Choosing the Best All Terrain Tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee

Finding the right tires for your vehicle isn’t always an easy proposition. You likely already know that there’s an insane amount of options out there. Because of that, Ultimate Rides likes to put together these guides to help our readers navigate this landscape. Speaking of navigating landscape, today we want to tell you all about the best all terrain tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee models. It’s long been a popular vehicle with drivers, but doesn’t usually get the same reputation for off-road excellence as other Jeep options. That is all about to change once you get the vehicle equipped with the right set of tires.

We want to begin by sharing a list featuring some of our very favorite choices with you. Picking out the right all terrain tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee drivers requires knowing exactly what you need, from measurements to following the tire code to see if it’s a good fit for your model. Following our list of recommendations, you’ll have access to our buying guide. There we offer tips that should help you out while shopping. Along with that, we’ll also help you learn how to read a tire code if you don’t know how. Without that, it can be very difficult to know exactly what kind of tires you’re getting. With all of that in mind, let us go ahead and get started!


1. Falken Wildpeak AT3W all_ Terrain Radial Tire 265/70R17 115T (ASIN – B01C53CFMU)

At Ultimate Rides, we often find ourselves installing custom tires for our customers. There’s no doubt that one of our very favorite sets of all terrain tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee drivers is the Falken Wildpeak AT3W. You’ll see it show up a couple of times on our list at different measurements. That is because it’s one of the absolute best options. We are of the opinion that while these tires may be a little noisy, they more than make up for it with their performance both on and off the road.

This tire features heat diffusing technology that helps it stand up to tough conditions and heavy use, as well as a 3D Canyon Sipe design that will make sure it lasts for the long haul even through plenty of use. The special layout of the tread blocks helps ensure that the vehicle has maximum stability no matter where you’re driving, and that’s something that everyone is going to love. Without a doubt, we think that the Falken Wildpeak AT3W is one of the most exciting options for your Grand Cherokee.

2. Westlake SL369 All-Terrain Radial Tire – 245/65R17 107S (ASIN – B01CIG0Y1I)

Our next tire comes to us from manufacturer Westlake, and it’s one of the best all terrain tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee you’ll find at this price. It offers excellent traction on any road conditions, and performs mighty well once you take it off-road too. The tread life of this tire is yet another area where it shines. If everything goes well, you should find that these tires will last you quite a bit of time. If we have any complaints to share concerning this tire, it would be that it’s performance in mud and other particularly rough off-road terrain could be better. However, if you’re looking for a primarily road tire that won’t be affected too bad if you take it off the road once in awhile, this is an excellent choice.

3. Travelstar EcoPath A/T All- Terrain Radial Tire-265/70R16 112T (ASIN – B07GXFMCB1)

Next up, we have yet another tire that customers seem to love. These tires are quiet, and offer great all-around performance. While they don’t excite us quite as much as something like that Falken Wildpeak, there is no doubt that these tires will be able to handle pretty much any tough situation you throw at them. They are also surprisingly quiet for a set of all terrain tires. That is somewhat surprising, as all terrain tires are known to be somewhat loud compared to most other kinds. If you’re looking for an affordable set of tires that will serve you well, go ahead and pick up some of these!

4. Falken Wildpeak AT3W all_ Terrain Radial Tire-245/70R17 114T (ASIN – B01C53DE9I)

In our number four position, we’ve got another option for those who want to check out the Falken Wildpeak tires. These tires are slightly smaller, so they could be closer to what you need. This is especially true if you don’t have a lift kit installed. As always, it’s important to double check that a set of given tires is going to fit your ride before you buy. However, if these are a good fit, you’ll find all the same awesome features we talked about in our number one slot. If you don’t mind tires that get a little loud (and just about all all terrain tires do), you’ll find stunning performance available from these tires.

All Terrain Tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee Buying Guide

We hope you were able to find a set of all terrain tires for your ride on our list today! However, if not, have no fear. We have some more advice we’d like to share that may prove helpful during your buying process. Here is what you want to look out for when shopping for all terrain tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs.

Unlike mud tires, which focus more on off-road performance, all terrain tires are meant to be a balance between on- and off-road. This will allow you to take your vehicle anywhere you want, and still get the kind of performance you need. Whether you’re driving on the highway, or through snow, sand or mud, you should be able to rely on these tires to get the job done. However, you need to make sure you get a quality set. The key thing to look out for while shopping is picking the right tread pattern.

Each tread pattern offers a different blend of performance. Some perform better on the road, while others benefit from being out in rough terrain. Check out product descriptions along with both professional customer reviews to find out which one works best for you. Remember: it’s important to know what you’re looking for before you go out and buy.

No matter what kind of vehicle you’re driving, if you plan to head into rough conditions, it pays to have a good set of all terrain tires.

Cracking the Tire Code

If you haven’t really paid too much attention to which tires you buy before, you may not yet know how to read a tire code. That’s perfectly okay, because we’re here to teach you! The best way to do this is to use an example code and explain each element of it. Let’s start with the all terrain tires for Jeep Grand Cherokee that we said are the best option out there: the Falken Wildpeak AT3W.

The code for this tire is: 265/70R17 115T.

To start out with, you’ll notice many tire codes begin with a letter, which isn’t found in the code we share. In your case, if you see a letter, you want it to be a P. This stands for Passenger tire, and it’s the kind of tire you’re going to want on your ride. The first numbers following that, in this case 265, represent the width of the tire in millimetres. Following the slash, the following number is the percentage of the height of the tire tread in relation to that width. In this example, the number is 70, meaning that the tire’s height is 70% of 265 mm.

R stands simply for radial, and the following number is the rim diameter code. Finally, the last number and letter combination represents the tire’s load index and speed symbol. The load index represents the weight that each tire can safely support, while the speed symbol alerts you to how fast the tires are meant to be driven. And that’s all!
