Rasta,
Can you give us an update on these tires? How has the noise been in the cabin? You still happy with them? Have you noticed any mpg drop? Any chance you could share another pic of the entire side of the vehicle in the daylight with the tires? Seriously thinking about purchasing these tires and would appreciate any additional feedback you can provide.
Thanks!
JR

Love the tires.

They are as smooth as or smoother than the Michelin Lats that came stock. I've had no cabin noise or vibration like I did with the Duratracs I had on my previous truck.

Handling and traction has been great thus far. I've driven them in very heavy rain, through huge puddles (no hydro planing), as well as a couple inches of snow. Temps I tested in are 60-20.

Have not noticed a drop in mpg.

LOVE the way they look, much more aggressive than the Lats. Overall, very impressed.

Thanks, I'm actually looking to see what size tires will fit on the stock limited 18" rims.

I found a set of 2013 JGC Overland stock rims/tires 265/50 R20 on Craigslist. Would these bolt on my 2011 JGC without any spacers, fit in the wheel wells, etc? Also...when going from the 18's on my GC to potentially 20's...what does that mean for towing? Does the shorter sidewall decrease towing capacity? We have a boat we tow in the Summer, so I can't afford to loose towing capacity.

The OEM tire sizes on OEM wheels have the same outline dimensions regardless of wheel diameter.

I have 20s that are XL rated, making them better for towing than 18s that are not XL rated. There are no differences in load carrying or tow capacity ratings as long as you stick with OEM sized tires with at least the same load rating (I think every name brand tire meets the WK2 load rating)

Two things to be careful, don't try to put OEM 17 inch wheel/tires on a WK2 with HD brakes. The SRT and SRT wheels are a different animal.

Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure

Anyone running these on a WK2 yet? Would love to get some feedback on them before I pull the trigger.

Find a good dealer

Who will stand behind what they sell. Goodyear isnt known for the quality control. I try to avoid Goodyear tires at all costs but I may have to seriously consider these when the Lats are worn down.

I drove my GC from the dealer to my tire store last Friday, Dec. 20.
Switched the stock Michelin latitudes out.
Installed Goodyear Wrangler Adventure with Kevlar, stock size. 265x60x18. Adventure package.
I had about 75 miles on the jeep mostly highway some street.
The Jeep drove just as nice with the Goodyears as with the Michelins.
The Goodyears much more tire and on Tirerack rated much better.
Running 35 lbs cold.
Very nice tire.
Looks like it should be the stock tire to me.

Fleet average mpgs under CAFE and Jeep may have gotten a good deal from Michelin. Have over 25K miles on the LAtitudes with no issues. Perform great on road and decent on unimproved dirt roads and across grassy fields etc. Latitudes will perform better on the street than the Gys. Tire Rack reviews are worthless since 90% of reviewers cant tell the difference between oversteer and understeer.

So you speak for the thousands of people on tire rack and have used both sets of tires on one vehicle to review them? Otherwise you are just speculating that the forteras aren't are good as the Michelins.
