Do you mean Grand Cherokee? What year? I have 04' GC got 40,000 tough miles on original Goodyear tire so I stuck with them although the price is up and Goodyear just came off strike.

Wow, this is wide open topic. Much like asking which religion is best.

I initially started to respond to this email describing that how you use the vehicle (pavement only, occasionaly offroad, serious offroad, snow, ice, rain, etc) would determine the type of tire that you would get. Then I started looking for some examples to point to. My first choice was BF Goodrich, then Goodyear, with no success.

The issue is the wheel size. If you have the 17" rims, your selection of tires is going to be limited to, what I would call, pavement tires. These tires will look like passenger or performance tires. Goodyear doesn't even have a Winter tire that will fit your vehicle in either the 235 or 245 width.

If your desire is something beyond a All Terrain tire you are going to have to change rims or do some searching. A 15" or 16" rim gives you a lot more choices, though without the bling effect of the 17" rim. Also a small lift of 2-4" would open up more tire choices.

As to the brand, pick your poison. All of the manufacturers have had poor or bad tires at some point.
