One of the most appealing parts of owning a Jeep is getting to accessorize it and getting it to look just like you imagined it! Whether it was to copy something you saw in a Four Wheeler magazine or on the street.
I, like many other Jeep enthusiasts, have made my way into the ‘trap’ of owning and customizing a 4×4. There are an endless amount of modifications and upgrades you can make to your vehicles but one of the first ones many people make is changing the factory rubber!
I explored all the different options for more than just my beloved Wranglers to find out what tires are the best for each Jeep model!
In this article, I share about how expensive tires are for them all and which ones I consider the best for each vehicle. And at the end, I share some great advice on what to look for when trying to determine what makes the tires as expensive as they are!
Tire Prices By Jeep Model
Jeep Wrangler Tire Price
Jeep Wrangler Tires will range from $120-$500+ each, depending on the brand and quality.
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most diverse vehicles out there, being used for both in-city driving and intense off-road use.
The tire pricing will be a reflection of what you are using the Jeep for. If you are just looking for a cool daily driver, then a basic all-season tire will treat you well and be on the lower end of the pricing spectrum.
If you are using it for off-road purposes then your tires will need to be higher-performing, which are more costly.
The best all-around tire for the Jeep Wrangler would be a good All-Season tire by Cooper. The average owner of a Jeep Wrangler is not doing extreme off-roading and simply wants something that does well in poor road conditions and is stylish.
These tires are affordable, work well in poor conditions, and can be sized for whatever Jeep Rims you decide to put on your machine!
Jeep Cherokee tire prices range anywhere from $100-$350+
Tires for a Jeep Cherokee typically aren’t as expensive as a highly customizable Wrangler, but depending on what you are looking for can get quite expensive. Another factor to consider for Cherokees is what size of a rim it has.
Common wheel sizes are 15, 17, and 18”, with 17” being the most common on newer models. If you are looking at summer tires, they will be less expensive than a studded winter tire, which can run up to $300+ for really good ones.
The Falken Wildpeak Tires are a perfect tire to use on a Cherokee. Backed by a 65,000-mile warranty and great traction year-round, these tires will work in any conditions you throw at them.
Jeep Grand Cherokee
Jeep Grand Cherokee Tires will range from $150-$350 with High-Performance tires being more expensive.
A Grand Cherokee is a loved family vehicle that boasts excellent traction and safety. Unlike the Wrangler, these Grand Cherokees run a constant 4×4 system that excels at providing traction and does not need high-performing tires unless you are doing some off-roading with them. Then you will want to look at tires for extreme terrain.
Many of the Jeep Grand Cherokees have 20” rims now, but the tire pricing is similar to the other Jeep models.
The best tire for a Grand Cherokee would have to be a Mastercraft Courser. These tires are very affordable and offer fantastic year-round traction. They don’t have much road noise and will fit onto your new Jeep’s factory rims. The only complaint about them is that they don’t have white lettering on them!
Jeep Compass tires will range between $150-$350, depending on size and what the purpose is.
A new Jeep Compass comes with rims that range from 16” to 19” depending on the model. Aside from that, the prices of them mainly depend on what purpose they are going to be for.
Snow tires will be more expensive than a set of solid all-season tires. The tires mentioned below can handle snow, ice and off-road conditions quite well!
So you’ll end up like this guy…
These Starfire Solarus All-Season tires suit this vehicle very well! Providing excellent traction when combined with the 4×4 system.
These ensure great year-round performance by the Compass and at a fair price. To top it off they also come with a 50,000-mile warranty that will have you covered for a few years’ worth of driving!
Gladiators have a wide price range, from $150 a tire to $500+ per tire.
When considering tires for a Gladiator, there are a few things to check for. Factory tire size changes with each model, from 31.5” tires to 35” tires. The larger your tire is, the more expensive they are; The type of tire will also cause variation in the price of The Tires.
The Atturo Trail Blade tires are a perfect in-between for a Jeep Gladiator Rubicon. Large 35” that provides great daily driving traction and fits in-side the factory tire spacing without a lift.
Factors That Affect The Price Of Jeep Tires
Type Of Tire
Depending on the kind of tire you are looking for, the price will be reflected by that. A basic all-terrain tire will be fairly inexpensive since it doesn’t require intense grooves or require to be a high-ply tire.
Winter tires and Mud Terrain tires are more expensive, they have tire spreads that are specially designed to get traction and filter out the mud and snow. They are typically a higher ply tire than a basic all-season tire as well.
Normally we see smaller tires, like for the Cherokees or compasses being less expensive than the large tires that are put on a Jeep Wrangler or Gladiator for off-road use.
This concept is pretty simple, the bigger the tire means there’s more rubber which equals a more expensive tire to manufacture, store and ship.
Summing It Up
Jeep tires tend to range in the $150-350 range with some exceptions. Those exceptions are for the Wrangler and Gladiator tires that are much larger or designed for intense off-road use.
The tires I recommended above are the best all-around tires that I could find for each of the Jeep models. They will ensure great traction all year round and won’t break the bank to put on either!
The type of tire and size of it are your two major pricing factors (aside from branding) and also depends on how long your tires last. If you burn through rubber quickly, then a cheaper tire might be more cost-effective for you!
