2013 CRD Overland - Tires

Hey there One and All

I will be picking my 2013 Overland up in a week but am so excited that I already have stepped rock sliders waiting to be installed. My intention is to have a tough looking luxury 4x4. I want to go to places where the average 4x4 can not get to but at the same time have no intention of destroying my ride for the sake of conquering an obstacle or track. So I have joined the right forum from my reading with the right peoples to give me a hand to get to where I wanna go. I am a beginner at this and am hoping the some of you good folk will be happy to assist with your knowledge and expertise as well as answering some really silly questions.
First place to start is the wheels and rubber.
The overland comes with 20" x 8 rims with 265/50R 20 tires ....
Can I put some Nitto trail Grapplers LT285/55R20 E 122Q on these rims?
If so what would be the problem with the increase in diameter?
Cheers All

If you upsize the tires, you'll need to upsize the spare. Your speedo and odo will also no longer be accurate.

Re: 2013 CRD Overland - Tires

I put 275 55 20 nitto g2's on mine and still have plenty of room even at full lock. I would imagine 285's would be a little tighter. I dont know why people are so worried about the speedo. I just assume im going a ittle faster than what my speedo says. Usually around 1 to 2 mph at 55 i checked by gps a couple different ways. More ground clearance is worth off a tiny bit on my speedo.
Jeep is like a different animal once the street tires are off. The g2's are pretty bad ass and they are the milder of nittos off road tires. Super quiet as well. Fyi i did raise my front suspension level so i have a touch more front room than stock.
