Best Tire for Jeep Renegade

Michelin Defender T+H

An all-season tire that excels in all areas, the Michelin Defender T+H combines performance with safety, refinement and a long tread life. It’s a more expensive tire as a result, but it really is worth it.

Along with effective circumferential grooves that act to quickly dissipate standing water, the slots between tread blocks run laterally across the tire tread to further wick water away and deliver impressive grip in the wet. Dry performance isn’t quite sporty, but it is optimal for a compact utility vehicle and as a result it also offers incredibly long life with an 80,000 mile warranty.

In addition, it’s both incredibly quiet and also impressively comfortable. Overall the Defender T+H is an ideal tire for almost any small crossover.

 

Best Tire for Jeep Renegade (alternative)

Continental Control Contact Tour AS Plus

These Continentals compare well to the Michelins above with identical tire life warranties and similar performance, ride quality and low noise levels. Pricing is more attractive, however, wet weather grip is reduced somewhat both in handling and stopping capability.

It’s not a big gap, but we think the price difference makes the Michelins more attractive. If you disagree, save yourself $20 a tire and opt for the Continentals.

If you’re looking for more reasons to go with the Contis, we do love the brand’s additional warranty features that include free replacement for road hazard issues in the first 2/32-inch of tread wear, as well as three years of roadside assistance.

 

Best all-Terrain Tire for Jeep Renegade

Falken Wildpeak AT Trail

Falken Wildpeak AT Trail Review

There are more extreme all-terrain tires than the Falken Wildpeak AT Trail but we don’t think most Renegade owners want extreme off-road capability. That’s not to say you don’t want real off-road grip, because the Wildpeak AT Trail will still deliver. It’s best suited to dirt trails and gravel roads and not only offers impressive grip but true durability. By that we mean that even with regular use off-road these tires will hold up. So much so Falken offers a 65,000 mile warranty on them.

In addition to all that, they’re also better on-road than the vast majority of all-terrain tires, in terms of driving dynamics, wet weather grip and quietness.

And to top it all off they are certified for true winter use.

 

Best All-Season Tire for Jeep Renegade

Goodyear Assurance Weather Ready

Goodyear Assurance WeatherReady Review

If real all-season capability is what you’re after, then the Goodyear Assurance Weather Ready offers it in a road-focused all-season tire. Certified for true winter use it’s also impressively capable no matter the season.

Wet weather grip is impressive and Goodyear designed the tire to offer that level of performance no matter how old it is, with water evacuation channels that wear wider as they age. So as the tire loses some of its natural grip and tread depth, it’s able to maintain its wet weather performance.

Even summer performance on dry roads impresses thanks to tread blocks that lock together under hard cornering to make a more robust tread pattern.

Tire life is lower than some of the other options on this list and you’ll pay a premium for these tires as well. But if you want an all-season tire that grips in all seasons, this is your best bet.

 

Longest Lasting Tire for Jeep Renegade

Pirelli P4 Fourseasons Plus

With extra wide shoulder blocks and a thick center tread rib, this touring tire’s best feature is its long life. Although it does deliver excellently at offering a tire that tracks nicely on the highway and gives a luxurious ride.

Priced modestly, the 90,000 mile tread life warranty is truly impressive. The only down side to the tire is wet weather grip under braking, which is somewhat lacking compared to the rest of the tires on this list.

 

Best Budget Tire for Jeep Renegade

General Altimax RT43

If those top options on this list aren’t quite in your price range but you don’t want to just cheap out on a tire for your Renegade, then we definitely endorse the General Altimax RT43.

Offering above average qualities in all the key areas from handling to braking, it’s genuinely impressive for the low cost. Plus, it even comes with a 75,000 mile tread life warranty.

It’s not going to wow you in any one area, but it really is a fantastic value.

 

Cheapest Tire for Jeep Renegade

Ohtsu FP0612 AS

Super cheap. In fact, it’s almost half the price of our budget tire option, so don’t expect a lot from the Ohtsu FP0612 AS. OK, perhaps that’s not really fair. It’s performance on dry roads is actually quite impressive thanks to an extra wide center rib and shoulder tread blocks that put plenty of rubber on the ground. Wet weather grip trails off, however, it’s winter grip that really suffers and we’d only even think about recommending this tire if you live somewhere warm and dry.

A 40,000 mile tread life warranty is included.

 

Best Winter Tire for Jeep Renegade

Bridgestone Blizzak WS90

 

Bridgestone Blizzaks are some of the very best winter tires you can buy. That said, the only reason to pick something else is price. But for the Jeep Renegade the price fluctuation between winter tire brands is just a few dollars, so there’s no sense in saving just four bucks for inferior winter grip.

With a wide center rib, and two rows of exterior tread blocks that are packed together the Blizzak WS90 delivers excellent responsiveness and overall grip on snow covered roads.

Always a champ on snow, where Blizzaks compare less favorably to some rivals grip on cold or icy roads. To combat that the WS90 makes improvements over the oder WS80 version with 30% stiffer tread blocks for better grip and handling in those conditions, while 15% more edges make for superior grip in any condition.

You absolutely can’t go wrong with a set of Blizzaks.
