That tire has a profile of almost 1.75 inches taller. That's alot of difference. Speedo is going to be off by alot, not to mention other issues your going to have.

It will be off by about 3mph at 65mph.

I am not sure what "other issues" you are referring to though.

Re: tires.. 275/55r20

I think you'll end up needing to do a little trimming to the inner felt liner. You may also need to take a grinder to the inner fender as referenced in this thread The Quest to Run 305/60/18 Tires with No Lift.

I think they will fit if your comfortable taking those steps. I just mounted a 275/65-18's which are almost the same size diamater and width. I had rubbing on the inner fender when near full lock and had to follow the steps in the thread linked above. Might want to check with other guys about rubbing on the control arm. I have aftermarket wheels with a 0 offset so that wasn't a concern. My wheels created rubbing on the front fender when turning but I think with your stock wheels and offset that wouldn't be an issue.

If you do a search you'll find several guys running 275/55R20 size tires on OEM 20" wheels with no issuses at all! Nittos, Bridgestone Revos, Blizzacks...
