Has anyone measured up their standard rubber?

Hey guys, has anyone measured up their standard rubber?
I was tinkering this fine fathers day and had my standard ML 245/65r17 (29.5") up against a 265/70r16 (30.6") from my MK and they were both the same diameter and width.
I then measured next to a 31x10.5r15 and the stockies were larger?
Not sure if I've been drinking too much but that's what i found.

The 31x10.5 is on the right

It depends on the brand and tread of the tyre. The two tyres in the centre of this pic are the same size and both are sitting hard against the wall, yet the difference in diameter is quite large.

If work is so terrific, why do they have to pay us to do it?
