What Are Your Tire Needs?

Jeep vehicles are known for transferring seamlessly between the trails and the streets. Where and how you drive your Jeep should inform your next tire purchase. A few questions worth considering before your order your tires include:

  • Are these for function or style? Some Jeep owners love the look of larger, more rugged tires even if they don’t go off-roading. If you are looking for your tires to be a style upgrade make sure they are well-rated for street driving.
  • Do these tires need to perform well off-road and on the pavement? If your Jeep is a weekend warrior only used for off-roading, then you will want to focus your search specifically on off-roading tires. On the other hand, if you are looking for a more versatile option that can switch between the trails and streets near Memphis you will need to consider a tire that will perform well on plain pavement too.
  • What kind of terrain will you be off-roading on? Off-roading tires are not created equally. Some are designed for specific types of terrain, so check the terrain ratings before making a final decision. The most common types of terrain ratings to look at, besides Street, are Sand, Ice, Snow, Mud, and Heavy Rock.

Jeep Tire Sizes

If you are looking for larger tires for your Jeep there are multiple tire sizes you can choose from. Depending on the look or ground clearance you are going for, your options include:

  • 33-inch tires
  • 35-inch tires
  • 37-inch tires
  • 38-inch tires
  • 40-inch tires

Just make sure when choosing a tire upgrade that your vehicle has enough room for them to turn smoothly without rubbing. If not, and you are set on the tire size, you will have to consider making additional modifications.
