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.
2012 JGC Overland - Max Steel
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,
12 Overland Black/saddle 5.7
9.5x18 38 ET Vision 142
Yokahama geolander A/T S 275/60 18
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.
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.
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.
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

Reason: You asked a wheel and tire size question...your thread moved to the thread dedicated to wheel and tire sizes.
