That is a load of bull. QD doesn't know what tires are on the car. When you are four-wheeling none of your tires have the same traction even if they are all the same......that is what QD does, it makes sure you have the best traction.

Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

My rims are the worst cuz they don't sit flush so I have to be extra careful not hitting them when turning

thanks guys.

so with the 20's you get a 8 inch wide rim; a 265 tire should protect the rim???

I have the viper reps in 20. i got a 255/50 ParadaSpecX and its not gonna save me on one of those bumper sized curbs but I have hit the tire and missed the rim once, I was very lucky.........thought a 265 would have it covered.

Have you looked for a good wheel repair shop. I use one here locally and he can make em' like new. Way cheaper than a new wheel. Just a thought.

Jeep2011, over 3/8" size difference in the tires QD can see different wheel speed rotation and transfer more torque to the bigger wheel because has less axel speed, or thinks has more traction. For long trips this is constant difference in torque distribution and wear on the vari-loks/ limited slip dif/transfer case/......This is why tires has to have as close as possible tire pressure, and rotate every 6K miles including full size spare. My "04 Overland comes with full size ,chrome, matching spare but looks like Chrysler is cutting cost and saving on spares. Here is thread from different forum regarding this:

Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

My wife can be "parking challenged" Our parking bays in the garage are sunken with raised concrete edge with a drain in the bay. That was why I ordered the Off Road package with the 18".

Believe me, it is a lot more painful when the wheel that is getting scratched is an aluminum/magnesium alloy at $3600 a set to replace. DAMHIK.

Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

Interesting re them providng a different brand spare!

Here in Australia, not sure about the US, but legally, each axle MUST have have the same brand and model of tire.
Meaning, you can have different brand front to rear, but not side to side.

If you have an accident with mis-matched tires side to side, your insurance can be made void.

not only brand benny but the spare is a diff size on the ones that get 20's. maybe others too.

joe schmoe posted about it. the MATH shows they are within like 1% or less on the height. but the spare was a 18 and 4 wheels are 20's.

and if it wasnt joe it was on here. im getting old but NOT THAT OLD

Re: Careful with the 20" wheels

Hmmmm yeah.

Vehicles with space savers throw another issue into the mix!

have an accident with one on, and the insurance company is within their rights to waive your claim if the wheel/tire could be seen as "at fault".

A really curly one since vehicles are provided with these space savers AND these same vehicle have passed all relevant Design Rules to be ok'd for sale!
