Okay, just making sure.

That's what I'm a little worried about though, whenever I size up and get new tires, that there may be a chance of some rubbing because the 275/55 size is so big. So I'm thinking 285/50/20 will be the best option and is a bit smaller, still larger than stock, definitely wider.

Yep, I've been debating this for 4 months now since I got my 2014 Limited. Should I go with the 275 to maximize height or go with the 285 that is closer to stock. I know most say the 275 will fit on standard suspension but I don't know if I'll like the look if it comes to close to the front fender because of the the rack (rake of course) LOL. The leveling kit will take care of that. I also debated just getting a second set of rims in 18" or going with a stock size AT tire.

Re: Largest size that will fit on Overland with stock 20" rims

I can assure you 285/50 will not rub for those without QL.
Not saying they won't work for those with QL but I don't have it so I can't say.

I had 285/50r20 Cooper Zeon LTZ's put on 20 miles after I bought my Atltitude and have experienced no rubbing in normal everyday driving.

I'm more concerned if there will be issues when off-road as opposed to everyday driving. The 285/50 is wider than the 275 so I'd imagine it comes slightly closer to the stud/ball joint. This is a pic from another thread showing how close it is with the 275.

That is true that it is closer, actually 5 mm (0.2'') closer to suspension/brakes components based on the wheel/tire calculator, but it's also shorter by 16mm, so that needs to be taken into account too. But if Mofsteel hasn't had any problems with it, then it won't be any closer to the ball joint while off roading, since that piece moves with the tire.

With a leveling kit do you think you could get the 275/60r20???
