I can tell you, it will indeed work, and like he says it will go forever miles. but what he isnt telling , especially with that squared off tire is that the turning will sux maximus.
I have a drag radial off of my old SRT4 on my minibike chopper and its 9" wide of BFG G-force badness....squareness, in fact, this bike will sit up w/o a kickstand. and it rides great, looks awesome, but turning is something one would definatly have to get used to, it has to roll up on the corner or edge and I couldnt see doing that on a street bike and liking it.
On a goof around minibike, its tolerable.

it's really not as bad as you would think. it's no different than riding those choppers with the fat 8-10" wide wheels/tires.

sure it is different, escpecially with the squared off tire he shows getting installed, thats the is the edge of tire.
if it would be like a fat tired chopper with the rounded edge styled tire, then no biggie, but if it looks like the squared edge tire it does make tons of difference.
your welcome to stop by and ride this chopper I have and see what I mean.
Otherwise, a regular looking "rounded" car tire wouldnt be so bad.

word of advice.. don't try and mount a car tire on a motorcycle's rim if you want to keep your fingers
