Choosing the Right Tires for Your Jeep


Tires can be one of the most important purchases you make for your Jeep. With so many different styles, sizes and treads available the choices can be a bit overwhelming. This is why it is important to know what kinds of demands you will be putting on the tires you choose. There are many tires that offer you all weather traction and others that were designed for basic city driving, but if you plan to use your Jeep for off roading, there are many more choices you will be faced with.


If you are like many Jeep drivers your primary use will be as a daily vehicle with the occasional trip to the woods. If this describes your Jeep you will want to choose a tire that was designed to perform well at high speeds but will also give you the traction and performance necessary for mild to moderate to off roading. All-Terrain tires would be adequate for this form of driving. All-Terrain tires are generally quiet and will perform well at high speeds related to highway driving. They also feature enough tread to be able to function on an off road trail.

If the primary use of your Jeep will be for off road use then you will need to choose tires that offer you the necessary amount of tread for the type of terrain you will be driving on. If your favorite type of off roading is done on mud or sand you will need tires that were designed for that type of driving. There are many different models available for this type of off roading, choose a model that will give you the best traction and control possible.

If you prefer snow or ice driving, then your choices will be limited to models designed primarily for that type of terrain. Many ice driving tires feature spikes that are meant to give the driver better traction and control. Snow tires are designed for use mainly on snowy terrain but can also be used in moderate icy conditions. Whichever model is right for your type of driving always buy the correct size of tire for your vehicle.

  1. HO, HO, HO! Guess what Santa is bringing me for Christmas? The little woman didn’t know I was awake when she ordered a set of tires for my Jeep, but I was. It’s been darned hard keeping it in too. I know she wants it to be a surprise so I’m going to have to contain it for a few more days. I’ve had 2 tires, one of them my spare, go bad beyond repair. Of course, they’re 4 years old too. This is like Christmases of old, I can hardly wait for Christmas morning.

  2. I want to put snow tires on my Jeep for off road but most states will not let you drive on the roads with them on. How the hell are we supposed to deal with that?
