Re: TIre gauge accuracy (or lack thereof)

<font color=purple> Uh Dave, I know tire tolerances aren't perfect, but as one who's spent several years MEASURING tires on competition mud racers, I've yet to see two new tires on a single truck that were off by more than fractions of an inch - even Swampers, Hawgs, Mudders, etc. And I've measured as many as 121 complete sets in a single afternoon. And anyway if you had tires that mismatched, you'd move 'em around so your rears & fronts matched. But, let me assure you that pressure does matter. Try watching a competition mud racer leave with 8 pounds in one rear tire & 6 pounds in the other. A perfect recipe for "last place". </font color=purple>
