    Is there a formula for working out how much a tyre will grow in diameter through the top end of the track. Tyre is a MT P/N 3195, 35.0/15.0-16 on a 16x16 wheel. Would like to know how much room I need to safely give the tyre.

    According to my data recorder using DS speed and the ET slip MPH, my 34.5 Hoosier tire growth calculated to have grown 3" in diameter at 198 MPH. I am sure it is MPH dependant.
