What is the largest tire I can get on a WK2 Overland w/ 20" rims and QL? I really like the 20" rims and want to keep them but it is my understanding with the Quadra Lift you cannot lift it. With that being said, is there an All terrain tire I can fit on there? And does it matter that it won't be the same size as my fake-me-out full size spare? What is coming on the vehichle is a 265-55-20 Goodyear Foterra tire. I really want something like the 275-50-20 Firestone Destination A/T... Any options? I can't find anything so far that would fit.

But will they fit without lifting the car? Also, what do you do about not being able to have the same size spare? Can you use a spare that is so different in size? I have talked to two tire guys and they both say stay with what it comes with. I really don't like the street tire look. I am more of an offroad person and would prefer the 275-55's. I have to give the dealer my answer by morning. I really appreciate any and all input.

Does that have a lift on it?

Do you know what type of tire that is?

I too would love to know the "widest" 20" tire that will fit without rubbing when lowered all the way?

It is recommended your spare be the same circumference as your other tires.

They should. I believe the WK2 in the picture has quadra lift and is in OR I mode in the pic.

If I am not too late...

The pic has 275/55r20s on it, it is a QL Jeep, not sure which setting it is pictured in. Those tires measure 31.91 x 10.83. The owner indicated no issues (rubbing) when driving in the "normal" setting, not sure about park mode though.

The factory tires measure 30.52" x 10.43" (regardless of 17", 18" or 20" rim). The factory spare is the same OD (30.52") but narrower (9.65"). I think on mine it is a 245/65r18.

Lots of off-road looking tires in a 275/55r20 - Pirelli Scorpions, BFG Rugged Trail, Yokohama Geolander, Nitto's, etc.

You are right, you cannot permanently lift the QL - there are people talking about "kits" to "trick" the airbag system but nothing yet.

Also, you should have as close to the same OD in your spare as possible. Other threads exist that discuss this and it appears that with removing the bins you can fit a 32" OD tire in the spare wheel well. However, the width is where problems arise.

Will 295/45 fit? That the same size as the srt8 and I don't see any reason why they would not fit?

Im running 285/50s on Srt8 reps with no rub on QL. I think there are some people running the same size on the oem 20s with no issue.

Anyone running 285 45 22's w/o QL
 
I saw a you tube link with a set of 285 45 22s Terra Grapplers mounted on 2012 WK2. My question is if anyone knows if this size will fit w/o rubbing on a Laredo X. I was thinking of running my SRT reps year round...(currently running 265 40 22's in the summer)... but instead of the Nitto Grapplers I was thinking Blizzaks DM-V1's for the Chicago winter. Any ideas?? I vinyl wrapped my stock 18's in satin black and mounted those for the season...but don't really like the look. (Small)
