Nothing. Only issues was the Zeons don't come with a mileage warranty. The AT3 do. And the AT3 have slightly better snow traction. And being that I drive over a mountain everyday for work every little bit helps. Not knocking the Zeons because I love them.

OK, I hear ya!

Well now I've seen two people that say the 275/55/20 Zeons rub on the standard suspension, yikes! My big concern is that even if I get the RRO lift in the front I don't want to worry about hitting a speed bump hard or going off-road where there might be some flexing. If that's the case I'll consider getting new rims and going to a 265/65/18.

I'm saying wait until pictures. They don't rub. Close to the upper control arm bolt but no rub

It is rubbing in the back. Just got home, I will go out and get pics. No rubbing in the front. it has about 3 credit cards worth of room in the front.

Interesting. I just looked at mine and it's close like the control arm bolt but no rub. The only explanation is the mold is off a bit for the liner when it was casted.

Did you stick your hand back there between the tire and liner to see if it touches?

Re: 275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

Yes I did. It is barely touching. Seems to rub worse while braking and dips in the road while moving.

Again my only possible explanation is that the liner mold was off a bit. If it's only barely touching I would monitor it and not worry.

Re: 275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

Did the installer say anything after putting them on the car?

Got any pics of a full view from the side? Just wanted to see how much clearance between the top fender and wheel.

I had this issue as well with my 2014 Overland with the 275/55-20.......

It also was rear left. I put my hand I. There and realized the liner was not attached in the upper corner. The dealer replaced the liner and all is well!
