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.

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

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.
