    http://forums.mtbr.com/8390714-post41.html has width listed, but I don't recall seeing height.

    I've got BFL's on hundies (USChopper's), but not sure how I would measure height.

    Circumference is 92 1/4" around the top of the centerline knobs, but that includes error inducing mold tits. Implied diameter from this is 29.36".
    This isn't a "you're doing it wrong" topic.

    Diameter from floor(bottom of tire) to top of knobs at 10 psi for good measure.

    You need to know the radius to the widest point, too.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Anyone have this info yet? Width, height, and, as shiggy added, the radius to the widest point?

    Good point. I might be able to fit it on the front, though. The thing about Pug is that the widest point between the stays is well ahead of the widest point on the tire.

    I got 29.8" to the top of the tire at about 10 psi on the wn prc 100mm rims. Also about 4.4" wide at the widest point. This is compared to endos at 29.25 and 4.3" under the same conditions on the same rim. I think there is a TON of variability in the BFL dimensions.
