I would guess 285/75R16 (~33"x11", I think).

They're Goodyear MTRs. I have had a couple sets and really like them.

That looks like it was taken at ECR. Might want to ask Mike.

X2. Too narrow to be a 285.

Goodyear never made the MTR in a 255, I don't think.

Found this:

It was a 265/70/16, the inside had nice leather. I don't think Mike even looked at the tires. We just kept checking out the leather....
They were not that far from stock, so didn't look too hard at them.

285 75 R16 or 255 85 R16. I much prefer the latter as you lose less turning radius.
