There have been a few attempts at the subject, but its complicated. The WK2 has a tight fit and sometimes one batch fits where another tire batch a year later rubs.... As far as width, take a look at how close the upper control arm is to the tire... that seems to be where a tire rubs first unless you use spacers.... or a different wheel.

The wheel and tire thread has a chart at the beginning .

I did check that chart out, but the 295/45/20 size isn't on there, but I'll check the upper control arm clearance one more time before ordering the the tires, and then will report back on the fitment.

Thanks for the information.

295/45/20 is best fit for a 10 inch width wheel.

I don't know what the previous generation SRT wheels are or the offsets. You will need to know the offsets to figure the back spacing.

An easy thing to do is to go to discount and have them put on a 295 Tire and see if it will fit without rubbing

My Altitude wheels are only 8" wide, so it looks like the widest tire I can use with them would be a 285/50/20. I'm going to order a set of those for all four corners after I do a test fit on the front.

Thanks for the information.

Mew 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.

So I've got a 2011 Laredo base. I'm looking to run Stock 20's with 275/55 Terra grapplers with no other mods, will it rub?

To the people running larger than stock tires, have any of you invested in a tuner to correct your speedometer?

I have the Diablosport Intune DCX and there is an option to change the tire size. It seemed to help some.

I went from 265/50/20 to 285/50/20 tires. My speedo was reading 1 mph more than actual at 55 mph. It is now pretty much dead on, so that worked out great for me. Depending on how large a tire you are going to, the speedo difference may be in the mud and not worth messing with. Here's a link to a calculator that will tell you exactly what the difference will be in mph.

Well, I took the pics but for some reason I can't upload them. I'll have to try it from another computer.
