    Default Tire Size Conversion Metric/Standard

    I've been watching Craigs list for some tires. I have only been paying attention to the 33x12.5x15 tires. I've seen some metric sizes that look big just basically ignored them since it wasn't what I was watching for.

    Today I finally got around to finding a metric/standard tire size converter. I see that LT305/75R15 is a 33" tire, but how do I tell what the width is?

    I guess I should have looked up what then numbers mean.

    Now the search to find the tire closes to it.
    Then enter the new tire and the "correct" tire here to see the difference:
