    Help with TIRE issue !

    I have fallen in love with the FIRESTONE DELUX CHAMPION tire, but it does not exist in a 15inch… Grrrr !!!

    Those tires are bad, and you should feel bad for liking them.
    Dictated but not read.

    There aren't any, really. Safety Mileage MKII's are 16" or bigger.

    Shinko makes some 15" whitewalls that you may like. One of em looks kinda like the old VW tires people used to put on their choppers and bobbers a million years ago.

    a car would be best and they LOOK cool as well
    probably the best car tire to use would be a smaller one like the spare emergency tire in the trunk of a car
    good luck !!!!!

    Shinko only makes an 16 inch classic… Unfortunately !!!

    Even in the whitewall, even though this is not an option for my Cafe Racer

    Any other ideas ?

    Hi mlinder,

    Yes a Cafe Racer can have a 15 inch tire

    Building one that looks like this one, just 15 inch (instead of 16inch)
