    How big are 265's, 275's and 285's?

    How tall and how wide are these three tire sizes?

    265 is 31x10.5x16
    285 is 33ishx11ishx16

    go to www.tyres1.com and to the calculator section to determine tire sizes

    No its not stock height!

    Heres how you calculate it:

    for example:

    285/75/16

    285 divided by 25.4 = 11.22 width
    11.22 x 75% = 8.4 sidewall height
    8.4 x 2 + 16 = 32.8 total tire height

    This is the metric to decimal conversion
