At +24 bs, which will fit better, 275/55 or 285/50? Will both?
The 285's will go out farther toward the fender and might not "tuck in" to the fender under compression.
The 275's will clear the fender better but have a larger diameter.
I'm not sure which will be a closer fit or rub.
Can anyone share who has had one of these set ups?
Planning on nitto G2's.
I have been going back and forth with the guys at Chief products about their 11 QL. They run 33x12.5x18s on the Mopar off-road wheels. Right now they have NO LIFT on the QL, but they did some trimming and slight mods on inner fenders. They also run a 1.5" spacer. They are planning on going to a 1.25" or even a 1" spacer. They told me they believe the 1.25" will be the sweet spot. Go to their website and look at the videos and pictures. They wheel it pretty hard.
After much back and forth I am almost certain I am going with the 275/60/20 Nitto g2. I am looking at factory 20s with a 1.25" Bora spacer. I also do have a controller on my QL and run it everyday at 1.25" above Normal Ride Hight. I don't notice any change at all in the ride. I also can go up to 2" above Normal Ride Height, but it does feel stiffer. It's not bad at all at 2" for me, I'd compare it to riding in a sports car.
