Best tires to use on 20 inch rims sport, had blow out!!
 
First time poster, long time reader lol
I have a 2011 4x4 sport
Had a blow out with OEM goodyear wrangler HP 275/60/20 rear passenger tire, One other tire looks a little beat, the other two are ok. I have 33,500 miles on it, rotated every 6-8000 miles.
First question what is a good replacement?
second, would you recommend just replacing two tires and maybe waiting till later. I still need change the plugs lol

Great truck but definitely some issues, had a tranny leak that I brought back 12 times

any info is greatly appreciated!!!

Go to the wheels and tire section....and read up....there's a million choices out there....depends on your driving style too.

HMMmmmmmmmmmmm

wonder how a passenger side rear tire wears out well before the others
:LOL:

i know, no LSD !!!

No lol, The truck is extremely well kept, tires rotated every 6000. The looks ok, it does seem that these goodyears wore out a little quick. I am not HARD DRIVER, NO OFF ROADING, the truck is babied

Now i see online alot of statements that the tires are nt that good and most of tire places i called seemed to shy away from them, even goodyear recommended the sr a instead

If your planning on keep the truck stock but want a new tire get a good all terrain (AT) tire in the same size as stock.

I dont do 4x4ing, or off road, I do alot of highway and city driving,, I am in north east so we do get snow though lol

I'd look at Michelin A/T2's. Or Hankook Dynapro ATM's for a more aggressive tire. I have Cooper Zeon LTZ's, and I'll be lucky to get 30k out of em.

not crazy about the stock goodyears on my 2011 sport, but i hear good things about goodyear duratracs. very popular on the jeep forums. i will be giving them a close look when i need new tires.

I was going to go with the continental lx20, I found a place that they were under 900 out the door. Everywhere else wanted 1100. Funny thing is If i went with the goodyear sr-a they were more money lol


Ill let you know how they are. Really shocked all that money for this truck and you get s.... tires , 30,000 miles and they are toast lol

I also have the cooper zeons and love the looks of them. Decently aggressive looking for an all terrain, ride nice and are quiet. Only have about 5000km's on them though so I can't vouch for wear
