Woahh woahh!! Big debate on cheers

4-1/4 inches is a long way off 108mm, its 107.95mm. Laughing

These sizes are metric equivalents of imperial sizes. This has caused me some problems over the years. For example with plumbing:-

22mm copper pipe is nowhere near the size of 3/4inch pipe. You try and get a 3/4 copper O ring to fit on a 22mm copper pipe!

Where you backwards rim tweakers still live in the dark ages. Can't legally buy an ounce of tobacco anymore but you can still get a 15" tyre.

Bet those EU bods have kittens over this Laughing

Go and buy a length of 3"x2" timber and measure it. Short changed or what!! They never over sized them after all this decimalisation scam.

Ahh ya bastard, stabbing me with my own steel rule.

Decimal maths is flawed from the outset from my messing with complex numbers. Pi is very real buy it has no decimal.

Now you've got me thinking here, dangerous yet enjoyable Twisted Evil

........Gets on the wikipedia know its all sort of factually incorrect website thingie.

Now I've never quite bought that an inch is 25.4mm, its just too round of a number. But this makes sense...

In 1959 the "International Yard and Pound Agreement" was adopted where we all got screwed once again. Feckin politics!! Bet you pair remember this Wink

1 Inch should be 25.4000508mm (to 7dp) the cheating French/Italian/German/Spanish bastards!!!! How many miles of yarn better off has that made them.

22mm is much closer to 7/8" then 3\4" thats about an eigthtish and they tried metric tyres some metros and Granadas had them it didn't catch on even over in euro land.

I never realised the whole metric tyre failure attempt, turns out they made some 1990's bmw's with 230/55/390

Now the only people who have any are dunlop and your looking at over £300 a tyre if you can find any.

or if you have a dreaded metro you are stuck with remolds I think they even used a different PCD so you can't swap wheels unlike the granny which you could swap back to normal ford wheels or remolds.

No way, just been looking over some metro and montego forums!
Loads of these guys are literally stuck without rubber.

There are other wheels that fit the same PCD but are really hard to find, something like pcd 4x92.5 ?!

Sounds like the tyre manufactures were trying to corner the market with silly games like latest trend for run flats and no spare wheel.

I might have them Twisted Evil

And I'll worry about making them fit afterwards. I can see a fair bit of cutting the arches going down.
