Who runs Wrangler Silent Armor on their WK2s?

According to the specs on Tire Rack's website, the Silent Armors are a hair larger in diameter and width than the other more popular tires seen on here (Cooper Zeon LTZs, Firestone Destination A/T, Bridgestone Revos, etc)

I know the clearances with 275/55/20 on the WK2 with QL are tight as is, however it looks like the Silent Armor is my tire of choice. So I'm looking for anyone that has these on their QL WK2s- any rubbing? And pics would be appreciated!

Also- I've made up my mind for the most part; but your reviews would also be helpful in confirming my decision or having me reconsider.

I put 275/55/20 GY Silent Armor on the wife's Overland, they just rub the felt wheel well when you turn lock to lock. You'd never have the wheels turned that much at any speed so it isn't a problem. I have trouble posting pics so if you want pm me your email and Ill send you one.

I replaced the horrible stock tires with the GY Silent Armors in stock size and they are great.

Finally got to try them out in Joshua Tree state park and had no problems at all.

Have 14,000km on a set of stock size tires and like them. Have a good mix of hwy, gravel as well as a bit of mud, sand and snow. They appear to be wearing evenly provide decent traction and are nice and quiet on the road.

I did take them off and put a set of dedicated winter tires (Goodyear Ultra Grip Ice WRT. Best priced higher end tire I could find locally) on though as our area tends to get very icy during the winter and found them a bit to slick in these conditions. I always run winters though so am used to a bit of extra traction.
