doing that is what is called stagger you take thr roll out (messurement around the middle of the tire) and subtrack the smaller from the bigger to get yuor "stagger". stagger is a tool we use to help turn the car and get the proper % in classes that you don't have much adjustment , basicly more rear stagger will make the car looser on exit and more front will help the car turn on entry
