Official 275/55 20 All Terrain Tire Thread
 
During my search, I would have liked a single thread for info on all terrain tires in 275/55 20. So, maybe we can keep the options available, opinions and questions here for that size. I also put tread pics and links to their specs page.

Here are the four I considered:

Does a 32" tall tire require a lift?

Same size tires vary in size depending on tire brand, tread width, etc. 275/55 20 is just a few tenths shy of a 32". Again, depending in the individual tire. So to answer the question, lots of people run a 32" tire without a lift with no problems.

I'm running 275/55R20 Nokian Rotiiva AT (All Terrain), Extra Load 117T, all season tires.

These are an all-season/terrain tire with Snowflake on Mountain severe service emblem for superior snow/ice traction in winter months.

Yes, I have QL. The tire is a tight fit, but no rubbing. There's another thread that shows how close the tire is to the upper ball joint. I forgot the member, but they installed the Cooper Zeon LTZ. The AT3 is just as close, but I'm not worried about it. That bolt moves in relation to the rotor/wheel/tire, so it shouldn't make any contact with it. At full lock both ways, the tire is also close to the liner. Maybe 1/2" at full lock. I drove around after the install and never heard or felt any rubbing, so it looks to be a good fit. And it looks great, too. I will get pics up as soon as I take them.

Dollar if you could find that thread or member i would really appreciate it. I'm looking to put Zenons on mine and wanna see what they look like. I've searched for it but have come up with nothing. Sorry to be a pain...

It's a good thread. I'm getting Zeons too after I do skid plates and rock sliders. Here's the thread: http://www.jeepgarage.org/f109/the-new-tires-are-on-30014.html

What are people doing with the spare tire when you get these bigger tires? If you don't get a bigger spare, won't it mess up the AWD if you had to use it?

I was told no it wouldn't mess it up and to treat it like a donut tire and replace it as soon as possible. I have Nitto 275/55/20 with the factory 18 spare.

But I too would like to feel better about this if others would report back. :)
