Quick question. Tire size 20"

Ok, so I'm not to smart when it comes to tires.. So I would like to know if 275 55 r20 would fit the stock 20"rims on the 2011-2013 overland? I found some Pirelli Scorpion ATR's that I really like.. So, what are some tire sizes that can fit? Are there multiple sizes? Will 275/55/R20 fit? Thank you!

It will fit but it has a shorter side wall which will reduce the wheel diameter slightly and affect your mile per hour reading. Mph will be overstated - less distance per rotation. The tire/car should be slightly more responsive with the shorter side wall - less flex. I think it helps the look of the car even with larger wheel well opening.

It does help the look. It's a bigger tire all around and on our diameter rim, it gives the tire an extra big look, not stretched, more sidewall and more rim protection. So worth the 2mph difference.
