Nope, no alignment issues. Latitude Tours, too. Run at recommended pressures listed on the driver front door jamb at that. Discount will put a new set on for me for about $500 (half price), but I'd rather not go with that tire again for fear that the same thing will happen in the next 20k miles. So I'm stepping up to new wheels & tires. Wanted to step up to 20's anyway.

I was wondering the same thing! Do the 18inch wheels take more of a toll on the tires?? I have the 20's and so far the tires appear to be lasting.

Different tires between the 18's and 20's. Michelin latitude Tours vs. Goodyear Forteras.

I'm upgrading to 275/55R20 Nitto Terra Grapplers. More tread, and a better rubber compound. have the Trail Grapplers on my JK and love them!

Nope. In hind sight I'm still happy I went the with the gas V6. Plenty of power for my use. For a high mileage driver the lifetime warranty was big selling point. Being able to keep my maintenance costs under control beyond 100k miles is an advantage over saving on fuel cost.
