He is looking to switching over to a car tire, he rides a 98 harley dina lo,,what size tire will fit his bike. I believe his mc tire is a 130/90/16. Does anybody have a clue?

There's a lot of variables. First he needs to find a car tire close in size to the MC tire that he has. So he'd need to find a narrow (130) car tire for a 16" rim with a sidewall profile of 90. Now there's usually a little wiggle room, but that depends on his bike, the rear fender, and the clearance on the drive belt and rear swingarm. I'd suggest finding a tire that's close in size, then get the details (measurements in inches) for the actual width of the tread then look at his fender and see if it will clear. Still a chance that something will rub.

If you find one let me know. My 1980 Yamaha XS 850 Midnight Special has the same tire.
