Howdy everybody. My '14 Grand Cherokee will be needing tires soon and I wanted to see what everybody likes or dislikes.
I have the 18 inchers that came with the Jeep and have almost 30K miles on them. I can probably go maybe 5,000 more miles if I am lucky...but with the Maine winter already here...might need tires sooner vs later.
I often tow a 5500 lb travel trailer in the summer months and like to explore off road from time to time. Longevity, good tread, low noise (if possible) and traction are what I am looking for.
I was looking at the GoodYear Wrangler All Terrain with Kevlar as my first choice and Yokohama Geolandar A/T-S for my second choice.
Anybody have any luck going thru Tire Rack.com? I am not a big fan of our local "auto parts" places that sell car parts first and tires on side. I tried Town Fair Tire once and will never go back to them.
Thanks for any input.

I purchased a set of Bridgstone Blizzack from Costco and do seasonal changes. My original tires are good for another year or two because I am working two sets. I have a 4x2 so the rear end is a little light, I fix this with a container of sand (about 120 pounds) and a shovel for just in case.

I'm on the same page as Casper. I too, have a winter set of blizzacks but from TIRE RACK. This will be winter #2 for the snows and keeps wear off the so called all season tires. There is absolutely no comparison with this jeep and the snow tire combo.

I just put this on, I got 40k from the stock tire and I was looking for a tire that would be good in snow and still ride nice.
Toyo CELSIUS CUV
VARIABLE-CONDITIONS TIRE
Celsius CUV is the revolutionary variable-conditions tire with better ice and snow traction than a typical all-season tire, and longer tread life than a winter tire.

I ended up going with the Good Year Wrangler A/T Adventure with Kevlar tires. 60K warranty. Aggressive tread...shall see how they do. Ride home this morning in the fresh (eight inches) of snow seemed like no problem. A little louder but that is ok. Stay tuned.
