215/60/15 Car Tire

Can I install a 215/60/15 car tire on my bike? What will be the difficulties I'm going to find?

Car tire

I have seen several of those on larger bikes like the Valkrie etc. they are hard to corner and in a corner you are upon a small contact patch on the edge of the tire, I wouldn't do it. It is very hard to get used to and on a damp road it could be more dangerous.....just my opinion from personal observation. I did however ride a valkrie with a car tire on the rear, didn't like it, but the owner had 60,000 miles on it.....
