Best Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Continental Cross Contact LX 25

Offering a mileage warranty that’s 5,000 miles longer than the Pirellis below, the Continental Cross Contact LX 25 performs admirably in all key areas.

The tread design features significant siping and segmentation to offer more biting edges and to help grip in inclement weather. Shoulder tread blocks are also joined together to add stability to the tire in cornering, making sure it enhances the cornering capabilities of a taller SUV.

Pricing is on the lower side for a tire of this capability. Plus, we enjoy Continental’s added warranty benefits like the one year (or first 2/32-inch tread wear) road hazard warranty and the complimentary road size assistance for a damaged tire (which lasts for up to three years).

Pirelli Scorpion Strada All Season

 

Pirelli Cinturato Strada All Season Review

The Pirelli Scorpion Strada All Season features a unified center tread rib for more engaging initial turn in, and reinforced shoulder blocks that are joined to the ones next to them for impressive overall cornering performance.

Braking performance in the wet and dry are first rate.

These tires are quite similar to the Scorpion Verde All Season AS tire that comes equipped on the Grand Cherokee from the factory but are approximately 20 percent cheaper and come with a 65,000 mile tread life warranty. The Scorpion Verde All Season AS tires don’t come with any warranty at all, so we have a hard time recommending them, however, if you already have them on your Jeep and are impressed with the milage we wouldn’t hesitate to buy another set.

 

Best All Terrain Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Goodyear Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar

Offered as a factory option on the Grand Cherokee the Wrangler All Terrain Adventure with Kevlar is as durable as it is capable and if you’re planning to go off-roading, you don’t want to skimp in either of those areas. The tread base is manufactured with a layer of Kevlar to resist punctures out on the trail. A reinforced sidewall is also a part of the protection package. Overall grip is quite good and on-road driving dynamics and civility are also surprising.

A 60,000 mile warranty is included and pricing is about average.

 

Best All Terrain Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee (Alternative)

Falken Wildpeak AT Trail

Falken Wildpeak AT Trail Review

As an alternative to the Goodyear’s the Falken Wildpeak AT Trail is another all-terrain tire available for the Grand Cherokee but with a rather different focus. It’s not as durable or as capable in extreme scenarios, but doesn’t try to be. Instead this tire is made for light off-roading such as dirt or gravel trails. It is designed to hold up under regular use there and comes with an impressively long (for an all-terrain tire) 65,000 mile warranty.

With its softer focus the tread pattern was designed for superior on-road performance and it’s more civilized than the vast majority of AT tires. Plus, we love that it’s also rated for true winer driving, so these all-terrain tires work for any climate.

 

Best Budget Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Falken Pro G5 CSV

It doesn’t really wow us in any particular area, but the Falken Pro G5 CSV is an extremely well-balanced tire. Designed specifically for modern crossovers and SUVs it quiet and comfortable while at the same time offering solid handling characteristics and decent all-weather grip. A 60,000 mile warranty is about average, while the pricing makes this tire stand out.

 

Cheapest Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Sentury UHPT

A performance all-season tire, the Sentury UHPT is the most affordable tire available for the Grand Cherokee. It offers surprisingly good handling dynamics and braking capability, though this really only applies to the dry. Wet weather performance drops off quite a bit and while this is technicall an all-season it’s winter and cold-weather performance is far below expectations.

A 40,000 mile warranty is certainly on the low end. Pricing can make this hard to pass up for some drivers though. We’d just make sure you have other tires for the winter months.

 

Best Winter Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2

You can’t waste Jeep’s legendary grip, so to make sure you get the most out of the Gand Cherokee in winter conditions the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV2 is our top choice. It’s a solid performer on icy roads or in cold temperatures, but where it really shines is on snow-covered roads. Here it’s extra-wide center tread section and plentiful amount of sipes lets the snow stick to it with ease and delivers fantastic traction. The on-snow confidence is impressive, and the tire even delivers top-notch braking and cornering capability on snow.

 

Longest Lasting Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus

One of the better all-season tires available for the Grand Cherokee the Bridgestone Dueler HL Alenza Plus can’t be beat when it comes to offering the most mileage. At 80,000 miles it has a longer warranty than any other tire for this vehicle.

It’s extra wide center ribs makes for an extremely well-planed highway ride and impressive turn-in response, while the segmented tread blocks and siping deliver some of the best all-weather capability available.

On the pricier side, for the added milage you’ll get out of these tires, they’re definitely worth it.

 

Best Summer Tire for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV

If you’re looking for maximum summer grip for your Grand Cherokee then there’a really only one proper choice, the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 SUV. Offering true sports car grip for big SUVs this tire has numerous interior tread ribs to deliver impressive turn-in response, paired with ultra wide shoulder blocks that sit closely to an additional uninterrupted section of tread for not only amazing lateral grip, but consistent traction too.

A 20,000 mile tread life warranty isn’t a lot, but these are serious performance tires that are seriously sticky.
