Hi all, after a set of tyres but not sure what to get.

Want something bigger than 33" but not as big as 35!

I heard kl71s are smaller than they say so do I go for something like them in 35s and hope they come in around 33.5-34.

Or

Something like an insa turbo special track 285/75/16 as very aggressive yet still been told they are bigger than the 33" they are meant to be and closer to 33.5-34

Or do I go for something completely diffrent,

I've also heard diffrent casings / rims can make them bigger... How does this work?

Some casings are larger than others, which in turn makes the remould larger in diameter.Sectional width of a tyre will vary by approximately 5mm for ever half inch change in rim width.

If you put a new 285/75 mud terrain against (for instance) an Insa Special Track i would expect there to be around 20-25mm difference between the 2.
