Talking Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

I pulled the trigger today and placed an order with Discount Tire for Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20 and trading in the factory Goodyear Fortera HL with 700+ miles on it. It should be here the end of next week.


UPDATE: Pictures added

I really like the Nitto's. Gives it a mean look and rides really well. Also looks like it has an addition inch or more on height. A little info on the Speedometer. I ran a GPS app before the new tires and after with really no difference. So adjustments isn't needed.

$482 for the Goodyear tires and they lower the price on the Nitto's. I ended up going to two discount tire places before I got the price I was looking for. However, after wheeling and dealing come to find out that Nitto is out of stock on the 275/55/20 and no ETA at this time. So I had to pay extra for delivery from someone else that they could get it from. oh well..

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

Interested in this. Will you be able to have the speedometer adjusted for the larger tires?

I would think so. I won't know until I get the tires. I plan on using a GPS App while driving to compare the MPH give or take a mile. I'll let you know when I know.

I went to the dealership today and asked the service mgr to re-calibrate my speedo to accomodate my 275/55/20 tires. He told me it can NOT be done on the WK2 since the 2011 rolled out. Ironically, when I had my previous '11 WK2 and asked my previous service mgr to do it, he confirmed that the adjustment had been made for me after a service I had done for something else. The guy I spoke with today said the other service mgr must have been lying because it just can't be done on the newer models. Anyone confirm or deny this... please??
All that said, I love my Terra Grapplers. Enjoy yours!

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

My guess is until a tuner comes out for the WK2 you wont' be able to recalibrate. Use a tire size calculator to make sure your new set up is within 3% of the stock set up. I use 1010tire.com http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecal...r-snt-emty-str

Man you can't beat that deal. This Friday and Saturday you get a $100 a Visa gift card with the purchase of 4 tires.

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

Well, at least they make this tire in stock size too. I'd like a little larger tire, but not enough to deal with the speedo being slightly off.

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

You've got me wanting a set. I might do 285/45/22's though.

Re: Nitto Terra Grappler 275/55/20

I considered looking for a 285 also. But the 275 comes awfully close to the upper ball joint bolt (i believe that's what it is) with the stock wheel offset. Less than a fingers width. I don't know if the 285 will clear it. I know the SRT comes with a 295 but the wheels must have a different offset or different set up.
