My question was not directed at one person it was out of honest curiosity.

There are a lot of truck tires that ride better quieter and more fuel efficient than an A T Tire.

Tirerack.com has an option to put in your make and model etc. Then you can choose to go to 20” wheels. Then it will give you tires to choose from. Each tire has a description, plus buyers reviews.

It’s a personal choice thing but if you want a bling bling baller ride there are cars with better rides and nicer interiors.. a Jeep is an off-road vehicle and should be on 17s or max 18s to allow for a nice sidewalk to use for traction in sand and to mold around rocks and grip them... also the big Berger tires is just a more appropriate look for the vehicles use.. so basically I regret when other people put 20s on jeeps lol but respect your rig your ride and everyone likes what they like

Didn't really add to the discussion since you don't currently have, nor apparently ever have had 20s on your Jeep. Thanks for your opinion though.

I maintain that a Jeep on 20s, so long as you're on at least 35s or taller, is still far more capable off road than most. Bring that tire height to 37s and you have approximately the same sidewall to wheel ratio as a stock Rubicon on 33x17s. A JL so equipped, and with an appropriate lift, will likely tackle all but the harshest and most extreme trails. Not everyone wants to subject their ride to that type of trail in the first place.

Me, I just ordered a set 20in Hostile Predators and wrapping them with 37x12.50R20 Nitto Ridge Grapplers. I do plan to wheel pretty hard once I have my lift in, and I will report my findings here, either good or bad.

Just saying the 2 extra inches of sidewalk would help a lot with flex and grip, as well as ballooning out to protect rim from rocks, it’s also extra cushioning against washboarding, and the longer spikes of a 20” are more prone breakage.. I am not saying you can’t wheel them, just that it’s not really an optimal set up.. and for a steel axle vehicle, on stiffer shocks, it’s not an optimal for on road ride quality either.. if you like the look then you like the look, but for me it is something i would likely regret, since I regret going with 18s in my jku and plan to go with 17s on my jlu after learning those lessons.. I wheel my rig on 18s and my business partners on 17s both on 35s and I can feel a difference

Good post. You're for sure correct. To be seen is these factors will be enough to give me regret down the line. If I do, I'm screwed because this stuff is too expensive! I am likely stuck with them. I did consider 18s as a compromise, but was hella hard to find wheels and tires I liked as the its such a rare combo. Again, will report my findings back on this thread after I've lived with them awhile.
