Guys need some ps2 width help please!

hey guys,

someone with a 295/30/19 michelin ps2 UNINSTALLED can you please measure and tell me how wide it runs in inches?

I have some 295 ad08s and need to compare, i think the ad08 is much bigger(atleast half inch eventhough they are both 295). Please try to be exact as every mm matters.

thanks!

Are the AD08s 295/30/19 too?

If you go to tirerack and compare, it shows a section width for the PS2 of 11.9. ADO8 is 11.5

You might try the company websites as the numbers sometimes slightly vary.

i just measured my ad08s and they are closer to 12 inches.

Their inch has to be wrong,

my 285/30/19 ps2s show as 11.4 which 295 ad08s show 11.6 and trust me theres way more then .2 difference its night and day.

How wide are your wheels?

Those measurements are standarized for a 10.5 inch rim I believe.

NOTE: because the overall diameter of a steel belted radial is determined by the steel belts, there is little, if any, change to the overall diameter of the tire due to differences in rim width.

The industry rule of thumb is that for every 1/2" change in rim width, the tire's section width will correspondingly change by approximately 2/10".

Hmm okay not sure why you got closer to 12", perhaps inflation difference.

I'll answer your PM here. I honestly don't know, but think it would be very close.

If you go strictly by section width, the 295 is much wider so that would worry me even without a spacer.

Maybe find someone with your suspension setup and see what they have fit before.
