New Tires....Nitto Terra Grapplers 275/55/20
 
5 Attachment(s)
HI i am back!!!
i placed the new tires, Nitto terra Grapplers 275/55/20 and i can only say one word...WOW!!! this tires are exactly what i wanted.
the are really big and i gained almost a inch in ground clearance which is exactly what i wanted.
If you see this from the front in Off Road 2 you will think it is a monstertruck!!!!!
they give me confidence when i go off road.
the only unconfortable part is that in normal ride height is one inch higher and it is tough to get out and get in, and i dont like to put park suspension every time i get out of the car. but thats the way it is....
here are some pictures....

Have them on my Armada. Love them. Wore like Iron. Got 75k out of them. Not as good as Michelin LTX AT I had on my ZJ in the snow however. Guess you're not too tall. I flop in easily and could go up another 6" in ride height no problem. LOL I'm 6'1".

i am 5-9....no rubbing in any suspension setting at all.
no nose (they are new), a little more comfortable because of the higher height or maybe placebo effect...but really glad that i changed them, the stock tires are garbage...
on the height it does bother me some...but my wife is pregnant and it does get more difficult for here...
in the future 2-3 years maybe go higher with 275/60/20.....lets see how everything goes...

Looks Bad ASS I am hoping to get some in the spring. Such a bang for the buck!! Are those scratches on the wheel?

Pregnant wives get a pass. Congrats on the baby! I'm womndering if the 275/60-20 will rub. That's what I wanted to do but I haven't heard of anyone doing it yet. Thx

I gave a set of 275-60-20s away just a few weeks ago off of my Ram, they are worlds differant in size compared to the stock size GC's.
Mine 275's were stock tires but still measured 33" x 11.25". seems like alot to throw on a stock GC without rubbing.

thanks FUNDGUY!!!
For the 275/60/20 i am sure they rub...only in park suspension....i dont think in normal would rub.
Yes those are scratches on the wheel!!! when hunting for the first time on the stock tire and i was slippery and got stock because of the tires and scratched them all up, main reason why i did change them.

How do you like the tires now that you've had them for a few days?

I'm hoping to get a set of them in the spring when. Take my snows off.

Do you have side steps? Just curious since you side your wife was pregnant. Wondering how those may or may not help her if you have em.
