Default Do I have a case with interco tire?

According to their website, a 37x14x15 mounted on a 11" rim should be 36.5" tall.

how come my 37x14x15 iroks measure UNDER 35"?

Did I get a bad batch, or something that slipped through quality control?

Isn't this false advertising? IF I wanted 35" tires, I would have purchased 35" tires.

I doubt that they really care that your tires dont measure what they should, but for what it is worth the 38x12.5x16.5s on my old ford mudder didnt measure much past 35"

Your krawlers are used.

Its one thing to say a tire is such and such in height, but when they give the physical dimensions of the O.D., and my tire doesn't match, that is false advertising.

Maybe that's why there only 200.00 a piece, because that's how much 35's cost.

They have like 85% tread. Doubt that made them 37" tires new :flipoff:

Don't worry, you will run a stick through the sidewall in no time and you can buy a real tire :D

I thought the sidewall issues was with radials?


And you better call all the owners of some comp buggys and tell them they're going to break their sidewalls!
They might not know that they don't have real tires!!!!!!!!! :tonka:

Sounds on par with more or less all interco tires..

Seems like intercos are around 1.5-2" short in that size range.

I think Maxxis / Krawlers are starting to run around 1" short, to seem bigger.

I believe My 38.5" SXs are only a little taller than the 37" trep's on 95Geo's rig...

If you had a case, everyone would..

BTF, put them on a rim, blow them to the recommended 25 or so PSI, and measure with a square and a drywall t-square, from front to back. You might be suprised. My SXs are about 38.2" that way, but like 36.9 top to bottom.....

You didn't learn this from Geo's post about how small they run?

I was going to tell you to order 39.5" :tonka:
