Method Standard 20x9 on Nitto Terra Grapplers G2

Hello Everyone,

Well it was time to replace the stock OEM wheels due to corrosion and leakage around the beads. Got basically 9 years out of stock 20" wheels.

After a lot of research I decided to upgrade to Method Standard Wheels in 20x9 size.
I needed new tires as well so went with Nitto Terra Grapplers G2 - 305/55R20 LT. Also installed 4 brand new TPMS sensors. Got everything from Discount Tire Direct.

Pictures attached and on my profile. So far I love the wheels! Awesome look with just enough lip. Just barely sticks out of the wheel wells and gives it a nice stance. I'm still evaluating the tires as Nitto also makes the EXACT same tire in P version (non-LT). The LT tire is 10lbs heavier each vs the non-LT. So far I only notice a difference in acceleration and deceleration which makes sense. I think I will stay with the LTs as Discount Tire wants $25/per tire extra for the non-LT version of the G2s.

The tires did rub on the inside of the mudflaps during hard turns. I removed all 4 mudflaps. I keep the new Nitto tires at 50psi now as it felt more nimble vs 40psi.

I went with Nitto LTs because the previous Cooper Zeon LTZs worked ok but I did notice a bit of roll and mushiness during a 5000 mile road trip last summer pulling a 7000lb trailer through the mountains in SD, WY, and CO. Even at 50psi the Coopers felt a little mushy with the tow weight. The rear Coopers wore out very quickly as well thanks to that mountain trip.

The Nitto LTs have a stronger sidewall and can be pumped up to 65psi.

I plan to keep the truck a long time and tow vehicles and more trailers with it. So far so good with the new wheel/tire setup.

Cadences, that tire and wheel combo compliments the clean, yet brute-like look of the Armada perfectly. Nicely done.
