re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Quick question MOFSTEEL on the tires.

I went for 285/50 R20 Cooper Discoverer H/T on my Overland. Tires fit perfectly and are a great addition, just wondering what you did with the spare being a different size? I'm thinking of swapping out the stock 245/65 R18 with a 255/65 R18 to get the same rolling diameter to prevent damage to the 4x4 system in the event I need to use it... what solution did you implement, or are you just going without functioning a spare?

No solution for the winter 285/50/R20 Blizzaks but the OEM spare is close enough in diameter to the 295/45R20 i run in the summer to be safe.
My other issue is the spare wont fit over the front Brembo's but still may fit over the rears. I'll need to test fit. Basically im banking on never having tire issues.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

I have the exact same Jeep. Got it in July of 14. Tints check, finally replacing the stock tires and I was doing some searching and am between the Grappler's, Discover H/T Plus and those Zeon's you had. Your sizing of the tire helped a ton along with the rest of this thread! How did you feel about the Zeon's over the life of them? Wear evenly, ride and life/miles of tires?
I'll be do that Taillight bezel black out that you did. I am not sure why they didn't finish that detail with the Altitude but otherwise the ALT is a huge leap forward for jeep. Overall, I love the tank. Thanks for your help!

If you're just going to run the Cooper's in the summer they're a great tire.
Good on dry, wet, and light off-road conditions. If you plan to run these tires all year long id say go for the Terra Grapplers. The Cooper's turned into roller skates during a light snow fall.

Freshly powder coated OEM SRT Goliath wheels. Thanks to Paul @ Crown Customs & Coatings. I should have them mounted by Monday. The difference will be minimal but I wanted to try these out with the General Grabber UHP's. The reps+tires+tpms will be up for local sale only. (Chicago area)

Those are the same wheels he has on now. Expect I believe now he's going with originals instead of replicas.

re: SilverBillet's JGC Altitude OEM + Build thread

Correct... Im selling one of my sets of reproduction 20x9 ET35 wheels.
These are OEM 20x10 wheels so the difference will be minimal.

gsommerp ..in my post that you quoted above you'll see the tires ill be using.
