I now have them fitted. No scrubbing. Speedo out slightly (too fast) but just new to be cautious of speed from now on.
Picture at standard height

Cheers
Ben

If you have a way to measure actual speed, I would be interested in what your speedo reads at 60mph.

The 275/55-20s calculate to be 31.9" tall, and I have a set of Nitto '421s that size on my '13 Limited with QL. They don't rub anywhere, any time. I drive my GC around town in Sport mode which lowers it about a half-inch.

I use a Garmin GPS receiver which indicates speed to the tenth of an MPH. Using that and comparing the speedo' and GPS readings at about 2-dozen speeds, my speedometer is 3.1% slow. That means it indicates about 58MPH at actual 60MPH.

Thanks. That's exactly what I was looking for. On my soon to be delivered CRD, I'd rather the tire be at factory spec diameter or a little larger. Your data tells me all I need to know.

With the tyres I have in aero mode at 110 kmh my Tom Tom GPS reads 113 kmh. So I am slightly 3 kmh too fast
