Your WK looks great Alaska-HWY JK, you have a slightly wider stance with those less backspaced wheels. I am a bit concerned with the UCA bolt hitting the larger tires with OEM 20s but it looks as others have done this already without issues. I checked at the dealership for smaller wheels and found that they cost a lot more then I thought. Thinking of just running the 20s with the 275/55/20 GYSAs for now. Have any of you tried the RRO level kit with this set up, over the top strut plates can cause problems if not engineered right from what I have learned with the KK?

Just got five 2010 Sahara wheels and new 265/65/18 GYSA . The spare fits in the compartment aired up, I need to extend the lock down bolt. Foam tire jack holder trimmed to fit. I like the profile stance of these wheels and no rub at stock height, clears standard calipers by 1/4". Now I need to find someone local who wants to buy my 70th Anniversary 20s for thier street Jeep.

Will a 275/55/20 on the stock 20s overland cause any long term damage to my powertrain? It's only a 5 mm increase...I don't think the width is that much of an issue. Anyone here try it on the 20s? any rubbing?

I recall seeing another member here get denied warranty coverage when his GC died while towing. The dealers claim that the added diameter of the wheels caused accelerated wear on the powertrain.

it sucks for the 20" wheels...all the good tires comes in a standard size of 275/55/20 but the OE tires are 265/50/20 Nothing A/T comes in this size...

Check out the Nitto Terra Grapplers. They fit the stock 20s. That's what I would put on a WK2.

thanks for the recommendation. Any comparisons between the nitto terra grapplers and the yoko geolander ats?

noise, wet-dry-snow-slow-ice traction, tread wear?

I bolt these on when I go off road, then I switch back to the stock 20" wheels and tires when I get home. So far they have performed very well off road. I've encountered no rubbing in my 2012 Quadra-Lift equipped Overland, (i.e. park mode, aero mode, off road at full articulation, etc.). I'm taking a trip up to Fraser Island at the end of the month. That should provide an excellent test to see if they rub.

These were the only mud terrain tires I could find in Australia in this size. They were plenty of dual use and all terrain options, but this was the only mud terrain tire I could find. They are quite loud on the road, needed to turn the radio up a bit to drown them out. And I did notice a small loss in power. Since I only use them off road, and they perform great there, I don't mind too much.

The first photo is in Off Road 2. The next 2 photos are in Normal Ride Height. The off road photos were taken at the Glass House Mountains just north of Brisbane.
I think this is the best looking wheel and tire combo yet! Nicely done!

So I didn't want to start a new thread because my question is on par with this one. Something I keep forgetting while on my tire search is will a full size spare of it fit without raising the trunk lid? Pretty much concerned about the width here. Like I saw someone had taken a picture of his 275/65r18 mud terrain mounted under the floor and the floor couldn't close all the way. Anyone else experiencing problems like this?

Looks good did you get that at Morehart Murphy up here in Durango? They had one exactly like that.

Mine just fit if you take the plastic trays out; I don't think you can go much taller or wider and still get them to fit in there. I can take a pic if you want to see it. My tire size is below in my sig.

If you wouldn't mind, I would appreciate that. Ultimately, I want to run 275/65/18 but that is not going to happen so lol... so you are just a little taller than factory right?

So I'm confused there are guys that run 275/65/18's on overlands with QL correct and others that say they won't fit? So will they is my question I've looked and can't seem to find a definite answer. I'm looking to get some mud tires because I hunt a lot and it gets muddy in Louisiana

Sorry for the crappy phone pics but it was fastest. You might be able to get a 275 in there and still close it but I'm not sure. These are a little taller than factory.
