That's something I haven't exactly conquered yet

I've still got the standard size spare installed. Not exactly sure how that'll work out in the long run...

I have a friend who had the same tires on his old Cherokee and those things lasted a long time! No i dont have the QL so in that case they might not fit?

Good to see people heading up north in Michigan, it is beautiful up there! I try to go up there as much as i can.

I would assume that the stock ride height is close to or the same as "standard ride height" with QL, but I could be majorly wrong.

We venture up there a couple times a year. Absolutely love the weather. Snow included.

Just for comparison......newly installed 275/55r20 Goodyear Adventure ATs on stock Summit rims.

If you put your QL in park mode and turn the tire you rub at all even?

I think that's the first oversize stock Summit rim pic I've seen. Thanks for that! I'm really debating oversized K02's or stock size Michelin LTX M/S's on mine.

Re: 275-55-20 BFG T/A KO2 on stock rims

Wou don't recommend this tyre size for off-road use. I bottomed out the suspension on a bump and now have a crease in the front qtr panel - it's hard to see fortunately, but it's there. Also the panel seems to have closed the gap at the front with the bonnet.

Still running them, but making sure I don't get full compression of the suspension - get the next size down

Thanks for the additional pics. I like these rims, but am starting to wonder what polished or even chrome Overland rims might look like with bigger tires on a Summit.
