So thinking the 285/50/r20 will give me almost as much height about 0.5 less plus some width which I ussually like the look of, but am a little concerned about such a wide tire on an 8" rim.. and wondering if people have put the nitto g2 in that size on this vehicle and how they liked it.
I'm running the KO2s in this size with zero rubbing in all height setting except park/entry. Even then, it's at full lock coming out of the driveway before it has a chance to raise to NRH.
They do have more road noise than the stock Goodyears. It doesn't bother me and you get used to it very quickly. Of course this is a subjective issue.
Something else to note is the KO2s are a LT tire and have some additional heft. This can be felt on acceleration. I know the Nitto's come in a P rated tire, which might weigh less. Just something else to consider.
I might go with the Nitto's next time around, just for comparison. However, I love the KO2s. Excellent off-road grip and superior water evacuation over the hydroplane prone Goodyears. With all the rain here in Atlanta lately, they have been well worth the investment.
