Was in my local Jeep place and found a set of 18" Sahara wheels and tires for $500. So now, whats the current opinion on tire sizes for JGC Overland. I'm thinking 265/65-18 or staying with the 255/70-18. Whats the difference in offset-setback from the stock wheels and what sizes are being run?

Rolexjake has the same size tire and similar wheel on his non QL and it fits without issues. You can see pics in the wheel and tire thread here. I think the non QL jeeps acutally ride a bit higher in the front, so you will be fine.

Yes, your speedo will read low by 3%. It is about 2mph at 70mph (reads 70, actually running 72). I've checked mine against a GPS and that is pretty accurate.

I'm trying to decide between 3 AT tires.

BF Goodrich AT
Goodyear Silent Armor AT
Firestone Destination AT.

Most of my time will be spent in the Sierra Nevada Mountains winter and summer. Outside of the obvious price and look of the tires is there anything else you guys can offer to help my decision?

As for bang for the buck the destination ats are way up on my list of at tires. The silent armor at is also supposed to be a good at tire but costs more. The BFGs are really expensive and to me they do not perform any better than the other two offroad and especially onroad. You might also consider nitto terragrapplers they are an excellent at tires and are also very composed on the street.
