Re: 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor (pics)

I have had mine on for about a month now. EVIC MPG readings are about 1-1.5mpg lower. Not sure how much of this is due to speedo error, but I am sure some of the decline is tire related. They feel amazing, quiet and responsive. Great grip.

Are the SA's quieter than the Fortera's at highway speed?


Can you post pics of your JGC at all QL settings?

I'm very close to pulling the trigger on tires, but still wavering between the SA's and Nitto Terra Grappers...

Yes, I'm also wavering between these two tires.

Re: 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor (pics)

Is the Verdict still that there is no rubbing on any settings? Have to make a decision on if i am going to go with the bigger tire or not.

Thanks Tony,
What are your thoughts on the Open country? Assuming the A/T II? Looking at the same tire.

Yes, the A/T II. No complaints really. A little noisier than stock, but not by much. About a 1 mpg decrease. Wet traction could be somewhat improved, but it's more than adequate. They even handle fairly well as I'm able to still hit my favorite off-ramp (35 mph "suggested" speed) at 60 mph. Haven't had much of a chance to get them off-road but during what little snow we had this year they did fairly well.

Thanks Tony! If you were to do it again would you go with another tire? Or does anyone else have any input on which tires they love? I have been logging some serious hours reading reviews on all sorts of tires. There are just all sorts of polar opposite reviews to know who actually knows what they are talking about. I have to make a fast decision. Jeep Dealership apparently royally f'ed up my alignment. Here is the link to the other thread I just started with pictures of my ruined tires.

Beware of Alignment Morons

I had Cooper Discoverer AT3's on my 02 and loved them. Great tread life, quieter than the Goodyears I replaced, no hydroplaning and excellent in snow. It's a 5-rib tread pattern so they aren't squirmy and handle great.

I don't see that they come in the 275/55/20 size on their website.
