    I'm looking at actual cross sections and heights of tires, not the quoted numbers. There are 9 of them that match that criteria in TSL's alone.

    n0rth's are listed as 36x12.50R16's. They are listed as having a 9" wide tread pattern and are 12.6" wide at the widest point on a 10" wheel. So they are likely a bit skinnier than that on his 7" wheels, but they still make my 10" wide tires look skinny.

    Just like my tires are 255/85R16's which are a 33x10, they have a 7" wide tread pattern and measure about 10" wide at the widest on my 8" wheel.

    I am too. I found a few that were like 35.2-35.5" (all listed as 35's) with 10.8-11.6" cross sections, but none that are 36.0+" with a cross section less than 12.5"

    Specs of the exact tire he has on his rig right from the interco website:

    Tire: 36X12.50R16LT
    Weight: 70
    Tread ply: 10
    Side ply: 2
    Skid depth: 21/32
    Tread width: 9.0
    Outer Diameter: 35.9
    Cross-section: 12.60
    Wheel: 16x10



    He basically made up the tire size in his sig based on his own measurements so it is variable depending on what and how he measured.

    I was looking for a comparison pic he did a while back, but it was on a cell phone and was too fuzzy to see the tires...
