New wheels & tires

Went with matte black 20x9 wheels and 276/65R20 KO2s. Too early to tell what I think about them but here are some quick iPhone pics

Mopar rock rails coming next and possibly some red caliper covers.

Re: New wheels & tires

Looks good!! I've been debating between the wrangler Duratracs or the KO2 myself. What's the outside diameter 32"? What lift do you have ?

Thanks.
I looked at the Duratracs, Nitto's, and these KO2s. I chose these mainly because they had an aggressive sidewall but weren't too aggressive in the tread. They ride great and aren't near as loud as I was expecting. They are 275/55R20
It's a 2015 Overland so it has the QuadraLift suspension. It the pics above its in Off Road 1 position.

Re: New wheels & tires

Any issues rubbing? What's the back spacing / offset of the wheels?

Re: New wheels & tires

I think you have your size wrong since a 275/65/r20 would be a 34" tire

Re: New wheels & tires

Sorry. Typo. 275/55R20.
I have not had to trim anything yet. There is some slight rubbing if I turn the wheel all the way in the enrty/exit mode. So I just turned the auto lower off and I don't have to worry about it. It is close to the wheel well liner in the normal ride mode so it may run if I hit a big bump with the wheel turned all the way but no issues yet. As for the wheel offset, I think they are +34.

Re: New wheels & tires

Thanks for the info ... I'm doing a RRO 2.5 lift with 18x9 wheels and 275/65/r18 next week but still haven't decided on a tire or an offset or +18 or +35

Re: New wheels & tires

OP-
do you think a different offset would allow more clearance?
Thanks


dtcl-
I was wondering if you have decided on the offset and if you know if either will allow larger tire to squeeze in th wheel well?
Thanks
