I have mounted a car tire on my cruiser and it rides very smooth, the only problem is the cornering is much heavier. But I ride long straight lines between two towns for my work so not much problem with that

A friend of mine recently mounted a car tire on his big metric cruiser because it was cheaper, cooler, lasted longer and, he claimed, a lot of his friends were doing it with no adverse effect. I have ridden behind him and observed the bike teetering on the edge of the square-profile tire with no contact patch at all.
The last time we rode together he carried his 7-year-old daughter on the passenger seat and commented that I was having trouble keeping up. He is an aggressive rider and I just didn't want to take a chance of hitting him. Has anybody heard of problems caused by car tires mounted on motorcycles? There doesn't seem to be any information about what is fast becoming a common practice.
