Johnny's either having a second adolescence  by listening to Justin Bieber and Rap music. Or his neighborhood has changed and he's trying to fit in.

Wonder how long they'll hold up.  On my Grumman they'd wear fairly well but then they were only turning for  the length of take off and had to go from zero to 70 mph at landing with a roll out and taxi.  When I had it in rental it was a yearly replacement when I was just the one flying it was about every 2 -3 years.

Running on just rims might be your answer!

Rush those wheels down to the donut shoppe.  Have a donut baked on the wheel.  Eat lots of donuts while waiting.  The longer you wait to ride, the harder the donut gets.  If you get stranded, you can survive by eating your tires.  The story will be front page news on the enterweb for months

CAT0020,  frankly, I personally don't give a whit what you do.
Please do whatever YOU belive to be in your best interest.
But, by you posting here asking for recommendations and/or approval puts respondents
in a position of being liable if you are injured or killed. 


No, it doesn't.

Ever been in the mountains with a worn out, squared off tire?   Not fun.  On the other hand a car tire might be okay for stylin' around town, but then, those guys don't do 30k in a life time.

This thread is about options for putting a car tire on a bike rim, not about whether it should be done.

There is also an option for putting a bicycle tire on your Brick, or perhaps a swimming inner tube, or  a wooden cart tire  -- further options welcome!  icon_cheers

I would think a car tire would merit a car rim. I dunno, are the sealing lips different from bike to car rims?

Yes, the sealing requirement is different.  The rim and bead profiles are different to handle the different force vectors working on the wheel and tire.
