The tires on factory-made vehicles are not designed for off-road use. They are made for paved surfaces and should not be used off them because of their lighter construction, tread pattern, and size. Jeep Wrangler tires from ExtremeTerrain are extra tough and come in a wide assortment of Jeep tires sizes. Their larger and deeper treads give them the traction and durability they need to overcome unforgiving off-road surfaces. Specialty Jeep tires may not be suitable for highway use, as most of tires are designed specifically for extreme off-road racing and exploration. Pick up a pair of lockers to make sure you’re getting the most out of your tires and don’t forget about your brakes, they may save you from sliding off a cliff someday.
There are a variety of Jeep Wrangler tires to choose from, including off-road dedicated mudding tires, all-terrain tires, as well as sand tires. All-terrains are the most common for day to day driving, but are still capable of light off-roading. If you’re going for a complete build for you rig, consider a 2.5in to 4in lift kit so you can fit Jeep Wrangler 35 inch tires. Not tall enough, you say? Fitting big Jeep tires requires taller lifts, and additional drivetrain work to keep everything aligned.

The best tires for your Jeep Wrangler is highly dependent on how you plan on using your rig. The best Jeep tires for a dedicated off-roader will have thick side lugs, and deep grooves so when the tire’s aired down it has the maximum amount of grip on slick stone. A Jeep that rarely sees dirt would be best served by all-terrain tires. They appear like a normal car tire, but the treads are designed for light off-road use. If you’re not sure how often you’ll be off-road, it might be worth investing in a second set of wheels and tires. Keep your regular street tires for most days, but you have the option to swap to mud tires or winter tires should you need to.
