stupid tire question

When I bought the 08 wrangler. Everyone told me I had large tires from the dealer. I measure the diameter and it was 32" across. they read on the tire 225x75x17. Is this correct in thinking that they are 32's?

Are you sure you read those numbers right?

225/75/17 = 30x9/17

255/75/17 = 32x10.5/17
