Will they fit? Goodyear Wrangler AT Adventure / 275275/65R18
 
Will these tires fit ok on a '14 JGC Overland? For over a month I've been trying to buy some Duratracs but they are not available around here anywhere, even called Goodyear but they said only wholesale tire centers have them in stock.

So, thinking about the Wrangler AT Adventure tires with Kevlar in a 275/65R18 size - I think they'll fit but haven't seen anyone with them in that size, the Duratracs there have been several members with them on with no issues.

Thanks - trying to find a good all terrain LT tire since it looks like the Duratracs aren't gonna happen.

Guess it depends on what size you are looking for....

TireRack has the 265/60R18 size in stock:
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....8WDT&tab=Sizes

275/65R18 is a larger diameter tire, 32.1 inches versus 30.5 inches for 265/60R18.
So if that is the OEM size on your Jeep, you would need to have the computer recalibrated for the larger tire.

I was just looking into the LT275/65R18 in the Adventure Kevlar, but besides being larger it's also 10lbs heavier per tire. I just don't care to sacrifice the mileage.

When the OEM Michelins wear out, I plan to go with the 265/60R18 Adventure Kevlar.

The Adventure (in the 265/60R18 size) also has a better tread wear number. 640 versus only 500 for the DuraTrac.

Thanks for the info, Todd. I like TireRack but worry if I buy my tires and wheels elsewhere, and go somewhere around here to get them installed - that the customer service may not be as good as if I was buying the tires from the shop. I plan to buy the MOPAR 18" offroad wheels. Also wondering what size lug nuts I need - I want to use black lugs, including a locking lug nut, when the tires are mounted. I think they are 14 mm lugs, but I can't remember.

What suspension are you running? I'm looking into 275/55/20, which has a slightly smaller OD and I know it is extremely tight and some have had to do at least the leveling lift in the front.

275/55/20 will fit without modifications. The one instance it didn't it was due to a factory defect on the inner wheel well arch liner. Leveling kit does nothing as the upper control arm bolt remains in the same place

What offset you running? I think the RRO level would give some more room in front during flexing.

Stock 20 inch wheels. Leveling kit will not provide more clearance with flex. The control arm and bolts will move with flexing. I get no rub at full lock. Search the forum. This topic had been covered multiple times

Do you have a pic from the side? I figured the leveling kit will give more room between tire and fender liner especially during flexing.

Im curious of this as well. I have a 2013 Overland with 18". I like the stock rims and just looking for an oversized AT tire that looks aggressive that wont rub on QL system.
