Guys,

Each of you have installed a 32" x 10.83" tire on your factory wheels. One a 275/65r18 and the other a 275/55r20.

2011Hemi, I am not sure if you have QL. I know that getoutandplay has QL.

Since the time of your original posts have either of you experienced any problems with the 32" tire in your stock setup? More curious about when turning in a circle and things like that.

My reason for asking...
I installed the Rocky Road 2.5" Spacer Lift (you may have seen my post) and I am baffled on what size tires I can truly fit.

Rocky Road's website insists that a 275/55r20 (32" x 10.83") is the largest tire that will fit even with the lift. Obviously, there is plenty of room in there for a taller tire if one were to drive in only straight lines. But, I am unable to determine the amount of room for turning.

I would like to put a 275/60r20 (32.99" x 10.83") tire in there and I do not want to use spacers. I am not adverse to trimming the inner felt fender if needed.

Could either of you, or anyone else with a 32" tire and stock rim, take some photos inside your fender showing the amount of room with your 32s?

I'd really appreciate it.

Now what is the off set you're running on those? Do they stick out much if at all beyond the wheel wells/flares?

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?

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.

Hi All - I'm planning to pick up the black mopar rims for my whilte Laredo. I'm also going to have to pick up some new tires.....is the consensus that 275 65 18 will fit without rubbing on a stock Laredo without QL? My other thought would be going w/ 265 65 18 just to be safe.
