What would happen if i put a truck tire on my motorcycle?

How would you find one that fits ? It would be way to big and lag your engine ! Think it would be best to just buy the tire that your bike calls for ! Your poor engine would work itself to death trying to push that big tire ! Don't even think about it !

well i've got 1800cc shaft driven... the motor can handle it ... i've got a truck tire that will fit it nicely... and hahaha i've been thinking about it for weeks... my back tire is like 10-11 inches wide and is a r16... i think it will work.......

It will handle it for a while ! Don't think you will get good traction though ! Truck and Motorcycle tires are made with different compounds !

Actually I don't think you can do that. I don't think the inner part of the wheel itself (the part with the spokes and the circle around the spokes) would be large enough to put a truck tire onto it.

If it would even fit and seal on the rim, the truck tire is rated for heavier duty (weight) therefore it is made up of a harder compound. You need a softer tire for traction and handling. You would seriously compromise the bikes handling!
