Can a tire get stretched????? I ask because I bought a set of used Swamp lites and rims, 12x27. I checked the air pressure and they were all a little high if you ask me, they were 10 to 14 psi. so I adjusted them to 6 psi. But here comes the confusion, When I put the tire up next to the 4 wheeler and compared the 27" tire to the 30" sbacks I have on my 14s, the 27 swamp lite was almost as tall as the 30. That surprised me. I mean, there was maybe a 1/2 to 3/4 inch difference. Idk, maybe when the rims are mounted on the bike it will squat some and make a diff. But I was a little surprised. I bought these for trail ridding, it's so dry around here right now, I don't see mud ridding any time soon. I was looking for a set of 14" rims for some dirt commanders I have, but haven't run across any good priced rims yet. so I bought a whole set of 12s cheap.
