But beyond the tire itself and the looks of the rim, I really don't expect any noticeable felt difference.
I drove both side by side and for me, the 18's felt soft with more pitch and yaw over uneven pavement and a bit of a floaty ride on the highway than the 20's. Even with the 20's it could stand to be a bit tighter but I'll probably just wear out the Fortera's and see what's available then.

I agree. I love the shinny polished look of my 18" aluminum wheels!

Re: Overland with and w/o Offroad Adventure Package II

With the V8, ORA II gets you Quadra-Drive II, with an ELSD in the back. This was definitely worth the money for me.

Re: Overland with and w/o Offroad Adventure Package II

I think for 2013 you can add just ESLD/QD on the V8 overland, no need to deal with the 18 in wheels and the rest.... unless restricted like the later 2011 Limiteds.

Re: Overland with and w/o Offroad Adventure Package II

If only it would have come with the ELSD in the front too... that would make it a no brainer. I love my 2011 Overland QDII/QL but I really hate the traction control system.

Re: Overland with and w/o Offroad Adventure Package II

Don't know what will be available for MY14 and later on the Summit, but if the ordering process of the Offroad Package stays the same, I'll probably go for the package from the factory and order the standard 20" Summit-wheels and tires as accessory. Although it won't be cheap, having a second set of wheels and tires can't hurt..
