I'm not familiar with that tire. If it has a weak sidewall, or if it's rated for a lighter vehicle then the tire will compress. Especially if it has a nice domed top that they count towards the overall diameter of the tire. I've never heard of a tire stretching to a larger size as it wears. Generally if a tire stretches it's going to baloon out the sides, not get taller.

He's bullshiting you. Most tires measure smaller than they say.

Had the same problem here in Australia with those tyres. I'd take them back and ask for a refund. The MT117 sports actually measure up correctly, but not the extremes.

I'm pretty sure only dragsters make tires grow...I've always wondered whats with "tyres" is that how it's spelled over there?

Many tires do not measure their full advertised height, but that seems low to me for sure. As for it them growing over time, then yes they are full of shit.

haha tyres is how it is spelt in English.

the extremes are known for being a bit dodgy with there 33" tyres. i have a set of 31X10.5 and they are fine. my next set will be the 35X10.5 extremes.
