Re: 275/60R20 & chains
Most people have seen issues with the chains rubbing on the spindle, not on the wheel well. That is why the rim diameter makes a difference (obviously running too large of a tire does as well). The 20" rim probably puts the spot where the chains mount closer to the spindle and that causes rubbing when the chains twist. So if you have to change rims anyway, I would get a set of studded MTs if you plan on doing serious winter offroad driving. I got my 33" x12.50" trail diggers for $230 per tire, and they have factory stud-mounting locations. I believe the firestone destination MTs also are made for studs.
