Re: 285 50/r20

What are your requirements for the tire? What type of driving?

Re: 285 50/r20

Street and a little off-road but not major at all. I think I want cooper ltz.

Trying to figure out if I can fit 275/60/20 if I get the leveling kit

Re: 285 50/r20

The Cooper Zeon LTZ is a really nice tire. I had them in 275/55R20. They handled really well, nice ride, and looked great. I did get complaints from my wife about the hum at highway speeds though. I switched to the Michelin LTX MS2 in the same size. Not exactly an off road tire, but does just fine on the dirt and sand trails I need to travel. And they are just about silent, which keeps the wife, and me much happier.

I don't know about the 275/60. If you bend the pinch welds back and secure the felt, it might work. I'm actually waiting to hear some reviews on the yet to be released Nitto TerraGrappler G2. If they are as quiet as they are supposed to be, I may try them out. Maybe in a 305/60R18...Not sure if it will fit, but just might try.

LTZ


MS2

Re: 285 50/r20

If it helps, I'm running 275/55r20 on a 2012 Jeep Gr Cherokee with QTII. They fit and I haven't noticed any rubbing. They come close to the inside wheel well when you crank the wheel all the way over. There is still a gap in between the tire and the bolt on the suspension arm.

I haven't done any offloading with these tires yet as I have only had them for a couple of days.

Re: 285 50/r20

I'm running Nitto TG's in 275/55R20 and no rubbing at all BUT I have the leveling kit. Without the leveling kit it tore out the retaining plug on the fender flare during the test fit at Discount Tire.

Love these as well. I primarily drive on the road but I visit job sites that are rough grade lots and different elevations and even as close as they are with the leveling kit, I haven't experienced any rubbing that I can tell.

Here's what they look like...
