Bf Goodrich all terrains

Is anyone running the bf good rich all terrains on their 11 JGC with the lift kit? If so what is the biggest we can go?

Do you experience any rub? I have the RRO lift kit and I can see the bolt in the UCA is really close to the stock tires. Just trying to go bigger to fill out the wheel well.

I went from a 265/50/20 to a 285/50/20, from an O.A.H. of 30.43 to 31.22, or an increase in tire diameter of about 0.8". I still have about a finger's width of clearance between the UCA bolt and the top of the tire. My vehicle however does not have the adjustable suspension.

Not on regular street driving nor if I turn the wheel all the way to one side, I haven't gone over a huge bump or anything yet though.

I am waiting on my RRO lift kit to be shipped. Apparently they are on backorder.

I have not experienced any rub on mine, at least that I can tell...even while wheeling.

Quicky RIM Question, with winter season coming up I'm considering winter tires/rims on my 2014 WK2 Summit.
The stock goodyear fortera's are what they are (for a $120 tire..) ok on highway but did not do good on snow/ice at all (IMHO)

So - Will 2012 - 2013 non SRT 20x8 (9107) RIM fit the 2014 WK2 ? They look identical, and would bet 99% yes but just wanted a double take on it .

Thanks for the reply.

Any 2011-2015 OEM 18 or 20 inch rim will fit the 2014 summit. Don't look at 17s.

Thanks!, I ended up with a spare set of Factory summit rims identical to what I had.Think I got a descent deal $765 for set of 4 with TPMS. They look pretty new. came off a vandalized summit.
I mounted 265/50 Continental LX20's on them, they.... ride very nice.
Plan is on other set to remove goodyears and mount snow tires.

I had a set on my wife's Pilot and they were great in all conditions we came across, rain, snow, ice, etc. Just make sure they are available in the size you want. They are not available in the stock 20" size but are in the stock 18" size.

I just bought a 14 Overland. I have had an issue with the OEM fortera's that came on it. Tire/steering wheel vibration even after road force balancing. Been a terrible experience. So, I am thinking about scraping these for a different brand. Does anyone know if the MS2's will fit the overland? 275/55R20. Thanks. Those look really good on the Jeep btw!

BFGs

I just received my 10 spoke black German made 18s for my GC . I have seen them on a number of rigs and they look awesome to me. I am getting the RRO leveling kit and am either going to get the BF Goodrich AT KO in 275/65 or 275/70 or wait until November when the BFG AT 2's come out... Anyone have the 275/70s with just the leveling kit?

Just picked me up a 2012 Laredo 4x4 with 28,000 miles and the chrome Altitude rims. I will post pics as soon as I can. I'm a first timer Jeep owner now after trading in my Nissan Titan.
