OK thanks, but when you say they don't rub even under off-road articulation arent' you in a raised position?

Yes but when I tested the tires I made sure even under any circumstances it won't rub so I articulated till full compression on each wheel

I'm not rubbing yet, LOL. I'm deciding on 275/55/20 on a stock suspension so trying to determine what kind of flexing I'll have if I go off road, etc. I'll probably end up with the RRO level kit for the front, but the back will be stock and a few have said it's rubbing on the inner back fender.

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

do those of you with the 275/55/20's notice a smoother overall ride with the little extra meat on the sidewall?

I think it only happens when the rear liner is mis-formed.

A lot better ride and softer on the air springs so they don't have to over work..and on soft sand the extra meat on the tire helps when aired down

Great, thanks Aslantarek!

Decided on Michelin LTX M/S2's when the time comes, as 90% of my miles are highway. Love the look of an AT, but just doesn't make sense for me.

I've had LTX's on previous vehicles and they are so quiet and decent in the snow....far better than my Forteras anyway!

Should be a very nice upgrade in ride quality with the added sidewall meat...thanks again for your input!
