    triple-black
    2000 CamaroSS convertible

    a tire such as 275/40-17 means:
    275 = tire width = 275mm
    40 = sidewall size in % = 40% of width = 275mm x40% = 110mm = 4.33"
    17 = rim size in inches = 17"

    overall diameter = rim size + 2 sidewalls (bottom + top) = 17" + 2x 4.33" = 17+8.66 = 25.66"

    Now you can do it for any size.
    p.s.: 1" = 25.4mm
