Is there anything like the AEV ProCal that you can adjust the computer?
The only tuner available (diablo) claims to be able to adjust tire diameter, but it causes an ABS error code which cannot be cleared. So no solutions available yet for this. As mentioned above, the error is noticeable, plus the larger size will drag down the fuel mileage 1-2mpg.

Interestingly, my 2011 with 31.5" tires in my sig would read 2-3mph low. My 2013 with the same tires reads almost exactly correct, maybe 1/2 mph low based on the roadside radar displays. The only difference is the 2011 was optioned with oem 20's and the 2013 had oem 18's. So there may be a useful difference in the factory 20-18 calibrations.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

Hi,
Just came across your Grand on the site and its pretty much Idetical to mine. I could use some help white doing my upgrades and would really appreciate if you could message me or email me so we could chat. I was wondering if the wheels rubbed at all, and where you purchases your rock sliders.
Thanks in advance for any and all help
best,
Grandolander

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

Thanks everyone for posting, I think you have sold me on the 265/50/20 Nitto Grapplers. I have been quoted $893 and $850 installed by two local shops.

that's about what I paid. They are similar to AT revos in my estimate - which I had on my tahoe.

Drove in slushy snow last weekend and they were nice. I seriously think mileage is down with them from OEM GY, but I don't care. I love the ton of extra rubber in the tread and higher load rating.

I think I finally figured out the weird "kickball" sound I hear sometimes on some roads going over bumps as the tires did little to effect it. It's the air suspension! It must be. They almost look like kickballs, so what else could it be??

being that you have the air suspension, did you notice a harsher ride with the Grapplers? I have heard mostly positive feedback regarding ride, but one person on here did say they were horrible and believed it was a combination of the quadralift and oem size grapplers.

I just ordered a set (265/50/20) for $800 OTD at my local tire shop so I'm hoping the ride remains similar to the oem GY.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

Will the 275/55/20 terra grapplers rub on my stock 2012 grand cherokee limited. No QL? I do 95% road driving! hardly go off-roading. I can't decide between this size and 265/50/20.
HELP!!!!
Pros? Cons etc... I'm buying next week

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

I'm planning to order these tomorrow...which way are you guys facing the lettering? I know they are both solid black but one side has solid raised letters while the other is just an outline of the letters. Does one side look better than the other?

I am excited to get these but part of me is a little concerned that they will be quite a bit louder and a harsher ride paired with the overland air suspension.

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

275/55/20 on stock suspension won't rub. I have been running Coopers Zeon for over a year and paid less than the Nitto OTD.
