Can anyone tell.me before I pull the trigger very soon if I will have a problem. I ha e the level kit. I'm getting 17x8.5 tko's with 18 offset. This will put it put to the fenders. I want to get 265/70/17 instead of 265/65/17. Will that extra half inch between tire and fender cause me any potential problems with the fender if I hit a big bump or go off-road. . May be a dumb question bit I'm worried about that.

20 inch oem wheels recommend good tires on WK2

I've not had any luck with the tires Good Years with my 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited, looking for a replacement tire's. Any one here who has 20 inch oem wheels, and has had good luck with the tires they drive daily.

My vehicle currently has vibration on the steering and front seats after 70mph. I've had dealership re-balance, I've put more air in the tires 39psi and had the wheel nuts tightened to 100lb/ft torched.

Thanks,

Would this set rub?

I have 18" wheels with +25 offset and 285/60 Nitto TG's. They fit ok on my old overland and current limited (without QL). Just a slight kiss on the front outer fender on really big bumps (at normal height) and it gets close to the felt inner liner on the front at full lock. With +18 you should be ok for normal driving, and no issues off road at the off-road ride heights. Here is my old overland at OR1 with this combo and my current non QL limited.

+18 versus +25 offset

Webspoke, Will the +18 sffset stick the wheels out further than the +25 offset you run?

Yes, 7mm more, so just over 1/4".

Ok, thanks for the info, maybe I should go with 275/65/18s or 275/60/18s, so as not to stick out so far.. thoughts?

Would the Addicts plus 275/65/18 rub with no lift installed? I have QudraLift on the Overland.

Just put 275/55/20's on last week. What a difference from the stock Forterra's. Jeep sits up a tad higher and the beefier tire look great. Handling is night and day difference. Up in the mountains last week they handled fantastic on the twisties. Ride is very smooth on the interstate and fairly quite.

Just got a 2013 Overland.

Came with Goodyears.

Traded in 2009 Overland which, also, had GYs.

Not good in rain!!

Want something better - checked out Tire Rack comparos.

Yokohama Parada Spec-Xs look good.

But real world info would help.

Thankx!!!
