2013 Overland Tire help

I have a brand new overland and am about to move from Florida to Colorado (high country). Naturally I want to change out the tires to something more suitable for winter driving but still summer capable. I have chosen the Dueler AT Revo but for the life of me cannot figure out what size will work on the stock 20 inch rims without rubbing, etc. Anyone have this setup and what is the correct size? Any pics?

Someone on another forum installed Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor (awesome tire by the way) in 275/55/20 size. No rubbing at all.

Tire input needed

I bought a set of 20x9 srt aftermarket rims and I'm looking to buy the cooper or Hankook tires in the size of 275/45/20 to put on my 2012 Jeep Grand cherokee laredo x. I have a separate set of winter tires on my old 18 inch rims and don't need winter performance out of the tires I'm buying.

Now before I get too many negative comments I like to share with everyone that my buddy has the same Jeep Cherokee and actually put on 20x10 srt aftermarket rims with 285/50/20 Michelin tires on it. I thought he is totally nuts, but these wheels and tires actually fit and there was enough space around the wheel wells and they look awesome. Personally I think 20x9 is large enough with 275's on it. Any thoughts or comments regarding tire choices?

My upgrade form 18" factory wheels to 20" SRT replicas from Quadratec. Tires are 275/55r20 Nitto TG's. No rubbing at all under normal driving conditions but shop did say that there may be slight rubbing if in a full turn under bumpy surface conditions. That will all be solved next week when I instal the RRO leveling kit.

I went with all 9s since I like to rotate my tires with each oil change.

I believe only the V8's get the HD brakes....more weight and power needs more stopping power. Not sure on the 2014 models though so I would check a couple sources to be sure.

If your rear brake rotors are vented, you have HD brakes. If solid then std brakes. So look at the edge and if it looks like two rotors with a vented sandwich, then they are vented. I posted a drawing awhile ago, I'll see if I can dig it up.

Unless there has been a recent running change, none of the Laredos have HD brakes (vented rears), just the Limited and Overland V8s.

Sac - Jeep looks good. Throw some RRO lift photos up when you get it done if you don't mind.

Are you putting it on or having it done?

Will do! I am putting it on with the help of bro-in-law who is a mechanic.

Thank you, I will check it out. I have a limited so prob a no go. I also looked yesterday and the clearance to the inside of the current 18's is pretty tight?

I appreciate the help!!

Hi guys....what is the difference between the two quotes given to me? As much as I like Sac01's tires.....I need to make sure I have good tires both on snow & ice. If I ever get stuck....then it won't be easy for me to just walk out of the truck and start shoveling.

First quote is: $2,111.32
Second quote is: 2,320.72
Difference: $209.40

The guy is aware of my disability so that is why he suggested these two tires. I do trust the guy but I still wanted to know if anyone can explain the difference or has these tires. By the way....he said these are two different tires but I don't see the difference other than the price.
