Ok, well I ended going with BFG ATs in 265/65/18 on MB Wheels TKO. I haven't had any rubbing issues, but it has been a challenge getting them balanced right after I added the wheels.

I will get some more pics up soon if anyone wants. I also have the stock wheels for sale, PM me if you are interested.

Just upgraded from an 04 Laredo to a 12 Overland and wanted to upgrade the stock tires to an A/T without upgrading the wheels. Does anyone have experience or feedback with the 265/50R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers?

Thanks.

Forgive my ignorance but I have a question for everyone. Most of the tire size questions on here regard ql jeeps. Mine is a non ql hemi. My question is do the ql jeeps have a lower setting and thus more restrictive o tire size changes. Not many AT tires are available in the anemic stock size.
I would like to move up to either a 265 or 275 -65 18". Is this possible with stock wheels

The QL has a "park" setting that lowers the vehicle substantially from normal ride height.

From what I've gathered. You can lift the non-QL jeep with the 2.5'' lift. QL restricts tire size becuase they can't lock in the 2.5'' lift mode. It goes back to the normal height at driving speed. Bottom line you can fit bigger tires on the non-QL jeep than a QL jeep only becuase the non-QL jeep can have the 2.5'' suspension lift installed.

Excellent point!! I like the way you think Richard.

For you guys that ditched your stock tires- how did you sell them and how much did you get out of them?

Craigslist, sold in 4 days. $100 for each wheel and tire each. Sold all 4 wheels and tires for $800 locally. I didn't really care to sell them to get a lot of money or get close to retail. The tires were $150 at discount and obviously stock wheels are more than $100 each. But I didn't have room for any of it so I wanted a quick sell. I am sure $1000 would have been good too but again...I needed them gone. $1500 out the door from discount for my wheels, tires, warranty, install, locking lugs, etc, minus $800 from my stockers, $700 out of pocket isn't too bad for my upgrade! I was and still am pleased.

I actually love my Terra Grapplers. They will give you a quiet ride. I'm running 275/65/18s, so I can't help you size wise, but mine have never rubbed (on or off road). You could do some calculations and compare sizes.

One other thing I have thought about is just because the QL will lift the body 2.5" for clearance at low speed doesn't necessarily mean that driveline or suspension angles are ok for high speed highway travel for long distances. I'm not sure when or if it will cause long term wear or alignment issues, but it's something to consider. Time will tell I suppose

It seems that 285/60/18 Nitto Terra Grapplers actually do rub when flexing the truck...

This is my buddies jeep. He's on **********.org. Username : Nlowell. The tires are 275/65/18. (31.7") rims are stock 18's powder coated black. He has the QLII so no lift. I believe this was taken at OR2 setting so 2.5" above "normal" ride height.

So has anybody found a way to recalibrate the speedo for the tire size change??? I just added 285/45r22's and the speedo reads almost 3 mph off. 72-73 at 70. Can the dealer change it or is a programmer/downloader needed??

Sounds great! Love the photos you posted earlier. Can I ask? How aggressively have you used these off road? Have you hit the bump stops at speed? I plan to use mine in situations I know will fully compress the suspension from time-to-time, (i.e. driving on sand at high speed). I thought I had better double and triple check before I make my purchase. The prices over here in Australia are pretty steep, they are asking $550 per tire for a BF Goodrich AT in that size!!

Hey everyone, We should come up with a sticky of tire sizes that have been installed. With the difference in tread pattern and actual outer diameter it would also be a good idea to list the tire manufacturer and model of the tire. Along with the tire size we should list if we have a lift, tire spacers, rim info (backspacing, width, and diameter).

Anyhow, I'm trying to figure out if a a 265/70/17 Guard Dog M/T will fit. Specs are 80 PSI max, 10.5'' wide, 32.25'' diameter. Rim range 7 - 8''. For $125 each they arn't a bad deal at all. Lots of reviews from the trailblazer market. Here's the website. www.treadwright.com
