What tire size for 20 x 9 replica wheels?

I'm thinking about ordering a set of Chrome 20 x 9 replica wheels for my 2007 Grand Cherokee SRT8. I got a quote from Factory Reproductions on a wheel/tire package with 275/45/20 tires, but will that sidewall make my Jeep much higher than the stock height? What are others using for tires on these wheels? I'd appreciate any input/advice.

if you are working on a budget, get the 255-45-20s wrapped with a nitto 420s. ive had mine on for over 30k miles and they still have alot of tread left.

Same here. I had the Nitto's for 4 years now and also have a lot of tread left. However I only use them in the summer. I swap out to my stock tires for winter.

In the winter I run 20x9 replicas with 275/40R20s all the way around.
