Also are chances are the tires are actually heavier than spec sheet says.
My wheel and tire combination is lighter than any factory option: I have weighed these wheels/tires separately. I am too a racer just go a lot fasterer a like quickerer.

Lightly-used Wrangler Sahara wheels and 255/70R18 tires (BFG Rugged Terrains were already mounted on the wheels and still have plenty of life left). Others have reported that these should fit just fine; I haven't driven it yet but there's enough clearance at full lock at the entry/exit QL setting.





(QL in OR2 height; it's really easy to get a 12T bottle jack underneath that way.)

To all the folks running 275/65/18 or bigger, how are you storing your spare (assuming a full size spare).

Nope nothing so far, I have 1.5" spacers tho. I don't think you'll have any problems with the 265/70s

New Tire Report

I have replaced the 265/50/20 Goodyear Fortera tires on my 2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude’s 20”x8” rims with 285/50/20 General Grabber UHP tires on all four corners and can report they fit with no issues…no rubbing or clearance problems with the upper control arms. According to the speedometer calibration calculator, the speedometer error at 65 mph should be 1.68 mph, and my speedometer was reading one mph higher than the actual speed previously, so it should be closer to the actual speed now. The tires have a V-tread pattern which is really great for handling standing water on the road (which we have a lot of down here in Florida’s rainy season), and they really look great on the vehicle. I’ll post some pictures of them along with the other modifications I have recently made to the vehicle.

All Terrain Rubber for stock 18x8 2014 Limited wheels

Have these wheels on my 2014 Limited. I'm looking for suggestions on "All Terrain" tires. I had Terra Grapplers on my 2011 Overland (which I LOVED) but it doesn't seem Nitto makes the Terra Grapplers in the 18" size.
