Look at your motorcycle tires and you'll see they are designed with rounded sidewalls designed to grip the road in a turn. Car tires have no tread on the sidewalls and if you tilt them to the side there would be next to nothing as far as rubber contacting the road.

Maybe on a straight line drag bike ... But first corner in a bit of rain and I'm guessing you'd be sorry.

I sure wouldn't risk it.
