    Picked up some goodies:

    another set of wings for our 2 flat top V's, I will be getting a set of brackets to mount on our 8.2 so that way we can swap the wings from this 9.2 and our 8.2. our 9.2 vxt already has wings installed.

    the redesigned erskine 2410X 85" hi flow blower

    still need to snap a couple pics of a new set of tires for our 02 HD 235/85/r16 bfg all terrains, tall and skinny!

    and need to upload the pics of our rc100. picked it up from the shop after they did some work on it. new tracks, fixed some leaks, new water pump and some other stuff.

    NICE!! Ok this is kind of a dumb question, but it's about tire sizes. Which # stands for the hight? I know our 09 has 265/75/17's I think.

    The first number (265) is the width in mm.

    The second (75) is the height of the sidewall as a percentage of the width. 75 means 75% of 265 or 198.75 mm.

    The third number (17) is the rim size in inches.

    So to calculate the diameter of a tire: (sidewall (converted to inches) X 2) + wheel

    the first number: 265 is the width of the tread area in mm, the second number 75 is the height of the sidewall from bead to tread as a percentage of the width.

    so 265mm wide = 10.4" wide (25.4mm in 1") and 75% of 10.4"= 7.8" sidewall

    so you have 2 sidewalls: 7.8" x 2 = 15.6" + rim diameter 16" = 31.6" total height
