Where Else?!

Where else, but here!
Can someone please tell me what the difference is between:
255/70R18
&
32.1X10R18??
I checked my stock wheel and it also gave the cross ref. wheel also. I'm guessing they are the same but not? So, if I was to replace my tires what would make me go with the 32 and not the 255 size?
I'm looking to replace my sneakers soon and found the sizes but nothing explaining the differences etc.
Sorry, newbie here. Learning Jeep stuff a little at a time and now it's the wheels.
thnx

Those sizes are just the metric and non-metric way of saying the exact same size.

What are you trying to do?

I want to buy some new sneakers. I didn't know if going with the 32 meant I needed a different size rim also, but you answered my question.
While we're on the subject, what would be the next size/s up I can go the most without changing rim size or lifting? Basically, the stock tires obviously have that plain stock look and I'd like to perhaps get a beefier look without changing out the stock rims or put a lift. Not looking to do any of that right at the moment anyway. Not sure if anyone else has gone up a tire size/s using their stock rims and I'm wondering what size/s they have used without the tire rubbing etc.
Sorry, first time Jeep owner and just need some lessons in each dept.
Thnx for the help and suggestions.

If you haven't read through this sticky: https://www.wranglerforum.com/f27/lar...er-142837.html

I would recommend that first (at least the first 4-5 pages) THEN if you have any more questions, either post in there or here to get more clarification.
