I went with the Federal Formosa 175x60R16 for my GL1500 with Voyager trike kit. I'm not too concerned about cornering with the kit on and I don't plan on taking the kit off, so... Now to find someone who will mount it for me. Actually, i don't need it just yet, but thought I'd pick it up while I had a few bux ($104 delivered from here http://ssl.delti.com/cgi-bin/rshop.pl?dsco=135&Cookie=froogle&details=Ordern&typ=R-139954&ranzahl=4&nichtweiter=1

This was the thread that sold me... http://www.goldwingfacts.com/forums/view_topic.php?id=93638&forum_id=1&highlight=rudys+car

Hopefully, I'll remember this post to update it when I get the thing mounted.

I put 21,000 miles on a Federal Formosa 175x60R16. It was down to the wear bars when it came off my bike.

I now have a 1,000 miles on a Dunlop Wintersport Run Flat Car Tire. I like the Dunlop better. It sits a little closer to the original height and the feel is closer to a regular MT. The Run Flat makes me feel a little safer.

The Federal Formosa was a quieter tire.

Larry,
Now ya tell me :) I came across 4 or 5 tires that seemed like they'd work. One was a special order form PepBoys, but the Formoza seemed to have real user experience behind it and was $70 cheaper than a couple of the US maker's alternatives. I thought about a run-flat, but decided with the outrigger I have on my bike, it wasn't quite the necessity it'd be with only 2 wheels.
Thanks,
Greg

Bill beat me to one a couple days back, just keeping things tidy.
In regards to the post, c/t's are very popular and those that run them will swear by them. Chopin runs a 195 and his is fine so there's no issues with the size/ratio as long as you keep the width within bounds.
