Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

Are these considered the best performing all season tires for the WK2? I'm thinking of ordering these - but the 265 to avoid speedometer / rubbing issues.

Best is up to opinion but by far they are not the worst. If its your first at tire then they will be louder than normal tires but nothing major.

Yea it is my first tire. Looking for something with good handling ability but is also do well in all seasons (Midwest winters). Don't really take it off road much so that's a lesser concern.

Would these be a top choice for these needs? Any others I should also consider?

I replaced my Fortera's with the new Nitto Grappler G2 265 50R20 and they are amazing! With their aggressive lug pattern & deep siping, they have a great bite in the snow, a quiet ride, excellent traction off-road, and now offer a 50/65,000 mile treadwear warranty! A great all around AT tire!

I am comparing new TG's to the Fortera at the end of it's (pitiful) life, but yes they would be one of the top choices. You have to remember that the OEM tires on the GC are really just car tires. Just barely capable of holding up to the abuse a 5000 lb vehicle will put it through. The Nitto seem to have a stiffer sidewall as evidenced by the increase in load capacity. This makes the ride *slightly* harsher, but only by a tad. They are slightly louder at interstate speeds but I don't notice it unless I have the radio off/ turned way down. The lateral grip is impressive for an A/T tire. Again, sidewall stiffness helps this. Wet grip is good too. In the rain, I can no longer get the traction control to kick in while accelerating onto the freeway from a cloverleaf. Not that I drive fast. Not at all
We are limited to very few true A/T's in the stock size. This is probably the best overall. IMHO, if you are truly concerned about highway noise then there is not an A/T in the world that will satisfy you. Nitto does offer the CrossTek in the stock size and is a little more street oriented. There is also the Falken tire (I have no experience with them).
Bottom line, I would recommend the Nitto over any other tire in the OEM size. The slight increase in road noise and minute amount of harshness is heavily outweighed by the confidence in every condition.

Thanks for the great write up!

To follow up, from what I read switching to a larger tire typically requires lifting/spacers (especially for someone with QL like me), as well as issues with the speedo being off (even if the tire did fit), right?

I don't think I would be up for those concessions but if I am mistaken please let me know

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

I also have heaps of praise for these tires, I have a small lift now but on Std suspension I was running 275/55/20 with no running issues, speedo wise at 60-59,80-80,100-101,110-112 so as u can see makes the speedo almost spot on until u get above 100k an hour. Most cars are generally under valued in the speedo.

Sometimes it does. From what I had read here, the only rubbing has occurred in "park" mode when making a tight turn. Unless you go off-road with it there is little chance of rubbing in any other mode. Bear in mind that the bump stops and steering stops are for a tire that has a radius that is 3/4" less, and a width that is about 1/2" less. When you start articulating the suspension then further contact could happen.
The difference in the two sizes is going to change the speedo reading. Not by much. However, I have to ask why you would want to use a different size when the stock size is available?

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

I went up a size to give me more sidewall, we have of the best beaches in the world here in QLD so we want to drop the tyre pressures and get out there and enjoy them.

Ah, yep, if the sand is soft I can see that. You do get about 0.75 inches more wall out of the up size. Being upside down and all
