Motorcycle superstore has Shinko 180/55/18 zr  003 stealth

Everyone carries the 17"
The stealth 150/16 is harder to find .
Sometimes you don't find out they don't have them in stock for a week after you order . At least that was my experience with motorcycle super store .and a few others places.
A scientific theory summarizes a hypothesis

Mine is a 18" I'm thinking one day they will discontinue it if sales are not strong enough.I hope that does not happen,I have not found anything in an 18" that sticks like this stealth dimple slick.For the price it is an awesome tire!!

Issue with the car tire...I've ran one...traction wise its has about x3 more foot print vs same size motorcycle tire...issue there wider...and heavy....I wouldn't be scared to run one but dyna swing arm is too narrow and the smallest 17inch car tire is a 185 which is more like a 200-210 mm tire
to heavy is right. I know guys that have picked up 60 ft and ET with a smaller tire,just because of the weight advantage . part of the reason why I am scared to go bigger than my 150mm
You are also lowering the gearing with a smaller diameter tire. :wink:

Accurate information is expensive, rare and difficult to find!
