I have never used these winter tires so can't comment on them. But do you really need a dedicated set of winters on your wk2 in vancouver? Unless you're traveling to the interior or whistler often.

Maybe go with the bfg at, I believe some of them have the snow stamp.

Also- maybe make a trip to discount tire in washington- I paid less than your quotes for my procomps and duractracs in the states

You are correct for the most part and your perception of Vancouver snow is understandable. If you were to read this article it will tell you why winter tires are important in Vancouver. http://www.theglobeandmail.com/globe...rticle4181134/

I travel at least 100 KMs a day to/from work - both city and highway. It doesn't snow as much in Vancouver but turns into "Greasy snow" fast. I consider myself a good driver and I have gotten by with all season tires but this year I plan to travel to couple of mountains at least and couple of trips to interior this winter. So just preparing myself.

I am not surprised that you paid less than the quotes I was given.....I was considering traveling south of the border too actually. Since this guy is sort like a friend so thought to give him the business if the difference was less than $200-$300.

I have no idea what brand of tire that quote is for but if you are looking for a winter package in stock sizes look at http://www.tirerack.com/cart/Holding...esMounted=tpms This is for OEM size tires in the Bridgestone Blizzak, a nice looking 18x8" wheel and the TPMS sensors. Around $1550 USD +shipping. They come mounted and balanced. I have never had a problem with Tire Rack,

OK one is a Hankook and one is a Toyo. Both seem to be pretty highly rated. Most of the people here seem to like either the Nokians or Blizzaks. I have owned several sets of Blizzaks and love them.

Has there been any conclusions about the biggest tires you can put on a QL WK2.

I see no issue with 265/65/18

I cannot do 17" wheels d/t brakes

I am considering 275/65/18 with < factory offset rim or spacer

I put 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor on Boss 335B with +25 offset instead of the +54 offset of the OEM rims on my wife's Overland last May. It's just scrubs the felt going lock to lock, no one drives like that unless they're drifting so I think it's OK. We havnt had any issues in a year. It has QL. The odometer is out 4%, not a big deal. A 275/65/18 of the same brand will be .2" taller.

Nope. Early build 2011 Overland that didn't have QL.
It hasn't rubbed on anything that I've heard.

I took what mchassler did in post #32 and added a little more information.

The dark gray boxes highlighted are Stock sizes. I only know the stock FULL SIZE SPARE that I can confirm is in my Overland Summit (should be the same in all Overland's). I can upgrade it if you have the other spare sizes. I also didn't include the 17" rims either.

It looks good though. When I get to my computer ill move it to the first post so it's easier to see.

Sent from my underground lair.
I updated the pic.

*I didn't choose any tire sizes (Diameter) too much less than 30.50 inches as that would be counter productive in almost any tire choice decision.

**I still don't know any of the other spare tire sizes**

How's this on a '12 Overland with QL?

Looking at picking up 5 2013 Wrangler Sahara 18" wheels and putting 265/65/18 Goodyear SilentArmor tires on them. I'll put them on when needed and plan to put the spare in the back too.

I will mostly be doing beach, fireroad and snow here in Northern Cali. No major rock crawling.

I will be on the highway so aero mode should work without rubbing. No real need for park mode.

Will these rub in any of the different QL modes? I've read through the thread and it looks like the answer is No, they should be good. The unknown for me is wheels. I can't find info on the specs: offset, etc for them.

Just looking for some input before I pull the trigger.

Thanks!

24's on the wk2 overland

Hey Guys, Ok so I am thinking of getting a set of 24's for the fall-spring season. I live in Az and we only use the 4x4 during the summer season for the boat and jet skis and ill use the factory wheels for that. I see some people have put 24's on the srt8's but wanted to know if it will fit our 14' overland? So for the one's out there that know if they will fit with the Qudra-Lift suspension please let me know your thoughts. I do not care to hear from you guys that think its still or ugly or rough ride or etc. Its my 50k Jeep and i will do as I please. I just would like to hear from the people that know about the suspension and the fitment. I was thinking 255-275 and 30-40 series. Here is a picture of kind of the direction I am thinking...... thanks for the help guys
