    It is possible to obtain the physical dimensions of a tgm tire?

    The nodes give dimensions.

    On node '0' you can find rim radius:

    [Node] // 0
    Geometry=(0.16,-0.22,0.015)

    Rim radius is 0.22m

    If you've got n+1 nodes, the node 'n/2' determines tire radius.
    For 61 nodes:
    [Node] // 30
    Geometry=(0, -0.32, 0.091)

    Radius is 0.32m

    The first parameter of Geometry=( x, , ) is half of the width on each node.

    Is there any similar items in the TGM to account for rpm growth or pressure growth?

    Thanks

    I think you can't set it directly, it depends on construction and materials. But you can use the 'tire tool' to check how pressure and other variables change tire size.
