    Default Tire Sizes

    Well, short story, after buying my jeep, I have been waiting over a month for 1 tire to come in at 4 Wheel Parts. They said it would be a month, which was fine, but more isn't. I hate it when people give me a time frame and can't keep their promise. When I bought the jeep, one of the tires were really low on tread (rear left) and I wanted to get it replaced. Now I'm gonna have to get new set for the jeep because I can't find on Toyo Open Country M/T anywhere. So I've been looking at a variety of tire sizes and learned something.

    I thought that my 295/75R16's were about 34.5". It turns out that they are only 33.4" x 11.6". 315/75R16's are 34.6" x 12.4".

    I found a good calculator here and thought i'd share.

    EDIT: Never mind, I was really slow this morning, I have 315's.
