Does anyone have experience mounting regular fix-flat tires on cars?

Why is Cadillac the only manufactorer that approves of them?


There is no performance w the tires after adding all that weight.

This aside, how well is the tread? I'd rather have a tire I trust and replace when necessary. That tire probably weighs 10 pounds more then a regular tire; which would increase load on the bike since centrifical force is at work. Balance would be more difficult since more mass is involved.

Really cool idea but even the car tires designed this way require replacement after getting a puncture since its the STEEL REINFORCEMENT BELTS not the rubber that is damaged and will cause a tire failure.

So for a temporary fix that's an awesome idea, but for performance and extended riding there's a reason its not a common practice.

So in other words a lot better for a cruiser than a sport bike.
