Not much help but first you have to define a "true regular 35". The problem is, historically, tire size were spec'd as a maximum size, so if you knew you could fit a 35" from one manf, all others would be slightly less than 35" and more than 34" and fitment would be no probblem. Then along comes the off-road boom. A few off-road tire manufactureres found they could make a name for themselves by oversizing their tires. Nowadays the only way to know if something fits is to try it. In general though AT's (MTR's are AT's) still run under their listed size while MT's are often over. My MTR's are exactly what Goodyear said they would be: 36.8". Now if I run lower pressure and put them on the jeep of course they run smaller. Mounted on a wheel with 35 psi they are what they say they will be.

something that surprised me is that i had heard that MTR's ran small too...until i read JP and they said that the MTR's actually measured pretty close to what the sidewall said.

Yes. MTR stands for "maximium traction reinforced". They are not a mud tire and don't do well in the mud compared to others (so I have heard as I don't do mud). They do very well on rocks and dry conditions though.

I don't think I know of anyone else, that has spent as much time, and effort, as you have. You really are soaking up the facts.

By the way, you are very welcome. You deserve that much.
