Looking for something beefier than the continentals on it today and I'd like something 'bigger'...I put winters on so I'm looking for something good on dirt roads, light off roading but also rainy highways...The latter seems to be the Achilles of these beefy tires.

Anyway, How big can the sidewall get before I run into rubbing issues? I think stock are 55? Thanks

I just installed the conti terrain contact a/ATs to replace the stock conti’s and really like them and how they made the Yukon look a little tougher. I was looking to go bigger with a different A/T but decided to go stock size. They are definitely worth checking out if you want to go stock size.

Thanks. Looks good. Why didn’t you go bigger with the Conti? What was the other one you were considering?

whats the biggest sidewall size you
Can get without running into rubbing issues?

IDK, stayed with stock size. BFG offers the 20" wheel KO2 in eight sizes, these four should work but recommend you verify:

275-55-20 LR D 31.8"
285-55-20 LR D 32.3"
305-55-20 LR E 33.2"
275-60-20 LR D 32.9"

I was originally set on a LT285/55r20. I like the cooper ATPs I have on my Silverado but there was nothing that would work. Then I was looking at the KO2s, cooper LTZ and many others. I suffer from analysis paralysis and can research to death and not buy anything. I finally came across the new Continental’s but they didn’t have the size I was looking for. After further research of different tires I came back to these and decided on these without ever seeing the tire I person. Now I had to choose between the 275/60R20 or stock 275/55r20. Since this rig is a daily driver and a frequent long trip vehicle I decided to go stock size. I ordered the tires at America’s Tire and when they arrived I had them installed without seeing what they looked like. When I went to pick it up and saw it in the parking lot, I was very pleased at the look of these tires. It really changed the look of the Yukon. My pics don’t do these tire justice.

I recommend the 33x12.5R22 Nitto Ridge Grapplers (JennaBear inspired me). I just replaced my 20 inch Continentals that I did not like whatsoever (too soft, bouncy l, and were worn by 28,000 Miles). Anyhow, time will tell on the wear, but they have a much better tread rating and have great reviews. So far, smooth and real quiet.
