Jason has a sweet setup..

I have the Overand with 20s but want to move to 18s..

The Cooper are 31.48 diam

Would this set rub?

I have 18" wheels with +25 offset and 285/60 Nitto TG's. They fit ok on my old overland and current limited (without QL). Just a slight kiss on the front outer fender on really big bumps (at normal height) and it gets close to the felt inner liner on the front at full lock. With +18 you should be ok for normal driving, and no issues off road at the off-road ride heights. Here is my old overland at OR1 with this combo and my current non QL limited.

+18 versus +25 offset

Webspoke, Will the +18 sffset stick the wheels out further than the +25 offset you run?

Yes, 7mm more, so just over 1/4".

Ok, thanks for the info, maybe I should go with 275/65/18s or 275/60/18s, so as not to stick out so far.. thoughts?

Would the Addicts plus 275/65/18 rub with no lift installed? I have QudraLift on the Overland.

Just put 275/55/20's on last week. What a difference from the stock Forterra's. Jeep sits up a tad higher and the beefier tire look great. Handling is night and day difference. Up in the mountains last week they handled fantastic on the twisties. Ride is very smooth on the interstate and fairly quite.

Yokohamas

Just got a 2013 Overland.

Came with Goodyears.

Traded in 2009 Overland which, also, had GYs.

Not good in rain!!

Want something better - checked out Tire Rack comparos.

Yokohama Parada Spec-Xs look good.

But real world info would help.

Thankx!!!

I'm thinking about switching wheels to a set of 20" Overland Summit take-offs (polished) with a set of 285/50R20 -or- 31.3" all-season tires.

Here are the two tires I'm thinking of going with.

Nitto NT420s -or- Toyo Proxes ST II

The Toyos cost $200/set more than the Nittos. What do you all think? Any experience with either of them?

Performed the 275/55/20 upgrade. Awesome upgrade - it transformed the look of the truck. I went with the Scorpions by Pirelli. Only negative is that the truck is slightly slower off the line, which is definitely noticeable in daily driving. Truck feels heavier. But in the snow, its a beast now! This is the hyper silver color. FYI, 18 inch chromes are for sale - PM me

Just replaced the OEM Latitudes with these M/S2's. The difference is night and day.
