315/30-18 Which manufacturer has the widest tire?

I'm in search of the widest 315/30-18 STREET TIRE on the market. The charts given by the tire companies are proving to be total BS, which has been a very expensive learning experience so far.

Right now I am running Pirelli P-Zero Rosso N5s. Perelli is notorious for smaller than advertised tires. These things are a full one inch more narrow than the BFG 315/35-17 I have on another set of wheels. The BFGs are HUGE. A full 13 3/8" section width and 26" tall.

What I need is a tire that has an actual 13" section width and 25.5" tall. Rims will be 11.5 x 18.

The BFT BFGs will be going on the auction block along with the 9&11.5" Kodiacs they are mounted on. Love the wheels but the tires are simply too big for my taste. No manufacturer offers a 315/30-17 which is really what I need.

So what are your real-world experiences?
