    LOL!! I hope you don't take this the wrong way but if what is stated on Goodyear's website were accurate, we wouldn't need a thread like this to point out what the "TRUE" height of all our tires are. That is why I am asking everyone to post up pics EXACTLY like the ones I have posted, with a VERIFIED 30 PSI in the tire and with a note as to HOW MANY MILES are on that tire. You still have not posted any of that.

    Thanks! So long as we can get everyone to follow the EXACT SAME metric, I think it can be quite helpful.

    Don't worry I don't take it wrong. I just was on lunch and posted the info I did as 32" was the actual height at 30 psi when I put the tire on and hadn't gotten a chance to take a picture to verify with a tape measure and I will do so when I'm at home later! I do apologize for any confusion I may have caused

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
