Ural motorcycle forums have given the Metzler K Block great reviews as a suitable replacement tire for Ural sidecar motorcycles. BikeBandit had a very good price.

This is a tire for sidecar use with standard motorcycle wheels. It is the only sidecar tire that I know of and has been giving me outstanding service life for it's intended use.

I have a 1961 xlch sporster; would the block K tire work on the back of the bike? Just ride it in town.
Andy on Aug 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I looked up the OEM tire speck and see that Harley Davidson shipped the 61 XLCH from the factory with 3.50 x 18 tires front and rear. I suspect that many owners installed a 4.00 x 18 tire on the rear because the 3.50 is rather small. Assuming I am correct the 4.00 x18 Metzler block K would fit, but would it be a wise choice? Probably not. The block K is a sidecar tire. It is not designed with cornering expectations and the compound is rather hard. It will wear well, but handling will likely be weird and you are risking a loss of traction. If the road is wet the risk is worse. I would recommend the Metzler block C for your sporty. Price is comparable and it is designed with a standard bike in mind.

I have a 2001 BMW R1200C and have been running Metzeler 880 for a long time and love the tire. However I am thinking about adding a sidecar for various reasons. What would you recommend for both the sidecar and the bike? I have been told the flat profile tire is best but not sure if there is on avaliable for the size of the rear R1200C rim? Also want tire that I can get high milage from.
Thanks

Block K's excellent for our American Austin!
I was looking for replacement tires for our 1933 American Austin...original size no longer made, 3.75" x 18". After investigation, these looked to be best....I ordered 5, with tubes and flaps! Excellent appearance and fit! Highly recommended!
Now with the Metzeler!
