Anyone running goodyear wrangler mt/r kevlars in 255/75r17?

I'm wondering if someone can do me a solid and actually measure the diameter of them? I've heard a lot about how certain brands/styles aren't true to size. Like on their spec lists they'll have a tire that's 255/75 and posted as 31.8 and they'll actually be measured an inch or so smaller. Thanks in advance!

All tires are this way because the manufacturer measures including the bulge of the side walls and you and I do not measure that way.
