    I was once told (cannot remember by whom anymore) that the half size tires (38.5 39.5 etc) were a mistake at the tire manufacture and were sold as half sizes. now this isnt really true is it? I had always figured that was the way the size came out compared to the metric measurements. :dunno:

    Any known mistakes at a tire manufacturer are thrown into a big trailer out back and hauled away.
