I am shopping around for a new rear tire and wondered if anyone has gone Darkside on a stock rear 18" fender and if so what size tire did you buy? Have been doing a lot of reading and i am thinking about converting since my tire is getting shot.
Steel frame bike don't work well with car tires cause of the stiffness of the frame. Your frame does not flex so you would be asking for trouble in curves and cloverleafs.

Yeah, about the only way to do it on a KP is to put a Vision or XC wheel on it with whatever changes that means. But as Andre said; a KP really isn't heavy enough to bother with it.
I had one on a Harley Softail once and while I liked it in the straights the twisties were far better with the motorcycle tire (MT). Could be I just had the wrong car tire (CT) on it and I've seen CT's on light Honda cruisers who seemed to like it just fine.
If you could find one to fit your existing 18" wheel and fit in without rubbing; it might be worth a try. Something I discovered before mounting my last CT on my XC is the tire would not fit up into the wheel well before being mounted on the wheel and aired up. I guess it made the tire taller and slimmer. Just something to keep in mind if you do try to find a tire that'll fit.

Hey guys, new to the forum. Came across a 2007 Kingpin Tour with 65k km (40k miles) on it. I am in Canada and the guy selling agreed to $3500 CAD. Is that a good price for this bike with that milage on it? Some pics below.
