One thing by jacking the wheel up and going by circumference is that it is not really accurate for field conditions.

Total distance traveled per revolution MAY change due to field conditions.

Same idea as calibrating a spray monitor for speed calibration via distance traveled. It ALWAYS recommended to do the calibration in field conditions with a half full tank. Full tank will be different than an empty tank, so the half is the medium to average out. Hard surfaced road will give different distance traveled per revolution than a softer field surface.

It all depends on how "picky" you really want to be.
