I wish I had a dollar every time someone disagreed with me here when I said a tire's size can't be determined by measuring its height from the ground to the center of the hub and then doubling it. That has been a popular contention here lately to which I learned I was shouting into the wind when disagreeing with it.We once competed in CRCA against a stretched CJ with 44" Boggers on the rear axle and 37's on the front axle. The tire size limit in our class was 35's.
There was a CRCA forum where the rules and issues could be discussed. How the 44" tire guy was allowed in our class discussion was nearly identical to all of these tire size discussions so far. Pretty much bullshit since everyone had a way of measuring the tire that had exactly zero to do with its stated size on the sidewall or its actual diameter. I ended my participation in that discussion with the parting shot " Ya'll can let the fucktard air that bitch down until it has a measured height of 35" but that won't ever stop it from being a fucking 44" tire". If you don't institute a rule change that states a tire has to be measured horizontally for size, ya'll can fuck right off."
