275/65/18 Nokian Rotiiva

Has anyone put Nokian Rotiiva on a WK2 without rubbing? I'm running GY SA 265/65/18s and would like to stay with a bigger then stock size so figured I would ask here.

Re: 275/65/18 Nokian Rotiiva

Rotiiva A/T is an excellent all terrain/all weather tire. Why not stick with the stock size and not have to worry about rubbing or speedo error? There is little difference from the sizes you mention.

I'd like another inch of ground clearance.

Re: 275/65/18 Nokian Rotiiva

Greetings,


Many here are running with various other manufactures with a 275. I believe you should be good. With the 18's, you will be better navigating thru the snow.

Happy Ski trails.

Best for now.

Here is a picture of my jeep with the new tires. I am a little disappointed that there isn't any rim protection but besides that they have been like glue on wet roads since I put them on.
