Anyone tried 285/60 with the Sahara 20" wheels? Same 11.22" width as Rubicon 285/70R17 (that we know fit) but half-inch more height at 33.46". They are listed as oversize options on discounttire.com. If 275/60 fit easily it seems these would also fit.

I am still waiting for my 4xe to be built, but have reached out to Discount Tire with some size questions. They say:

"the 275/60R-20, 275/65R-20 and 285/60R-20 are options that will not require modifications nor wheel spacers."
The 275/60 is an easy choice, but I'm really looking for more sidewall and strongly considering the other two options. The downside is extra weight and cost. For example, here are weight and current costs for the BFG KO2 and Goodyear UltraTerrain (a DiscountTire-only model):

Bridgestone Dueler H/T (stock tires)
275/55-R20/SL ~42 lbs

BFG All Terrain T/A KO2
LT275/55-R20/D 55.2 lbs $258
LT275/60-R20/D 55.29 lbs $279
LT275/65-R20/E 57.87 lbs $329
LT285/60-R20/D 54.34 lbs $394

Goodyear Wrangler UltraTerrain AT
275/55-R20/SL 47 lbs $213
275/60-R20/SL 46 lbs $228
LT275/65-R20/E 57 lbs $302
LT285/60-R20/D N/A size

There are several different tire photos of 275/60-R20 in the forums, but I'm still hoping to find photos of the 275/65-R20 and 285/65-R20 to help with my final decision.

Good luck!

I’m also interested in this question.
Got my 4xe Sahara about a month ago.
20” rims look nice around town, but certainly not appropriate for off-road/overlanding.
I want to go 285/70R17s, but am hoping to put off lifting for now. I am fairly certain I’ll be OK in terms of clearance in the wells, but am still wondering about suspension clearance. If anyone here has wisdom to share about this, I’d be obliged. Wondering if I could do Rubi take-offs (which is a far more economical option), or whether I’ll need less offset/more backspace to make sure there’s no rubbing when flexed.
Thanks!
I'd be careful on the Rubicon knockoffs as their suspensions are different than the Sahara.

I was thinking about something different. I don't want to negatively alter my electric range or speedometer reading. I'm fine with the height of the tires, but I'd like them to be flush with the fenders without using spacers. If my calculations are correct, going from stock to a 295 x 50 x 20 will change the sidewall from 151.25 to 147.5 and actually reduce the height of the tire by 0.3", while making it about 0.8" wider. If that's the case, the effect on range and speedo should be negligible, and maybe even a little better. Am I missing or overlooking something here? Thanks.

Just added some Falken Wildpeaks this week. Such a better ride and look! Currently set at 36 psi. Black fog light bezels on order.
Any feedback on the Falkens on road sound and performance?

Performance is great! I love them in the wet and we get lots here in the PNW. The road noise is pretty much the same as the factory tires. Jeep feels like it walks less with these on.
