Narrow 17" car tire search.

Post  "A" on Tue May 28, 2013 9:07 pm

Looking for a car tire for the rear wheel of a 1978 Gold Wing GL1000.

Rear wheel is 3.5 x 17"

Rear tire size is 4.5 x 17"

Rear wheel require tube used with tire...

Could I even mount a car tire with a tube inside?

I'm currently running a General G-Max 205/50/17 on my 05 Rune, you would of thought it was made for it. No more M/C tires for me. Don't have any idea about running a tube, I don't, can never think of ever running a tube in all the years I've been riding.

Thanks for trying, but your Rune probably has a 6 x 17" rear wheel and the frame/swingarm have enough driveshaft clearance for a 205 17 tire.

I ride dual sport and dirt bikes that have tubed wheels/tires on all if not most of them, those rims are not designed to work with tubeless tires.
