Re: What's the most tread for the 20" I can buy?

2mpg loss, although they look awesome and probably perform just as amazing, my measly 12-13 mpg would go down to 10-11? At 4 dollars a gallon that's roughly 16 dollars more a tank fill up too. Do you think they adversely effect mileage due to the larger size + more rubber weight or more so the aggressive thread design?

Re: What's the most tread for the 20" I can buy?

Most definitely the aggressive thread design , But the other plus side is the traction in the snow and off road , big difference ! well worth the extra 4 bucks!

Would 275/65 fit? I'd prefer an LT construction

Re: What's the most tread for the 20" I can buy?

That tire would be slightly taller ,and people here say it fits ,but I would highly recommend a leveling kit or a lift , imo your looking at some rubbing problems

No that's a 34" tall tire. I wouldn't go past a 32".

Much like yourself, I always felt the Forteras were a little skittish in the snow, and down right miserable in sand or soft dirt. The AT Nittos really seem to have helped.

Slow - Any chance you can post a few photos of your stock size Nittos?

285/55/20 Nitto Terra Grappler (32.3") too large for a non-QL WK2?
