Wanting to go car tire for bike and sidecar, need help finding size.

Post  Goody5 on Thu Sep 25, 2014 2:23 pm

Hi I have a Harley Ultra with a sidecar. Both the rear bike tire and sidecar uses the same tire size. Its a Dunlap D402 or 140/90R16. What car tire would I be looking for? and who would be able to change the tires? Auto place or Motorcycle place? Thanks for any input!

check your clearance,,175/60/16,,or 175/55/16,narrowest i can find,http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSearchResults.jsp?width=175%2F&ratio=60&diameter=16   or  http://www.tirerack.com/tires/TireSearchResults.jsp?customSizeSearch=&performance=ALL&width=175%2F&ratio=55&diameter=16
I went from a 170/70/16 to a 205/60/16 ,,cleared the fender rail by 1/16"or more.I went to my local custom bike shop,more bike dealers might do it cause its a sidecar ride.Good luck

This thread is from 2014, I would hope they found the right tire by now.
