I am 100% sure he is used to that. Her MTR's were almost 2" bigger then his boggers.....I know this, every time I am in his barn, I place them side-by-side

So when they send you some free 39's (which are actually 37's), you can sell me your 37's (which are actually 35's).

I could be wrong, but I think that is what Stan had going on with his TSL radials.

My bias 33x12.50x15 Swampers measured a little taller than a BFG 35". My 37" Claws run 36.5" on a 15x8 rim. I don't understand why tire companies can't just make tires the size they are supposed to be on a consistent basis.

not sure, but i thought i read on a tire website once that the "true" tire size is usually calculated/measured based on the tire being mounted on their tested rim size, inflated to max sidewall pressure and unloaded.

so according to that, different size rims, different tire pressures, and the fact that most people measure them on the vehicle which can vary greatly in weight, it's almost impossible to have the same measurement every time.

FWIW......i took my 33's off of my jeep after having measured them on the jeep with street pressure, and then layed them on the ground and inflated them to 55psi, and they were almost 1" taller that way.

I understand that there are numerous variables for each measurement. I just think that all the tire companies should use the same specs so you are not surprised by one brand's difference over another.

not trying to be a dick, but when i look at tires, i actually compare all the measurements. i think tire rack and a couple other sites actually give dimensions on height, width etc... and i've found some large variances between brands. so if i occasionally am looking for something that needs to be a specific size, i actually look at the measurement specs rather than the "generic" 33x12.5x15 measurement.

but realistically, isn't almost everything you buy nowadays different from brand to brand. even with clothes and other things, the measurement never seem to be the same between brands.

I compare them too. But I shouldn't have to. I should get a tire that measures what it is supposed to.

My bias 35" Micky T's Baja Claws measured 33.5" on a 10 inch rim.

My current 35" MTR's only measured 34" on a 10" rim. Now they are on 8" rims and measure a nice healthy 35" (maybe more). I'd say go with a 8" rim and see what it measures if that's what matters to you.

keep in mind the 39.5" iroks measure exactly 39.5" tall, there is no in between.

if you want a 37" tire from interco get the 38 or 38.5 sx

http://www.misfitoffroad.com/phpbb/v...t=5112&start=0

37x14x17 next to a 39.5x13.5x17

Most people run wheels that are much too wide for a given tire, say a 15x10 on a 12.50 tire, most 12.5" wide tires are recommended for 8" wide wheels.

Also, Revs per mile is a good indicator of overall height, the taller the tire the fewer Revs per mile.

I just traded my new 37-14.50-15 BP irocks for a set of new 36-13.50-15 BP irocks. So I can run the 36" tire class. the 37's are almost 36's but the 36"s are 37.5. Now that's just right.

at less than 10 psi both tires are between 36.25 and 36.75
