285/75 Mtr

How tall are the 285/75 GY MTR's when mounted? I saw them on a truck today and they did not look any bigger then my 265/75 MTR's. I did not have the truck with the MTR's so I could not compare but they looked like they were no bigger. Do they run small or something?

I know what they say but they just looked so small for 285's. But I guess it could of been the truck they were on.

I ran a set of 285s as a trial for a few weeks and to me they didn't look any different in hight. They only to me looked a little taller when the two sizes were side by side on the ground.
