New 20" tires Recommendations?
 
I like the profile of the stock forterra tires on my summit. My next set of tires I would like more aggressive tread as I use my summit off road when hunting. Any suggestions of similar tire with more aggressive tread?

Nitto Terra Grapplers are a sick all terrain tire with an aggressive tread pattern that remain quiet.

These tires are quieter than the stock Fortera HL's.

Those look great!

Safe to assume no problems with the slightly bigger tire than stock?

Does the WK2 speedometer automatically adjust for the larger tire size (which can be checked by the GPS on the Nav unit) ? With that size, 60 mph would actually be going 62.9 mph acording to a tire size calculator (based on the larger radius tire)

Says there not available for the Jeep's on their website.

Also I'm interested too, I have yet to experience a winter with my Fortera's but I'm hoping to get a new set of tires in December.

Look at the first line under 20" it says 265/50/20 if I am not mistaken and that is the exact factory size for an Overland.

I have one week with the nitro terra graplers, all I can say is that they look much better than any OEM tire and noise is not a problem.

I'll try to post some pictures of mine today.

No problems with these even though the stocks are 265/50R20? The Goodyear website says they won't fit.
