Trying to determine the height, width, and rim size/diameter for a 11.2-24 tire - can anyone help? Also, are there tables (or secret decoder rings...) for those of us who are not "tire literate" to determine this information for other tires with similar descriptions? Thx

An 11.2R-24 would be 43.4 inches in diameter with a 24 inch wheel the overall width is 11.2 inches

Thanks for the help - now I understand what the "11.2" and "24" represent. Were you able to determine the diameter (43.4") from these two figures as well or did you go elsewhere for that information?

The FAQ link at the top of the page now has the Tire Size link to the Tire size Table at the Firestone Ag Site

A good rule of thumb for overall tire diameter is rim size plus 2 times 85% of the tire width. - Usually this will get you within an inch of the true diameter. - An 11.2R-24 would calculate to 43.04 (actually 43.4)

Did you inadvertantly post your follow-up (and the previous one) to the wrong message? If not, what does this have to do with Bill's follow-up re: tire sizes??? Just want to make sure I'm not missing something...
