275/55/20. Plenty of threads about them. Do a search.

I just put the Nitto Terra Grapplers on in the stock P265/50/20 size. Other than the price (Owwie!) I have been deliriously happy with them so far. Not too bad on the noise at freeway speed, and terrific in the snow and slush.

Much like yourself, I always felt the Forteras were a little skittish in the snow, and down right miserable in sand or soft dirt. The AT Nittos really seem to have helped.

Slow - I've seen a lot of photos of the bigger size Nittos. You have any photos of the stock size Nittos to post?

Bart - you going to post some pictures once you bolt your spacers on? Your Jeep is looking pretty good. I'm betting the spacers will really make the stance look good.

So 275/55/20 is the largest size tire that will fit on a QL equipped car with no rubbing at all heights???

Im assuming it wouldnt matter if the tire is a AT type offroad tire correct?

That's not bad really. I'm down to 16.5 average with my V6 after adding 285/50/20 Yokohamas. I drive 40 miles interstate and 3 city daily.
