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.
The only one I could find is the BF Goodrich All-Terrain TA KO2 but it's an LT285/55R20 so it might be rather snug in the wheel well.

Yeah that's the tyre that I listed before, only it was in LT 275/55R20, the same size has been fitted by quite a few here.

It's likely to be the toughest 20 inch tyre that you can easily obtain in Australia and fit on the Jeep GC.

(note to self, elaborate more for clarity).

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

Hi everybody, so will a Bf goodrich / ALL TERRAIN TA KO2 / ALL TERRAIN TA KO2 285/55 R20 115S fit on a 2013 JGC without rubbing? Does anyone know? From reading threads seems it would be close.

285/50R20 WILL fit.

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I just ordered 4 BFG AT T/A K02 275/55R20LT 115S tires from Les Schwab in Coos Bay Oregon They don't sell BFG so had to order them in. Paid 313 per tire incl. Alignment, mount and balance. Not Cheap but not too many good choices for the 20" wheel, I almost tried an 18" wheel, but decided against it, tolerances too close with the brakes (= I'm chicken)

Re: 20" Tyre Thread

I just put 295/45r20 Toyo Proxes ST II's on my new 20x10 Goliath's. After 250 miles, I must say that I LOVE them...great on-road handling, much smoother ride than the Pirelli run-flats and got the 50k mile warranty (for less than $90)!! They are not as stiff in the corners, but I only have the psi @ 35 right now so I plan to bump that up to around 40 psi and see if that helps with stiffening up the sidewalls under hard cornering. I could not justify spending $2500/year on the Pirelli's since I only got 12k miles out of them (they maybe had 1-2k miles left; inside tread was almost completely shot). These weigh 5lbs lighter (per tire) than the Pirelli's, so I am getting 2 mpg's better on the highway (20 to over 22 mpg's with the Toyo's; combined driving has gone up 1 mpg as well). Love the tread pattern, side-wall is "ok" as far as aesthetics...but I am very happy with my purchase. I will update this thread as time goes along.

FYI I paid $1k for tires/mount & road-force balancing/50k tire warranty/nitrogen/re-learn TPMS/tire disposal AND 3yr/36k mile unlimited rotation and alignment!!! This was done through Big Brand Tire. Great deal IMO

08Hemi, nice looking tires as well. I'll post pics when I get 'em installed in a week or so. BTW, I really like my 5.7L Hemi, but I kinda wish I had the 6.4L Hemi...

Thank you! I had an 08 with the non-VVT 5.7L...it was a great engine...and yours is even better...but man the 6.4L is just insane. To have a 5k SUV go 0-60 in under 4.5 seconds (my PB is 4.3) just blows my mind...every time I drive it I forget that it's actually mine and that I don't have to give it back. Save up and you could find a low mileage 2014 SRT in the next year or so and get a great deal...I bought mine used with 4k miles
