Going to the Dark Side

My '48 is going through yet another rebuild (reconfiguration) and getting longer. I finally decided to run a car tire on the rear. It has a Coker 5x16 now. Does anyone have a recommendation for new rubber?

I like Coker- looks good on yours.. I recall IN THE PAST guys used wider car tires when the wide motorcycle tires were not even available...But now? You want to be able to corner on a round tire: Chopper is clumsy as it is....why to add to that?

After experiences with anywhere between 130 and 300 tires i would not go beyond 200- great look and fair cornering. IMHO. + not as much modification to the drive train...

"Chopper is clumsy as it is....why to add to that?" You have a good point there. I'm just wanting more miles from my rubber. I might just buck up and stay with Coker.
