    I'm not following what you're saying here... do you mind sharing what you're referencing?

    OD listed on the chart in inches

    says the 120/80 and the 130/70 are both exactly 19 inches OD - I find this dubious and if it was in mm perhaps we could get a more granular picture of the tire size

    Perhaps even more egregious would be listing the 110/70 and the 120/70 as the same OD at 18 in.

    So, you have to keep in mind that the brochures they provide are for the average person that doesn't understand tire sizes or even how to read tire sizes listed on the side of the tire, nor do they really care what the diameter is, but more that the tire "fits". Ambiguous, yes, but more information than the average person needs to know.

    Quick math from the tire sizes tells me diameters are:
    120/80 is 496mm
    130/70 is 486mm
    120/70 is 472mm
    110/70 is 458mm

    The widths are the first size in the tire sizes:
    120/80 is 120mm
    130/70 is 130mm
    120/70 is 120mm
    110/70 is 110mm

    Hope this helps
