Re: Measuring For Wheels Video,...

What allowance do you make for tire sidewall bulge?

Different profile tires will have more or less bulge than others given sidewall height, air pressure and vehicle weight. Either way, just using the outside bead width as your maximum available space could still lead to clearance problems without allowing for tire bulge, correct?
