How To Find / Measure Rubber Track Sizes For Replacement Rubber Tracks

save-our-infoDo you need to find a replacement rubber track for your vehicle? There are several measurements and information essential to identifying the correct replacement rubber track for your vehicle. To ensure you receive the appropriate replacement rubber track, you need to know the following information.

  1. The make, model, and year of the vehicle
  2. The Rubber Track Size = Width x Pitch x Number of Links (described below)
  3. The Guiding System Size = Outside Guide Bottom x Inside Guide Bottom x Inside Lug Height (described below)
  4. The type of roller on your track

How to Find Your Rubber Track Size

  1. First try to see if the size is stamped along the inside of the track.
  2. If you can’t find the rubber track size stamped on the track, you can measure the track yourself. The industry standard for identifying rubber tracks is to know the width and pitch in millimeters, and the number of links.

Rubber Track Size Industry Standard Formula

Rubber Track Size = Width (mm) x Pitch (mm) x Links (#)
1 inch = 25.4 millimeters
1 millimeter = 0.0393701 inches

Three Steps to Measure Your Rubber Track Size

  1. Measure the Width of the track in millimeters.
  2. Measure the Pitch in millimeters. This is the distance between the centers of two links.
  3. Links are also known as drive lugs or teeth.
  4. Count the total number of links in the track.

How to Find / Measure Your Guide Size

What is a rubber track guide and guide system? The guiding system is the system of wheels that interlock with the links inside a rubber track. The part of the rubber track that interlocks with the guide system is called the guide. The guide is made up of the links and the trough running in-between the links. It is important to know the size of the guide to prevent your replacement track from breaking, jamming, or being thrown (jump track) from the guide system.

  1. Measure the distance between the outer bottoms of two links across from each other. This is called the Outside Guide Bottom (OG).
  2. Measure the distance between the inner bottoms of two links across from each other. This is called the Inside Guide Bottom (IG).
  3. Measure the height of the link from outside the trough. This is called the Outside Height (OH).
  4. Measure the height of the link from outside the trough. This is called the Inside Height (OH).

Rubber Track Rollers Types

There are two main types of rubber track rollers (center and flange) and two main sub-types of each. Center rollers run between the links of a rubber track. The two types of center rollers are usually called W and X. Flange rollers run along the outside of the links of a rubber track. The two types of flange rollers are usually called Y and Z.

How To Measure Rubber Track Inner Circumference

If you ever need to find the inner circumference of a rubber track, you just need to multiply the Pitch by the number of Links.

Inner Circumference Formula
Inner Circumference = Pitch (mm) x Links (#)
