New 20" tires Recommendations?

I like the profile of the stock forterra tires on my summit. My next set of tires I would like more aggressive tread as I use my summit off road when hunting. Any suggestions of similar tire with more aggressive tread?

Nitto Terra Grapplers are a sick all terrain tire with an aggressive tread pattern that remain quiet.

275/55/20 Goodyear Silentarmor








These tires are quieter than the stock Fortera HL's.

Re: New 20" tires Recommendations?

Those look great!

Safe to assume no problems with the slightly bigger tire than stock?

Re: New 20" tires Recommendations?

Does the WK2 speedometer automatically adjust for the larger tire size (which can be checked by the GPS on the Nav unit) ? With that size, 60 mph would actually be going 62.9 mph acording to a tire size calculator (based on the larger radius tire)

Says there not available for the Jeep's on their website.

Also I'm interested too, I have yet to experience a winter with my Fortera's but I'm hoping to get a new set of tires in December.

Look at the first line under 20" it says 265/50/20 if I am not mistaken and that is the exact factory size for an Overland.

Re: New 20" tires Recommendations?

I have one week with the nitro terra graplers, all I can say is that they look much better than any OEM tire and noise is not a problem.

I'll try to post some pictures of mine today.

Re: New 20" tires Recommendations?

No problems with these even though the stocks are 265/50R20? The Goodyear website says they won't fit.

Re: New 20" tires Recommendations?

Many members are running 275/55/20's without issues.
