Last Word in Tire/Wheel Fit Tools?

For those with nagging questions on what tire/wheel combinations work, check out this tool, Wheel Fit Test Tool:

[wheelworksinc.com]

The tool is pictured in frame #2, I spotted this on Spike TV, Trucks Show this morning and I imagine some of the more enterprising machinists on here could make a similar device.

It of course requires the "prospective" tire but gives you an opportunity to check out rims widths and offsets.

Starts at $319.

Yipppeee for you .. do you now expect us all to read the FAQ's before we post anything.

Maybe you don't mean it to be snarky, if not you need to learn how to right a bit more nicely.

Of course I could have just said Matt Search here for feedback on your writing cause I know people have criticized it before.

Jim, thanks for posting looks cool.

For $319, I'd rather rent one. Great for a shop, but a little pricey for the common man.

Jim, the FAQ here is a dissaster. Links are jumbled all over the place with little/no organization in the thread, don't worry about it. The only bad question is the question no asked. smiling smiley

I made a tool to check different tire sizes on a wheel. I got the tire deminsions from a tire website and made a cross section template to fit the wheel width. Put the weight of the car on the wheel and slide the template around the wheel.

Art, I like the price of the Jegs product better!

Acardon, that is the type of "enterprising idea" that I figured somebody would come up with.

If its not in the FAQ and a search doesn't yield it, its not worth discussing. So lets just lock the site down and don't allow any more new posts.
