Re: 305-50-20...will it fit on SRT Goliath rim 20x9

When considering if it will fit on a given wheel, the authoritative answer will be the mfg's specs for that specific tire. They will give the range that the tire can safely be mounted on.

305-50-20...will it fit on SRT Goliath rim 20x9

Um, specs for a 305/50r20 General Grabber AT2 show it to be 32"x 12.4" and fit on rims from 8.5" - 11" wide.

I have no idea if this will fit well based on the proposed wheels, but lots of us are...

Re: 20" Nitto Terra Grapplers

Optimally, you'd run chains front and rear. That said, check the clearance of the control arm in the front.

I purchased spacers so I'd have more space between the control arm and tire/chains...

Re: 2014 Capless Fuel Filler Cap

I've found some gas stations give me issues and some do not.

I've started to learn which ones to avoid.

You might try a different (brand) station.

Re: Best snow driving techniques and modes

FWIW, you could have gotten another ELSD if you had opted for QD over QT. In that case you would have had a diff mid and rear and only the front would be open.

Best 20" tires for street use?

I'll vouch for the Continental DWS. Best all season I've encountered. I think the max size is still a bit smaller than the stock tires, but if you are OK with that, they are great tires.

The Bridgestone Dueler Revo AT2 that I went with has two options around 32" for a 20" wheel. Basically same overall size as mine but in a 20" wheel.

I think consensus is 32" is about as high as you can go. The specs on mine say 32.1".

The reason you want something with "mechanical" feedback is so you can operate it without taking eyes off the road.

If brand new, sometimes tires will still have mold release on them which can make them very slippery in wet.
