HOW TO USE THE CALCULATOR & FIND YOUR MEASUREMENTS

Corner Weight

Use tire scales, as used by racing teams, or weight the vehicle on axle scales used by trucking companies.

Make sure to weigh the vehicle in the configuration of its most frequent use. Add weight to compensate for the driver, passengers, and cargo in proper locations.

If the suggested scales are unavailable, you may use the table below for approximations.
