Thanks! That seals the deal- I'm getting 275/65/18s for my stock wheeled non-QL Laredo!

I'm guessing that getoutandplay's camping pic has it lifted to off-road 2. (and that it's an Overland)

Also looking to replace my stock wheels/tires. But can't decide which direction to go, either keep the 20's and slap a set of the Nitto Terra grapplers on or trade out the 20's and use 18" wheels like 2011Hemi has. Both look great!

Could you guys post picture angles to show the width of the tires? (in addition to the side shots) I'm trying to get a good feel of how the vehicle's stance will look. (something like this picture which I really like the look of also) Thanks guys!

I have a few questions for you. I see you are now running Terra Grappler 275/65/18s on your Black Mopar 18 wheels. I also am purchasing Black Mopar 18 wheels and am trying to decide between 275/65/18 and 285/60/18 Terra Grapplers. Have you had any rubbing issues and do you think the 285s will fit with the Mopar 18s? Also did you purchase the Terra Grappler E or XL rated tire? why?
Thank alot!

You can get a BFG A/T KO in a 265/65R18. 31.7 x 10.7

Need Input:
I am thinking about a 275/65r18 Goodyear Wrangler MT/R Kevlar on either a Black Rock Intruder 18x8.5 or the Mopar Offroad wheel. The Intruder is 8.5" wide, 30mm Offset with 6" BS vs stock at about 8" wide, 50ish Offset and 6.25 BS. I'm thinking the tire will sit the same bc of the increase in width but decrease in BS.

My major concern is tire rub, since the tire is essentially a 32x11.

Is anybody running something similar?

Any and all advice appreciated...I have replaced my 2000 Lexus LX470 with a new 2012 WK2 Overland. Love the vehicle. I need two sets of wheels/tires for summer and winter use. For summer I have purchased 20" tires and rims (standard Fortera HL on Enkei rims). For winter I want the deepest tread I can get as I drive in unplowed snow to get to a remote cabin and like to avoid chains. On the Lexus my Cooper Discoverer STT's did me quite well over the years. Best I could get on the standard WK2 18" rims seemed to be the Cooper Discoverer AT3's; however, the AT3's did not handle in the snow like the STT's did this past year and there were times I could not get to the cabin. Any recommendations for a good offroad deep-tread tire like the STT's or Toyo Open Country that would work?

Spedo Reconfigure

Hello New jeep owner here. Have stock 265/60R18 and was considering stepping up to 265/65r18 for the availability of a Goodyear Trippletred. I was wondering if anyone has re calibrated their spedo without purchasing aftermarket equiptment? I know its roughly a 2mph error at 60, but its a new car for me and i'm anal.

Only a dealer has the star scan system that can change the tire factor, if that is even an option on the WK2.

18" XD Addicts, +18 offset, machined. BFG All-Terrain 275/65/18. No spacers. 2.5" RRO lift kit. Slight rubbing on front tires when wheel turned to the max, nothing to worry about really.

20 inch oem wheels recommend good tires on WK2

I've not had any luck with the tires Good Years with my 2013 Grand Cherokee Limited, looking for a replacement tire's. Any one here who has 20 inch oem wheels, and has had good luck with the tires they drive daily.

My vehicle currently has vibration on the steering and front seats after 70mph. I've had dealership re-balance, I've put more air in the tires 39psi and had the wheel nuts tightened to 100lb/ft torched.

Thanks,
