GL550 Off road tire fitment

Looking to get 20" wheels with KO2 Tires for part time desert use. Take off the 21" and put on these for our monthly trek.
Will LT275/55R20 fit in the wheelwell?

Post a pic on here when you do put them on. I'm curious what our GL's look like when a set of those KO's on!

As requested ​​​​​​​



275/55r20 filled up the wheel well . No rubbing at all


Snow performance is amazing still. I had same tires on my truck before and they saved me multiple times.

I was gonna say would be nice to pick up an older 4Runner for desert or off-road use. However, I actually like how the KO2's look on the GL.

Those rims with the tire package look awesome. Where did you get them, and what size / offset. would be a great winter/snow tire package for a few month's.

For the asks above, I got the tires and rims from a local shop in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. The shop name is EZ Auto (905) 709-9969. You can call the shop and ask about KO2 tires on MB GL.

Tires are BFgoodrich All Terrain T/A KO2 at size 275/55r20 one of the best AT tires ever invented. These sets I had on my F150 truck before and it was amazing in snow so I wanted for my GL in winter time.

Rim im not too sure it should be GTS performance rims at size of 20x9.5. Perfect fit for GL or Audi RS7.

I also got inquired about the roof basket. It is Thule Canyon XT with extension sitting on top of Thule Aeroblafe crossbar. No special modification is needed.

They look good! Do you have any pics of how the tires fit in the wheel wells when the suspension is flexed? Like when crossing a culvert or washed out section of road?

With those wheels, the truck looks a lot like a Land Cruiser.
