Sorry but the tires you are looking at in the pictures are not the GY Forteras! They are the Nitto Terra Grapplers in the exact same size as the OEM's; and they are 20".

Good to know, I was kinda half kidding since I just got a limited with 20" and the Forteras and can't wait to get rid of them. That video has made me rethink going to a bigger size. Do you have the Nittos on your Summit?

Yes I have the Nittos on my Summit, they are the same size as the factory tires. If you look at some of my pictures close you can tell they are the Nittos.

Why did you choose the 285 over the 275? I thought the width was a problem with the brakes. Spacer?

no spacers needed, 285 gives you inch taller inch wider no tire rub at all works great

Thanks, looks great! Surprised this size isn't more popular (most seem to go to the 275/55) I guess for the added height. I know the 285 is closer to stock and won't affect speedo as much.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee OFF ROAD (video)

I was a really big fan of my cooper discoverer on my ZJ...
But there was a german tire test in 2007 i guess and the cooper failed! The tyre bursts!

But it was the best snowtire i've ever had.
