When you still go out in fields and do donuts and fishtail after a good rain in your dd with 215 street tires lol

When your friend with a "lifted" (leveling kit) trailblazer won't follow you even though you're on 215 street tires and hrs on 255 grabbers haha

When you think you can quick-connect all the wires from your drivers-side door... anyone know where I can find a wiring schematic for a 96 XJ, specifically the power windows/locks?

When you don't understand metric tire sizes other than the stock size.

As an example: 235/75R15,
235 is the width of the tread in mm.
75 is a % based on sidewall/tread width. The sidewall height is 75% of the width.
R is for rim,
15 is of course the rim size in inches.
This becomes less accurate with larger rim sizes, but that's how it works.

I know what they mean I just can't ever look at a metric size and know how big they actually are. I don't get why they couldn't have just started measuring the same way but in centimetres/millimetres. I will say that's the best explanation I've ever gotten though.

A 265/75R15 is a 31x10.50. 254mm is 10", and every 25+mm is another inch of width.

R is actually to designate that it is a radial tire.

And why can't they just call it a 78x25x15 instead of using some ******* excuse for a mathematical formula?

Now that you know, you can get a fair idea of the size.

Like I said I already knew how to calculate them, my point is that it's stupid I should have to get out a calculator. I don't have my 25.4 multiplication table memorized. When I see 33 1250 15 I can say oh it's 33 inches. When I see 315 something I know how wide it is but not really how tall it is unless I get out a calculator. Plus metric sizes are dependent on a wheel size which makes it even more of a pain in the ***. A 315 75 15 is way different than a 315 75 20.
