To be completely accurate, yes. It is a 33.5 inch tire if I remember right which would through you off some. If you aren't really picky you would probably be fine without speedo recalibration as long as you know you are a touch off.

I had them on my 09 and swapped them onto my 13 it's less than 1mph at 65 just depends how picky your are. I am very happy with the tires on and off road.

Because the difference in tire size from stock is so small, it doesn't affect performance right?

Any time you change height, width, weight ect, you will have changes to performance. The question is how much. This tire choice should be minimal as far as that goes. And it looks good

It will lose a small amount of mpg due to extra weight and the tread over the stock car tires there come with but I didn't notice any huge difference. I reset the size on my 09 but haven't on my 13. I am happy with the look and they don't make much noise for as aggressive as they look. There not to bad in mud and loose dirt. I would recommend some mud flaps cause when you leave the mud the do throw chunks of it.
