Tire Help

I've been laboring over what tires to put on my Overland. Non- QL suspension, and I've decided on the 275/55/20. My local tire shop put one of the Nitto Crosstek's on for me to see, and while I liked the look more than my stock Goodyears, it looked a little too aggressive for my purpose. So I've decided to go with the Michelin LTX MS2 based on all the reviews I've seen. Most of my time will be spent on the highway, so ride and minimal noise are very important to me... although I want a tire that fills out the well more and looks good. Does anybody have a picture of the LTX-MS2 on their JGC and/or opinion on this choice? Thanks.

Re: Tire Help

How did you get an Overland without Quadra-Lift?

Re: Tire Help

Didn't know you could get Overland without QL.

Re: Tire Help

I think the QL was not ready for the early builds, and they built some Overlands without QL early and discounted the price some. Its not an option now.

Thanks. Now I remember that was the case.

I'd love to see pics with the wider tires if you get time to post them.

Re: Tire Help

Guess I'm one of the few that doesn't have QL on my Overland, but for my needs it's fine. Pulled the trigger on the Michelins tonight and in my opinion they look awesome. I'll need to drive some more before giving a full assessment on handeling, but they feel great so far. I'll take some pics later this week and post them.
