Thanks Ken. Yes, I look in my mirror and soon as I see a little smoke I drive out of the water.

By the dimensions provided it should be a slightly larger tire than Hoosier's 94"...I have never put the tape to either one tho.

By the dimensions provided by both Goodyear, and Hoosier, the only dimension that is larger on the Goodyear is section width.... Goodyear = 12.0 Hoosier = 11.3...

Hence the description "slightly larger". Both show to be 94", but like I said earlier I have not put a tape to either myself. I was puzzled by an earlier post saying the Goodyear measured 92.375"...makes me want to run out and measure my 92.5" Hoosier lol. Matter of fact, I will measure it before loading the car this afternoon.

I taped the 92.5" Hoosier on our car before loading Saturday and it measured exactly 92.5 inches center of tire @ 20 psi. I still can't figure that measurement Larry came up with for the Goodyear tire unless it was a simple typo error.

Has anyone run these tires on a 8 inch rim. There is no room in my wheel wells for anything wider than a 8 inch rim. 1967 Plymouth GTX.
