For winter roads, your Jeep Wrangler is well-equipped with all-terrain tires. But all-terrain tires aren’t the same thing as snow tires—and if you’re looking for the latter, you’ll have to swap out your Wrangler’s wheels. If you’re set on upgrading to snow tires this winter, here’s what to look for:
  • Tread depth: One of the main things separating snow tires from your Wrangler’s stock all-terrain tires is tread depth. Snow tires will have a deeper tread pattern for maximum traction on snow and ice.
  • Material: We all know that cold air can impact your tires, including the air pressure. That’s why the best snow tires are made from winter rubber, which has a higher silica content than what’s in regular tires, enabling them to retain elasticity even in seriously cold weather.
  • Cost: A new set of snow tires can cost anywhere from $150 to $700 or more—so it’s important to have your budget in mind before you start shopping.
Along with those basic considerations, you’ll also want to note your Wrangler’s model year and trim, as these are often important specs when finding the right tire size.
Need help narrowing down your search? We’d suggest taking a closer look at the following options:
Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Snow Tire: If you’re looking for a snow tire specifically designed to fit your Jeep, Goodyear is here to deliver. These Wrangler-made snow tires feature a zig-zagged tread pattern that provides firm traction in snowy conditions. Bridgestone Blizzak Snow Tires: Blizzaks are a popular snow tire among Jeep and non-Jeep drivers for their impressive grip performance on icy winter roads.
