10mm is only about a half an inch. (12.5mm= 1/2")

Multiply width by aspect ratio 285 x 35% = sidewall height (99.75mm)

285/35/22 = about 11.2"wide x 29.8" tall with a 4" sidewall

a stock R/T 22" 285/45/22 is 11.2" wide by 32" tall and has a 5" sidewall

1" = 25.4 mm

I wasn't getting to exact specs. All I was talking about was the 45 for 2011 R/T and the 35 for his tires on the sidewall

and I'm attempting to educate you that the "45" and "35" in reference to aspect ratio (width:height) , not a measurement in millimeters.

the 45 and 35 numbers are a percentage of the tire width

So the difference is 10% , not 10 mm's
