Capri is actually right, to my knowledge, but there are different motorcycle tires that change this. Normally, they shouldn't fit because tires that are designed for tubes don't have as much of a sealing bead on them, IIRC, and that changes the inner diameter of the tire's bead.

I've personally seen motorcycle tires mounted on car rims, and I've personally mounted a car tire on a motorcycle, so I know that it will work.
