Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

Well, I've summarized the wheel and tire database into an Excel spreadsheet, and added filters for each category.

With the filters, you can select any of the categories and limit the data shown to just what you seek. For example, you can limit the data shown to just the '70 year, then just those 70's with 15x10 rims. Really helps for some quick referencing. You can keep going further, but there's just not enough responses to need to limit it further.

Problem: I don't want to email this database every other day when someone asks for it. I've already PM'ed our friendly neighborhood moderator for some ideas on how to make this readily available.

Any ideas? It's in Excel, and converting it to something else will lose the sort functioning. I'm not so into computer stuff that I will go further than Excel with it - but I will send it to someone if they are willing to convert it to something more web-friendly.

Just looking for some ideas here at this point. Anyone with Excel willing to check it out for me and "test" it as a novice Excel user?

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

I can take a look at it to and see if I can come up with anything. I work in the IT field and it'll probably depend on how much data is there to decide how best to make it web friendly. You can email me through my profile.

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

I'll have to leave a message for Al to see how we could post this on the site. It's easy to put it on the site then maybe link it in the forum.

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

It's no problem to host the excel file for others to download. Of course they need excel or an excel file viewer in order to use it.

Let me know if you would like to do that. It can be converted to html tables, but then the sorting ability is lost.

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

Al, that would be great. Obviously, it would have to be updated from time to time, I could do that if needed - not that hard or time-consuming.

Send me your email via PM or I can dig it up from the membership stuff. Email in my profile works but I don't log into it that often.

I've emailed the database to 2 people already, we'll see if they find it useable. Clint got this great information started, only seems fair someone puts it into a summarized format.

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

Dean,

Good idea, I'll give it a shot but the conversions from Excel don't always translate well. No one can sort it either, but I can presort by year before I save as an HTML.

In the meantime, Al put a link to the database, and a free Excel viewer here: https://www.chevelles.com/database/

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

You could load Adobe Acobat and create .pdf's to send out the file. I use that all the time in my business. Sometimes using html, you get extra folders that make it hard to distribute.

That's exactly what I would do. If you need me to do it, I'd be glad to (and I'm curious to check it out too )

Would you want it to be hosted also?

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

Adobe is great for everyone to view a static database - no sort by year, tire size, rim size, etc. Excel is ideal for that and I think it's reasonably simple to use, all you need is a mouse.

If you don't have Excel, there's a free viewer that Al listed also.

Again, the link to database and free Excel Viewer: https://www.chevelles.com/database/

Anyone wanting to convert it to Adobe can download and give it a try.

Re: Wheel and Tire Database Summarized

Just tried the spreadsheet. Looks great.

Looked at 67's and noticed righta away most everyone has larger rear tires.

Thanks for the info.
