Original tire size on 78 Golden Eagle?

I could kick myself that I didn't measure the spare before I got rid of it. The spare was actually the original when I got the CJ and was in some unusual measurement that I didn't recognize. I rolled it next to a 31" tire and it looked similar in size. The rims are the standard Golden Eagle 15x8's as well. Can anyone tell me if the original tire size was closer to a 30" or a 31". Just trying to figure out what the original set up was like.

I still have my original spare on my 79. I can measure when I get home.

I measured it and it is a 9-15LT. It measured around 28"-28.5".

A 235/75R15 is equivalent to a 28.9/9.25R15
