Actual Measured Tire Height

I've seen quite a few posts about tire sizing and people asking what measures true to size, and what doesn't, and one thing that drives me insane is how tire companies can't seem to make a tire it's actual size in the SXS world especially. so I thought it might be a useful idea to start a thread where people can actually give the real world measurements of their mounted tires.

So I ask you guys, if you would, grab a tape measure, and measure the actual height of your tires, from the ground, to the top of the tread. Let us know how worn they are when you take (or took) the measurement, please be as accurate as possible, and let you know the Make, Model, full tire size, wheel size (including width if you know it), and pressure you have them at.

If you guys will do that, I'll keep updating this first post and use it as an organized data base that's easy to find in, so nobody has to dig through however many pages of posts this could turn into.

Seems like a useful & helpful idea right?

Mine:
32x10x14 Pro Armor Crawler XG's, 14 x 7 wheels, 10 psi, measured 30.75" @ 100% tread

Re: Actual Measured Tire Height

Are we measuring them under the weight of the machine, or just mounted and on the ground?

Re: Actual Measured Tire Height

I hate this also, and goes for truck tires as well! That why I chose these, 32 x 10 x 14 Rocktane XD, measure about 32 1/2" @ 10psi mounted on machine with full cage/roof when new. 1200 miles on them and about 31 1/2" now, but still plenty of tread left. Hardly any tires measure true to size, even fully inflated with no load. It is BS! Also had the 32" terrabite kevlar, which were about 30 1/2" @ 12 psi, not mounted on machine. Never did use them and sold them

Mounted under weight, although it actually makes very little difference in mine, even at 10 psi they don't compress much statically, maybe 1/4"... i got a new one to mount up, so ill check that again before install
