Scott Tissue sheets used to be larger. The rolls used to fit just right in my circa 1968 built in toilet tissue holders. I could barely remove a full roll if I put it on wrong. Those were the days! Now that they have grossly reduced the width of the rolls, removing a full roll is not a problem. Scott tissue 1000 sheet rolls now measure a skimpy 4.1″ x 3.7.” That 3.7″ size is the width, which is not wide enough.
