ACTUAL tire size??

I am currently deciding on new tires for my LJ. I have Cavalier Sport King AT's on my TJ (32x11.50x15) and love them. I am trying to decide between the Sport Kings and the BFG All terrain KO's.

What is the actual measured height on a set of BFG all terrain KO's in a 32x11.50x15?

My Sport Kings say 32x11.50x15, but only measures 31 inches high.

my guess is the bfg should be between 31-32" with odds on it being under 32".

BFG's site should have that info in a chart. If not, try one of the major online tire stores.

It'll depend on the air pressure, you're running on it , but

My old BFG 32's measured 31 1/8" VERTICALLY and 32" HORIZONTALLY remember, body weight)

My Hankook Dynapros are 33 1/4" Vertically (at 28psi) and a full 33 5/8" HORIZONTALLY

Call your tire store and ask them to measure one for you. My 31x10.5's only measured 29" on the Jeep, my 33" Duratracs measure 32" on the Jeep.

Thanks for the help. I did call a few places today and it looks like the BFG's measure 31.7.

Thanks again.
