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!

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..

Answered in your separate thread. The answer is, in general, some items can be installed, but not the whole "package". See your other thread for more details.

All Overlands (at least around here) come with front tow hooks, ORAII package or not...

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

I have a overland 2012 with 20" and no trail rating. I've taken it on trails.. Will you? Just wondering, not trolling. 20's work off road with good rubber, but more likely to get damaged, and less cushion.

I do have 18" polished oem rims I put blizzaks on, so I know how they feel compared to 20". My 20's have terra grapplers. The 18" feel softer, smoother, a bit less responsive. Overall, a better ride for a SUV, but the blizzak "shaggy" tread helps too. Of course they are less precise than the 20's.

FWIW, I'm looking at a yukon next and may go with a tahoe z71 with 18's because I like more rubber, softer ride for an SUV. When do you ever get even close to the limit on road in a SUV? whereas, the z71 has WAY more off road ability than say a yukon denali (8" clearance!)...

Go either way. I put plates on myself (allowing me to put on undercoat on the upside of the plates to prevent rust) and front hooks. Neither was that hard, but it was more money than a set of 20" non-oem rims, I assume. Hard to believe OEM 20's would run 800$ used. I got like new 2012 polished oem 18's for 300 with tpms!. If you need winter tires anyway, consider rims and tires as a set too.

Honestly, if I were going to keep my JGC I'd trade my 20's even up for your 18's because I'd rather have 18's anyway. I can't be the only one thinking that. 18's are cheaper tires, and many more options to choose from, better off road, and (a touch) softer ride.

Can't believe GY (forteras were ok at best, not good in snow) are better than michelin either, my 2c...

Good luck.

I think the 2016 JGC is a good vehicle to buy, fwiw.
