Looks great. Any difference in handling and road noise?

My thoughts exactly.
I like it how a set of rims changes the total apperance of the JGC.
I like the standard 20" very much, because of the " luxury SUV" looks.
This makes it look like a rough mud monster. Very nice

They are a little wider than the stock 265's and the tread pattern is very agressive so there is a hum, but nothing that will fatigue you on long hauls... As far as handling, I have not noticed too much of a difference... Maybe a little stiffer ride, due to the beefed up sidewalls on the duratracs.

Re: Chrome Class to Bad A$&... My new KMC XD778's on GY Duratrac's

this thing looks sick. Do you need a lift for those tires?? Im torn I dont know if I want to go with a set of 20 or 22 inch chromed out rims, or a set of jacked wheels/tires like these on my 2012 Chrokee Do you lose alot of mpg with tires that big?

I'm in Pa. also...have been tinting my vehicles for the last 15 years or so. Never had a problem w/state inspection. Just don't go darker than stock rear tint(I think it's around 18%).

Hey Metz: no lift needed (I don't know if it makes a difference, but I have a QL WK2). Lose about 2 mpg overall...
