OK, let's be logical about this. You know you will be way better off with road tires from the point of view of cost, fuel economy, the environment, handling, safety, comfort and the law. BORING! You want those AT tyres don't you? Well, go get them! Life is too short.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

You could also go the Pirelli ATR a very quite All terrain that performs well off-road and is as close to a HT as u would get.

Agreed, but if I was going to do it with 20 inch tyres i'd be choosing the LT construction version like these (and not much / any else in 20 inch size that can fit on our cars?) vs say the Cooper LTZ Zeons in passenger(XL) construction.

LT tyres always seems so much stronger.

They don't "seem" so much stronger, they are. They are intended to flex less and carry much higher tyre pressures so as to be stable and carry higher loads. Although, paradoxically, at a given tyre pressure, they have a lower load rating than passenger tyres. This is because the stiffer sidewalls generate more heat than the flexible walls on passenger tyres.

Agree with all of this.

Is there any other LT tyres available (in Australia) in 20 inch that will fit on the Jeep GC? The MT above are passenger spec.
