A couple of thoughts:

Generally motorcycle and scooter tires have different wheel diameters than car and truck tires. In other words, a 16" tire isn't 16.000", it is different - AND - that diameter is different between cars/trucks and motorcycle/scooters. Directionally, the motorcycle/scooter wheel is larger in diameter and that means that mounting a passenger car tire on a motorcycle wheel has a greatly increased risk of failure during mounting - very dangerous.
