I keep in my GC a flat repair kit, this has the needle tool and glue and the plug.. easy to install, better than going through a wheel/tire change out. Also keep needle nose pliars in vehicle to get the object out of the tire and a small air pump that plugs into the accessory plug.

Re: 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread

I know a lot of people change out to 275/55/20 on the stock wheels and get no issue with rubbing, but I think some of them are really too close for comfort, at least for me. I am also interested in the Coopers AT3 but I would probably install a thin spacer just to give it a little bit more room.

I have the AT3 and while it is very close, I've had no issues. No problems at full lock, slow speeds, highway speeds or off road with suspension bottoming out and full articulation. Those pics and trip report to come in next two weeks when I get back. In Moab right now and San Juan's next week.

Do you have the QL suspension on your WK2? It would be very helpful if you can take a few pictures of your suspension/wheels under fully compressed situation. Btw, how do you like the performance of the AT3 both onroad and offroad?

Make sure to let us know which trails you run in Moab. I've had my JK down there 3 times and love it. I keep telling my wife we'll take her Overland on Hell's Revenge, that one freaked her out after 8 days at EJS in 2011. I'm sure it would handle it without issues if you bypassed some of the major obsticles. Have fun, it must be hot down there now.

I'm running Cooper Zeon LTZ in 275/55/20 ( Cooper Zeon LTZ 275/55/20 Review )and positively no rubbing at all extremes. They're more agressive than the very good AT3 which I also looked at. A spacer is unnecessary and introduces the potential need for longer hub studs.

No rubbing but how close? I also see your WK2 is not equipped with the QL, just wonder how will that affect the fitment on the QL.

I do have QL and no rubbing in any setting. The member from Alaska that has the Zeon also had QL and reported no rubbing.

Care to share with us on your impression of the Coopers AT3 both on and off-road?
