After about 10,000 miles, my 35" KM2's measured just under 34". KM2's are about an inch off on all sizes. I've heard and seen good things from the Toyo's, but they are a little heavy, so may take a little more weight to balance- idk.

The KM2's do perform very well and exhibit pretty good on road manners- although my 35's were louder than my 37" MTR's.

You need the rim size in that equation it makes a difference...Go to the calculator at discounttire.com and it will show you all the equations.

Always forward never straight sometimes upside-down!

My 35" Mickey Thompson Baja MTZ's measure exactly 33" from the ground to the top of the tread. I'm not sure how many miles are on them, tread is probably half of what it once was. So their "35" is really only 34-ish anyway, minus the tread and bulge from being under-inflated puts me at 33.

Keep this in mind when you do get new tires - you need to recalibrate your speedo for the MEASURED size, with the amount of air pressure you want in them, not the manufacturer's stated size. Measure from the ground. When I programmed the speedo at 34.whatever it was off, when I reprogrammed it at 33" it was spot-on accurate with the GPS.
