and Fifth is the Rim Diameter.

So, the Stock Fury Tire is 200/50-18 (left out the other numbers for a reason)

Second tire, The Metzler is a 210/50-17, meaning the diameter is an inch less than our stock tire, which pulls in the tire when it get's expanded on the stock rim, giving it a slendering appearance... More detail involved in this, but I am leaving for home soon.
You are a heck of a strong man if you can get a 17" tire on a 18" rim.

I was discussing this the other day with a man who knows what he is talking about! It is a vendor on the site.
It is simple really.
The tire measurements dont match what the measurements on the tire say.
If I am wrong then why is the 250 dunlop bigger then the 260 Metz??
Because it is not built to the true measurements!
A 2x4 is not really 2" x 4".


Sorry about the disjointed ramble, just got out and on some Meds.

I do not know what you mean by "bigger" but different manufactures are going to measure differently. Are they both the same series ?(40, 50, 60) a 40 is shorter than a 50, are they on the same wheel, a 260 may appear narrower than a 250 if pinched down on a rim narrower than it is made for. The 1 constant in tires is the big hole in the middle, 15", 16" etc. and a 17" tire isn't going on a 18" rim, but feel free to try, please make a video for us because something or some one is going to break. Or call the vendor and ask him to do it for you and let me know what he says.

Again, I was running quick numbers from work... not an exact science, was just trying to get my point across...

I'm running a 240-40-18 on a stock rim. Hard to get on, but it works 300 miles so far.

After mounting the tire on the rim just deflate it and slide it in place.Reair it after you get it on.
