What are you doing southpaw, trying to pick the flys**T out of the pepper?[/B]
I don't know what your going off about but it's plain silly. I didn't say anything other then that the tires i have sitting here seem to measure up without being mounted, and that i'll measure them again when mounted.
the who seems confident enough most tires are mis-sized that your challenging people to measure their tires and you'll bet on it
that they don't measure up to the specs. I'm not interested in arguing with you. btw i could really care less if they are off by a few mm. I'm not that anal retentive to make a big stink about it like some of you are. Other aspects of a tires performance are much more important to me then it being exactly the size specified.
I NEVER SAID ANYONE'S MEASURMENTS WERE INACCURATE. I don't know where the heck you get that from!? Your the one talking sh*t like "Bet if you measure the actual roll, it will be less by a good percentage --I have!" That comment was about 235/60/16's in general, not any particular brand you've measured.
I say ok let me try that and you start harping on me like i said your full of sh*t. I didn't say anything
about your measurements or conclusions. I simply took you up on YOUR bet that if I measure my tires they'll likely be off from the specs. The only reason i even bothered is the tires are sitting right here in my bedroom and my Stanley tape measure is clipped to my desk. Your allegations along with those of the original poster intrigued me so i measured the damned things like you
challenged people to do. excuuuuse me!
The only thing I would "bet" on is that tires differ--but then several others said the same thing. You seem to be hung up on the "betting" thing. I intended it only as a figure of speach, used many times, by many people. Actually, the discussion here was about tires that did not measure out to the specs indicated. Since yours may have, why the hell are you in this discussion?
Actually no, that's not what you said you would bet on. You said you'll bet that if we measure our 235/60/16 tires they'll be out of spec too. you seemed rather confident about that, confident enough that you would wager on it.
You've found tires you've measured to be out of spec. You've encouraged others to measure their tires too, but when i do and they seem to match the published specs i should just shut up and go away? I suddenly have no business posting in this thread anymore? wtf? If mis-spec'd tires are a legitimate issue is it not helpful to know what brands ARE in spec too??? I would think that would be as useful to know as well.
I don't see how the fact that my falkens seem promising somehow discredits your observations about altogether different brands of tire either? That seems to be your conclusion and that's not
what i said... I never called BS on anyone elses measurements and observations. I just took up your challenge because i was curious about my tires. Having bothered to measure them why wouldn't i comment on what i observed?
Anyway i'm waiting on a rim i ordered to arrive and when it does, and the tires mounted up and inflated, i'll take some measurements and report the results. Not because i want to call BS on anyone but because i'm interested in what the measure. Before i put it on the car i'll be able to roll it as well as lay on its side and lay a straight edge across the face of it so i can accurately measure the section width too.
