Re: 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread

Those cooper zeon LTZ look pretty good too.. I cannot make up my mind on which tires on want to put on. The Michelin latitude tours are pretty pathetic.

Re: 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread

275/55r20 Goodyear All Terrain Adventure on a 2015 Overland V8 Hemi. No rubbing at all heights. I was really on the fence about this type of tire (lighter-duty All Terrain tire) or something burlier (BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2). I'm really I glad I went with this option. I spend most of my time on pavement, and road noise and pavement ride quality on this tire are fantastic. I'd say I lost roughly 1 MPG in fuel economy. I contemplated downsizing to 18 inch rims for better compliance off-road, but the 275/55 on the 20's is a good compromise and IMHO....look great!

Re: Official 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread

Just install the RRO level kit and a set of BFG KO2's 275/55r20. Rides good a little more tire noise but not much. I have these same tires on my F150 just a bigger size. I really like this tire that's why I bought another set for the Jeep. No rubbing at this time, only have 20 miles on the new tires.ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456605903.166391.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456605942.219559.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456605955.190231.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456605967.554952.jpgImageUploadedByJeepGarage1456605977.841833.jpg

Re: 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread

I'm running the Bridgestone Dueler AT Revo2 in 275/55/20 on stock (non-QL) suspension without any spacers either. Haven't noticed any rubbing at all in a couple months of driving all over the place.

Are you saying there are .75" spacers for the tj that fit the rear of the WK2???

I've been looking all over for something like that and couldn't find anything.

Will you provide the details on that spacer kit, I'm definitely interested.

Re: 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread

Hello all,

I went ahead and ordered a set of Kumho AT51 (275/55R20) at a great price. I also ordered a set of Bilstein 5100 adjustable struts for the front.

I'm hoping to get away with just leveling my GC and to not have any rubbing issues with the new tires. My GC is a Laredo E AWD (non QL).

The tires are 11.2 inches wide. I'm wondering if I will need to trim anything in the wheel wells.

Anyone here running these tires?

Will I need wheel spacers?

Will I need front alignment after the struts?

Thanks,

They should fit. I have aftermarket wheels with 34mm offset and I get a little rub in the backs near full compression when I off road. I used to have some issued on the front but I bent a little metal piece and fastener back just on the front inside of the fender. No issues bottoming out the front after installing the Bilstein 5100s. Good choice of the Bilsteins BTW, Many will tell you to set them at the highest setting but you will likely have a higher front end if you do. I set mine at 1.25" and it leveled my vehicle perfectly. Yes, you will need an alignment.

Thanks for the quick reply. I was thinking the same about not setting the struts at the highest setting. I think I will have the struts and alignment done at the same time they do the tire install.

How is your GC driving after the 5100s? Any flighty feeling? Light steering?
