  • Sidecar Tire

    How long should one last and where did you get yours?

    I ran across a Moped tire that is the right size but it is only rated up to 65 mph. That won't work in Texas. The only other one I found is almost $300.00. It is a 16" wheel but obviously, pretty narrow.

    What sizetire/wheel? MOCO did something correct with their sidecar wheel/tires..they used the same tire as the front on the bike...my hack has the MT 16 tire on it....so it is weight and speed rated for the bike...just replaced it last week...not from wear, but age...replaced all the tires...the front and rear were getting squared off from flat running...but plenty of tread left...just wanted new shoes on it for the day that I can TRIP again...

    The hack tire was installed back when I TRIED to get my local dealer to hang the hack and they screwed it up...so the tire had been on the wheel and sitting for a few years...like sometime in 2012...so 5 years sitting and 7K miles and it still had good tread depth...

    I still want to go darkside at least on the rear, but with my current issues, I did not want to add in another variable...I know the American Elite will work on the bike with the hack even if they square off and get less mileage...

      Mine is a 16" wheel but very narrow. It probably has about 5,000 miles on it and I'm not interested in a high speed blowout in the Texas heat. My rear tire is good and, when it comes time, I too, want to go to the dark side. Even that will be difficult on an '07 Ultra due to the lack of fender clearance.

          Check the Bushtec website - the trailer tires are 3.00x16, and they're a 6 ply run flat - around $100. Don't know if it will fit, but might be worth a look.
          Ride safe, Stoney

                What is the speed rating for this tire?

                          Jim: post the size shown on the tire. Give us the full deal--is it a metric width or something like a 3.00 x 16. The bushtec trailer tire is a Tire, 3.00X16 , 6 ply.

                          Just noticed Stoney had already given you this info --sorry for the repeat.
