Great Tire Options for Your Jeep Wrangler

Friday, January 4, 2013 by Steve Huffman

The Jeep has been around for decades and is loved by many. It's easily one of the most modified vehicles on the road and has a very strong and enthusiastic group of owners. Many owners look to their tires as one of the modifications they want to make. Going with a larger and more aggressive tire is one of the most popular and easiest ways to customize your Jeep.

If you're looking for a tire that delivers traction in any direction on gravel roads and dirt trails, while also providing all-season versatility, take a look at tires that are good on and off the road. The first tire that comes to mind when I think of the Jeep is the BFGoodrich All -Terrain T/A KO. This tire seems like it's been around as long as the Jeep, and is easily the most popular tire for the Jeep. These two go together hand and hand, so to speak.

Are you looking to mix it up and go with more of a modern tire? Take a look at the Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac. This On-/Off-Road Commercial Traction tire is really aggressive and is awesome for some serious off-road use. Branded with the mountain/snowflake symbol, the tire meets the industry's severe snow service standards and can also accept optional metal studs to enhance ice traction.

Another very popular option is the General Grabber AT 2. This tire is fairly aggressive and provides great on- and off-road manners at a more cost-effective price. Its internal structure includes twin steel belts on top of a two-ply polyester cord body to combine strength and durability with a quiet ride.

What if you desire a super aggressive tire that can handle tough challenges such as muddy surfaces? Getting through mud is needed by most Jeep owners and tires in the Off-Road Maximum Traction category are the perfect option. 

Goodyear's Wrangler MT/R with Kevlar is designed to increase tire toughness when it conquers mud, crawls over rocks and explores trails, thus making it a top choice for rock climbers. The Kevlar helps stabilize the sidewalls when drivers return to the pavement for the ride home.

Another tire in the category worth considering is the BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain T/A KM2. This tire features open and deep lugs that will plow through any off-road condition. It features a cut- and chip-resistant sidewall compound and BFGoodrich's TriGard carcass (three-ply polyester construction) with sidewall cords that are up to 33 percent stronger than the previous Mud-Terrain T/A KM tire.

Firestone's Destination M/T uses UNI-T Technology to combine off-road traction with enhanced on-road capabilities. UNI-T is a combination of technologies that merge a comprehensive design with innovative manufacturing to enhance tire comfort, performance and wear.
