One thing I've been recently curious about is if the load range makes any meaningful difference in the hub height. Load range E often requires a lower psi than a C to made them comfortable. Does that translate into a lower rolling radius or does the stiffer sidewall balance that out? When I eventually switch to 15" wheels with a C rated 33 and get it comfortable, will I see an increase in height?Just wait until the guy with 44" Super Swamper "slicks" messes with the data.
Speaking of nano-accuracy ... if that's what you're looking for, why not do a more controlled experiment instead of getting random data points?One thing I've been recently curious about is if the load range makes any meaningful difference in the hub height.
That's a good idea....
Measure roll out with your Load Range D tires at 5 or 10 different pressures, and have someone with Load Range C tires in a similar size do the same. You won't be able to compare numbers directly, but slope of the trend lines will show you how much the Load Range affects tire size in relation to tire pressure.
Center of hub to the ground. It's an accurate measurement of how high the tires are lifting the Jeep off the ground. Similar to how measuring the coils is more accurate than the advertised ride height; or how measuring the frame height bypass some of the unnecessary details when comparing vehicles. My 33s have never kept the Jeep 16.5" off the ground and my 4" spring lift is different than someone else's.What’s the hub height measurement?
