tire question

I am getting srt replica's 20x9 all around. I have talked to people with these rims on a wj with 275/45/20 tires and they say they rub or only touch when the steering wheel is near full lock, like pulling into a parking spot. My questions are if I got a 255/45/20 tire would this help the touching at full lock? Also can I use summer tire or peformance tires on my jeep grand cherokee or is that only for cars? I plan on putting my stock tires on during the winter which are all season tires for suvs.thanks guys

Re: tire question

get some really cool summer tires if your gonna use the stock wheels for the winter. I have never heard of the 275-45 rubbing....but I like the look of the 255-45. But remember...your tire choices are smaller with the 255-45.

check out the tirerack.com for some cool lower price tires. I remember seeing some General grabbers for like $105 each......theres also some Yokohama's for like $130 each
