Nice tires! Is the original spare tire the same diameter as these tires? If not, will 275/55/20 tire fit in the spare tire well?

275/55/20 are perfect for QL vehicles on almost every tire brand you can think of. For those that don't have to worry about aero/park mode you can go wider, just not taller without wheel spacers.

Well...they say any product is only as good as its weakest link, and since tires connect the vehicle to the road...doesn't matter how good of brakes or traction control systems you may have, if the tires have poor performance, so will the vehicle. Given all the negative reviews about the OEM Goodyears that come stock, thought it best to start out with a better performing set of tires. The delivery of the Hankook's was delayed a week, so dealer told us to run the Goodyears for a week, then come back & have them all swapped out. So we did in fact get a chance to "sample" the Goodyears...but their lackluster performance, made us want to get them swapped out quickly. So...here we are now running the Hankook's & it's nearly a night & day difference...SOOO much better than the Goodyears. :)

Funny thing is...while they were being swapped out...dealer's Service Mgr pulled me aside & told me that was probably the best & smartest change I could've made to the new Jeep...said he was surprised more buyers weren't doing it upon taking delivery.

Best part is...our cost??...was $0.00!!!...it was negotiated in the beginning of working the deal with the dealer.

Any 1 month+ update? Any issues with the 275/55/20 size? How are the tires doing?

Hey MichiganFan - I wanted to change my stock GY Fortera 265's to the Hankook 275's but was told they won't fit on the 8" wide 20" rims on my 2012 Overland...?
do you have the same 8" wide rim and the 275's fit??

Thanks
