HA HA... I know the feeling. I currently am living in Houston (from WY though) and pretty much everything I could find in dealerships down here were blinged and chromed out 2WD Grand Cherokees rolling on 20's. I ended up going up to SW Colorado to buy mine. (Supposedly it was too far away for the dealership down here.)

Have not had them in snow yet.
So you do like your LTX m/s2? I am needing to replace my stock tires (the latitude tours). Was looking at the Defender LTX m/s? Also looking at some Coopers.

I would be interested in seeing this as well. I have been considering going this route myself, as I don't necessarily want a taller tire, but a wider one.

Two of the three are LT tires while the other isn't, I'm guessing P. One is Terra Grappler, the other two are Terra Grappler G2. Looking at the numbers, which is best for the Grand Cherokee in terms of ride, etc. while having the correct load range?

I'm running the G2s in 275/65-18 on my Overland with Quadralift and the stock 18" wheels from the off-road package. They really fill the wheel wells nicely with no rubbing even at entry height. Speedo is off about 2-3 mph due to the increased diameter, but it looks more like a jeep should now.

I ran the prior Grapplers in the same size on my 2011 and really liked them. Your butt Dino will feel the heavier tire weight on acceleration, but it's really not bad for a much more capable tire than what it came with.

Worth noting that this is a Mercedes video specifically targeting not necessarily "chinese made" wheels, but counterfeit wheels that may not be made to factory specs. It's kind of like buying a cheap purse for your wife from a street vendor. It may look like a Louis Vitton, but when the zipper falls out on the second day you know you got your $10 worth....
