First, motorcycle and car tires have different bead diameters! In other words: A 15" tire is not always 15.000" - and in this case, they are enough different that they are not interchangeable.

Sure, you could probably get them mounted - and maybe you'll get the tires to survive, but there is a risk and the consequences can be quite severe!

Besides, there are plenty of car tires that are much more suited for what you are trying to accomplish - and you can actually get tires that have improved Rolling Resistance as a feature - something NOT a consideration on M/C tires.
