no just the tire itself, every tire is different even if it says 12.5 they are all different. But in this case 315/75 converts to 34" and 12.4" wide

Every tire is different. I used to run 32's a/t's on my dakota with minimal rub but a buddy of mine had the same size tire only in a m/t and they rubbed a lot.
