Somewhere around there.

Mickey Thompson's website spec's them at 33.1". A word for the wise: tire industry standards are to measure diameter off the vehicle at max psi., in this case 80 psi. At that pressure they are in fact 33". I have verified it. At pressure more appropriate for an LJ (27 psi) they measure about 32 1/4". I was bummed at first cuz I thought I bought 33's. I'm over it now cuz they look good, don't rub anywhere and really didn't change the gearing enough to worry about. I've also learned that 35's foten times are closer to 34's.

Here's a thread I started when I got them. I was pretty hot at the time.

Thank you, like Glockster said it's Metal Cloak from front to back on the sides and a Fab Fours stinger on the front.

The blue rooves are all gone now even if you google it lol

In a few years when I'm out of warranty I would like to go to 35's, RE long arm upgrade (keeping the 3.5" springs) and the metalcloak fenders for my clearance needs. Don't think I'll even need to change bumpstops.

I purchased mine 2 years old with no warranty but I spent $170.00 for my Daimler Chrysler service manual and I like it better then a warranty. When the weak parts break I replace them with beter aftermarket parts and I make sure it's done right. It helps to learn to wrench on your own rig rather then the stealership cause when you break down on the trail you'll be able to fix it yourself. Great lookin rig Glock

10-4

Cost me a $100 bucks to transfer it. Worth it I think. I do all my own maintenance also and just document the hell out of it. I just had the rear diff rebuilt in my dodge 2500 cummins. Warranty paid for all of it except the $100 deductible. Pretty sweet feeling not having to pay the other $2300. Tore up the ring and pinion, the LS carrier and some bearings. Ouch!
