    there are many variables that affect tire height, such as brand, rim width, vehicle weight, and other stuff I am not thinking of. I'm not sure that there would be much of a noitcable difference between a 37.5 or 38.5 true height tire. You may be worring too much. If you really want to know, find some people in your area with that size tire, and go stick a measuring tape on it :wink1: hope this help a little bit.

    yea dude dont worry about the advertised height and the actual height...
    just buy your tires... put them on and see if they fit.. then go from there..Your gonna have to cut... after you get the initial cut done, the rest is a cake walk.. and your gonna want to cut more...
