I may be thinking wrong, but is there a skinny 16 inch automotive tire with conventional tread that will go on the PK rims?  Will the bead and rim hold an auto type tire?  I have a few sets or rims and would like to get some cheapish tires on them to roll the projects around.  If so, would anyone have a good guess on the P Metric size that matches up fairly well to the factory PK size?  

 

Thanks

Tim

A P215 equals 8 1/2" wide, so that should do it.  If they are true 16" rims, any auto tire should work fine.

No problem with car or truck tires. Even the wheels are same bolt pattern as a Chevy truck with six lugs. Or some old mag wheels with truck bolt pattern.

Great info, if the six lug Chevy pattern works, I am sitting on several sets of wheels, I never thought to try that.

 

Thanks again
