No they don't, but there are a couple of variables like rim width and pis that will have an effect on the actual measured size.

IIRC my 37" KM2's measured 35.5" or so.

KM2s are good tires, but their sizing (and many other tire mfgs too) is false advertising.

Basically for KM2s; If you want 33s buy 35s, and if you want 35s buy 37s.

My 35" KM2s were closer to 33s inflated to 30lbs on 8" wide steelies.. When I was shopping for 37s, the new one mounted on display at 4WP measured 35.5".

It's pretty common on most tires and it's been that way as long as I can remember.
