is a 285/70/17considered by folks to be a 33” tire? I know that it calculates a little less than that but I am curious what folks say here.

I am new to off-roading and I am looking at various trails and difficulty ratings. Some of the descriptions say “33-inch+ tires needed”........ me being me, I am probably overthinking this but...... is a 285/70/17 a “33 inch tire”?

Ooooops typo in heading..... sorry.....
