Take your pick, the tire size calculator I found says it is 31.64".
Tire Calculator

I still can't relate to the metric sizes for 16" wheels either.

cheapo 285/75-16 WalMart "Liberator" All Terrains measure almost exactly 32" by my tape measure. They are awful in mud, but aren't too bad in the snow.

They can vary slightly form manufacturer to manufacturer. Pick which ones you are looking at and go to their web sight - they'll typically have OD listed. Remember the measurements are mounted on the recommeded rim width and inflated to max rated pressure (inflation pressure varies by LT load range or P-metric size)

265/75R16 is "classified" as a 32 as mentioned above, which means it actually measures about 31". 255/85's & 285/75's are "classified" as 33's, meaning they spec out at about 32" ACTUAL diameter.
