Biggest tires?

I am currently running 265/50/20 Nitto Terra Grapplers on my 2012 JGC Overland with QL but I was curious if I could get away with 275/55/20 BFG KO2's without any rubbing even at the lowest QL setting? Is anyone else running this set up?

Re: Biggest tires?

OEM tires are 30.6" in diameter. "Generally", 32" is the limit without issues, but it's very much dependent on the tire width and tread at the edges.

And if you upsize, don't forget you also have to upsize your spare diameter, too...all four tires in use must be the same diameter within a "proverbial hair" due to the 4x4 drivetrain.
