What size of tire?

Thanks

Re: What size of tire?

I would think the wheel offset would dictate rubbing more than the tire size (within reason). That tire you selected is ~29.75" OD and I *believe* the stockers were around 29" to 29.5" tall, so diameter wise you should be alright.

Re: What size of tire?

My last set of tires were 265/65/R17, They had an OD of 30.6 inches and I had no rubbing issues. The 275/45/R20's you want are only 29.75 inches. With nearly a full inch less diameter, I don't think the 275's will rub even tho the tread is wider.

Re: What size of tire?

actually it might be different on yours sorry, some of the limited's had 16 inch rims. Look on this page to find the stock wheels and tire size.

Re: What size of tire?

well 265 45 20 is prolly the closest if you have stock 16 inch rims but I had stock 17 inch rims so its going to vary a little with different wj's. 255 45 20 was the closest on mine and I am very pleased with going with a tire that is closest to stock. I think you should get the closest to your stock size as well unless you find a tire you like alot in a different size that is within 3% of stock size.
