Anybody here run 32x 11.5\" swamper SX tires?

If you do, could you please do me a favor and measure how tall they REALLY are on an 8 inch wheel. I am pondering buying a set, and I have heard they measure only 30" tall, and i have also heard they measure a true 32" And that is quite a big difference. Nobody around my area has any that size for me to measure myself.
Thanks in advance.....

SXs tend to run a little small. Also, they are heavy bias ply tires. Put those under a light weight sami and they will beat the hell out of you if they are not balanced perfectly, and good luck doing that. They also have very thick sidewalls, so they don't flex all that well. I ran 32x10.5 swamper radials and really liked them, they worked well and were a very good fit for a Samauri with a springover. I have 33x12.5 swamper SSRs now and I also like them, but I am having some issues with getting them to fit in the wheel wells. Also they rubbed the springs until I put on wheel spacers, which made the fit problem worse. but the tires themselves are awsome.

Here is a pic with the 32x10.5 radials on 8" wheels

The SX's tend to run small, while the SSR's tend to run big. My 33x14.50 SSR's are about the same diameter as most 35" radials, which makes them a tough fit in the Samurai wheelwells. Their added width certainly doesn't help either, but it definitely pays off in off-road traction. I have mine mounted on 15x10 steel wheels from Rocky Road. Despite the wheels' 2-inch backspacing, the tires' inner shoulder lugs still rub the springs at full steering lock, but not enough to cause any problems. With these wide tires and small backspacing, my zuk looks wide enough to be on full-width axles, but it's still on the Samurai axles.

I acquired some used ones with about 40% tread on 2 of them and those ones were a good inch taller then some other tires I had which were 31's. The road horrible and they didn't flex at all.
