Good info.

Or if you want to convert it yourself:

1. take the first number (the width in millimeters) and divide by 25.4, this give you the width in inches

2. multiply be the second number (aspect ratio) divide by 100 (percentage), this gives you the sidewall height

3. multiply by 2, the add the 3rd number (wheel diameter)

Example: 275/60 R20 (factory 20" Ram tires)

1. 275/25.4= 10.82677 inches

2. 10.82677*60/100 or 10.82677/.6 = 6.496 inches

3. 6.496*2 = 12.992 + 20 = 32.992 = 33" tire height.

That chart and formula will get you in the ballpark, but depending on the manufacturer the actual tire height will vary because of tread pattern or what have you. Case in point:

265-70-17 AT tires:
Formula Height: 31.61
Nitto Terra Grappler actual height: 31.57
BFG AT: 31.8
Dick Cepek Radial F-C II: 31.7

Not that a 10th of an inch makes that much real world difference, but just pointing that out.

35/12.5-R17 vs 315/75-R17 Tire Comparison - Tire Size Calculator

Or you could use this tire conversion calculator. It shows the sizes side by side. I hope this helps.
Just disregard the sizes on the link that's there. When you click it, just re-enter the sizes.
