One could argue that the wider stance could help or hinder in varying situations while off-roading

As far as added strain - others may chime in - but in my situation it does not concern me.

Cool, thanks for the info!

Re: Vechile at dealer, need opinions! - Larger tires and Air ride

So is it safe to say that a 2015 WK2 Summit running 275/55R20 KO2 will have a) rubbing issues in the PARK height, and b) throw error messages and need to go to the dealer to be calibrated?

Thanks

~32" diameter is about where you get into a need to physically modify to avoid rubbing. And the dealer cannot recalibrate for the larger tires. It's been said that it can be done if you have a Diablo tuner, however.

Re: Vechile at dealer, need opinions! - Larger tires and Air ride

I never use the parking height, so rubbing on my 2015 WK2 Summit running 275/55R20 KO2 is not a big concern, but the error messages on the newer WK2's seems like the issue. Can anyone confirm that this is an issue or that the error messages don't happen with this setup?

Also open to hearing thoughts on other wheel setups people have that they like.
