I'd be interested in knowing, too.
Then you've nothing to offer the thread, thanks for reading. Unless something happens it'll be a while for me. I've less than a thousand on the new Metzler. I have the Harbor Frieght setup ordered but will take it to an shop if I loose the Metz before wear out. I wore the Dunlop out in 5 months, but it's winter so I'll be off the bike more at this time. I'm just doing my homework ahead of time, or hoping someone has done it for me.i wont put a car tire on my m/c
The Nomad 1600 and 1600 Classic take the same rear tire.Yeah, I've been trying to fit my 2006 Nomad it uses a 170 70 16 stockie and am currently running a 180 70 16 ME 880 and have been looking for someone who has done it or knows of a tire that will work with no luck yet.
It's not a problem running a tube in a tubeless tire. You can't go the other way, but honestly, it's been a long time since I've seen a tire that is tube-type only.Good luck finding a tire ...but your more important first problem is going to be modifying or replacing the rims for the tubeless variety.
I believe in UFO's. As I understand from a friend that runs car tire on his Valk., he has better control (going straight, I'm sure) in the rain. Less hydroplaning.The advantage is just initial cost. Car tires are cheap, MC tires are more expensive. I doubt a car tire will wear as well but it may last longer while you recouperate in the hospital. Using car tires is much like believing in UFO's.... once you are convinced, no amount of arguing will change your mind. Enjoy the ride regardless of the rubber. It remains your choice.
:biggrin:Only the female trees have thorns. But they're everywhere.

Another user posted a photo of a 205/60-16 Falken on his 1600.
