I feel the same way...I'm considering the bridgestone dueler H/L Alenza as they were great on my Tahoe and were still going strong at 75k miles when traded. I like the grapplers as well, but want move of a hwy tread given that's mainly what I drive.

Re: New 20" tires??

Has anyone put together a list of all the tire options available in the OEM 265/50/20 size? I am having a difficult time finding more than the limited choices on tirerack.

Do you have quadralift? Any loss of power due to the larger size? How did it affect the spedo? Change in MPG? I did not want to go away from the OEM size, but the great reviews for the Cooper Zions are beginning to change my mind!

I do not have quad lift. Tires are very nice on Hiway, no vibrations, just a little more sensetive to the small road bumps, tires are a 117 load rating XL. So far power delivery is the same, I have the Hemi. From a dead stop no issues, transmission shifts the same. as far as MPG have not checked that yet, will keep ya posted, i am very satisfied with this purchase. I had the Cooper Zeon on my 2010 Ram and liked them alot, I just wanted to try the Discoverer A/T3 . A/T3 are a nice looking tire also, a close resembelance to the Zeons.







No rubbing at all. no issues. tire shop had 43 psi in tires, so I let air out, now at 35 psi. Much better. I was averaging 16.1 MPG now the computer says 16.0 MPG. and I kinda hot dog my ride.

Re: New 20" tires??

I am considering the exact tire you put on your JEEP. I have a 2011 GC Overland. In reading around, looks like this size is in excess of 3% larger, which they don't recommend for speedo issues as well as Transfer case and Transmission probs. A couple questions: Are you aware if what I am saying is correct or BS? have you driven these tires in snow and ice? Thanks

Re: New 20" tires??

What tire did you choose? I am thinking it is time for me to change but I want to stay with the factory size.
