Re: TIre gauge accuracy (or lack thereof)

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/tongue.gif[/img] isn't the PRESSURE that we are concerned with as much as the ROLLING RADIUS. We want the turns per mile to be exact for each tire. My CJ was off almost 3/4" tire to tire the first time I measured it. With Quadra-Trac drive, that's a BIG problem. Of course it was also STUCK in "lock" when I got it, so the issue was moot. When I popped the QT out of "lock" with a vacuum pump, the whole Jeep "shrugged".[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/frown.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]
