This is from the Rubber Manufactures Association (RMA):
The recently revised bulletin cautions against installing passenger tires on motorcycle rims. It explains that motorcycle tires and corresponding motorcycle rims are designed with a bead seat diameter and flange contour that are different than passenger car tires/rims, therefore any attempt to mount a passenger car tire on a motorcycle rim may cause inflation pressure loss or the beads to break with explosive force. The result could be serious injury or death.
“Not every tire is meant for any rim,” said Charles Cannon, RMA president and CEO. “Caution needs to be taken to ensure motorcycle tires are mounted on motorcycle rims only,” he continued.
not more of this crap!!
Do you missionaries of disaster ever get tired of your own drivel!!?? don't you realize that you are an irresponsible idiot for riding a Motorcycle at all!! your mother told you this! but you wouldn't listen and now your going to die!... and you deserve it for being so irresponsible and riding a motorcycle!
Why did your waste your and our time by posting this drivel??
what did you hope to accomplish??
to convert all darksiders??
Go to a church and do your preaching there from now on... we don't need your preachin' here.
You see, my experience of riding 40,000+ miles on two cruisers with CT's on them has shown me that for this type of MC, this tire is superior in some ways to a MC tire... smoother ride, better traction in loose material like gravel and sand on the road, better traction on wet roads and the confidence of knowing that I can take a 12000 mile trip without having to find stealerships twice
during that trip to change tires... all of this has convinced me that for this bike, for my needs, this is the tire to use... so look for converts somewhere else!!
by the way, I won't be using a CT for my new bike, it's not a heavy cruiser and I don't believe it would be suitable for it... darkside isn't for everything...
just heavy cruisers...
you see, unlike you, I'm NOT on a crusade!... I just want the best tire for the intended use of the Motorcycle I'm riding at the time... I actually base my decisions on what works...
not on drivel from folks who don't even have experience in what they are Preaching about...
now go ride your bike and leave us alone!!
