I'm sure you can figure out the metric conversion? It's not exactly rocket science...

That said, metrics tend to measure bigger than they should, and standards, smaller than they should.

mudferret i dont know what the hell you just said but your "the search for animal chin" avatar is amazing. 285/75/16 is smaller than the 33/12.5.
thanks guys

33x12.5-16s are wider, the 285s are probably taller (but you'd have to check the manufacturer's specs to confirm that)

I've heard 285's are a true 33" tire, but most 33X12.5 run smaller. Not sure though, just what I've heard

The 33 x 12.50 thornbirds I have on my Taco measure like 31 or 32 inches tall and almost 14 inches wide, but we all probably new how wide they are, do they make a metric 33 (285) for a 15" wheel??? anyone know the specs on Dunlop Mud Rovers?? 33 x 12.50 of course:D Thanks
