Roll out is another term the measurement all the way around the tire in inches. It is the circumfrance of the tire. If you have one tire that measures 92 inches around on the right side and have another tire that measures 88 inches on the left side you have 4 inches of stagger and if the tires were oppisite it would be reverse stagger. Roll out is also important when you are talking about final gear ratios. If I were to recomend a gear ratio to someone I would need to know his rollout because of the effect tire sizes have on RPM. You may know most of this but I am posting it for some guys who may not know. Hoped I've helped.
