years even if it looks like new. The rubber gets hard. It will develope small cracks between the tread and the sunlight along with ozone does a number on the side walls.
