That would not be a wise move car tires are not designed like motorcycle tires for cornering pressure that will also be found on the tire sidewall .

Front Tyre feathering on Silverwing 600


The OEM Dunlop, IRC,Bridgestone, or quality major brand tire should be adequate. I have always had the best life and wear out of my tires by running higher pressure (usually 35-36 pounds ). The ride is harder but it reduces cupping on the tire sides increasing usable tire life.
