Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Thanks.

I found a you tube video of someone heading up Clear Hills track. Looks easy enough, but then I found this View topic - Day trip to Craigs Hut, Mansfield VIC | Australian 4WD Action and If that first pic is the track, then I had concerns for the tyres.

Should be okay if I take it easy.

Hey adamt, I saw a white Jet Edition on Ferntree Gully Rd one morning. Could it have been you?

Cheers,
Mike

Saw them in the flesh today on a new "bling bling" Colerado ute today with 20" mags. They are on my bucket list as soon as the Khumo's die.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I have had the Cooper Zeon LTZ for 3 weeks now, very happy with performance wet and dry, size increase to 275/55/20 is very noticable to look at as well as entry and exit from the Jeep as it sits higher. I have had no clearance issues although it is very close in some areas in front and rear. The more aggressive look these tyres give the Jeep, I think looks good and I have had several positive comments. Now the downside, not cheap paid $1700, speedo is out approx 4%, I have noticed increase in fuel use from 12L/100km to 13L/100km (Hemi), not as bad as it seems due to the now error in the speedo but still an increase. Very slight road hum, need to have the radio off and listen for it. Tyre choice is always a compromise and it depends on what is important to you. For me at this stage I will be replacing with the Coopers again.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

What did you do for the spare? Is it still the old rubber and slightly smaller, or did you get something matching?

Would something that size fit under the floor in the spare wheel well?

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I am still carring to original spare, I have read on this forum that the Coopers will fit in the wheel well with the storge baskets removed but the lid does not close flat due to the width of the tyre.

I have not looked into it but as the spare rim is 18 inch and there being a large choice of sizes available there should be a size that is close to the diameter of 275/55/20 Coopers in an off road or light truck, the trick being to get one narrow enough.

I carry a compressor so will inflate a slow leak pucnture ,worst case if I need to use the spare the diff should compensate for the faster rotation of the smaller wheel, to get me to a tyre service center.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

A 275/65/18 will get you to within 3 or 4mm of the diameter of a 275/55/20. Cooper AT3 is available as an LT construction in that size

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

The Tyre Professionals, Sunshine store in Melbourne. They were the cheapest of the 3 places I rang but not by much.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Can I ask why you went the 275/55/20. I notice Cooper sell the 275/45/20 but not understanding legal requirements I assume this tyre is 10mm lower profile? (20mm in diameter)? Is the Cooper 285/50/20 stretching things a bit with the wider tyre?

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I have the Cooper LTZ in 285/50/20 and no scrubbing at all. Speedo is now spot on accurate.

The 285/50 is closer in diameter to the stock size than the 275/55. They look great on the car!

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Cheers for the info. Based on the Coopers blog, they are apparantly a great all rounder and certainly look the part. Looks like this is the direction I will go in the next few months.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I couldn't be happier with them, I couldn't be unhappier with the shop that fitted them and gouged one of my rims.

GlennR, did you get my PM from earlier today?
