You sure they are 135 and not 235? 135 is awfully skinny, only
5.31496063 inches wide.

I've never seen any with 175 as the middle number. Whoever made the listing probably made a typo. Those dunlop rover's are supposed to be good tires. $250 is a pretty good deal unless they're really worn out

The middle number is the aspect ratio of the tire. 235 is the width, 75 is 75% of the width would be the height of the tire from the rim. I'm almost positive there aren't any 175% aspect ratios out there.. that would make for a pretty big tire.

A 235/75/r15 is 235mm wide, 176.25mm from rim to tread.
