Selecting Wheels & Tires
When it comes to picking out wheels and tires for your Jeep, there's hundreds of options, but we will help you with selecting the correct options based on how you're using the Jeep!

First let's review wheel bolt patterns:
2020+ Jeep Gladiator 5x5
2018+ Jeep Wrangler 5x5
07-18 Jeep Wrangler 5x5
97-06 Jeep Wrangler 5x4.5
87-95 Jeep Wrangler 5x4.5
41-86 Jeep MB & CJ 5x5.5
93-98 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5x4.5
99-04 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5x5
05-10 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5x5
11-19 Jeep Grand Cherokee 5x5

Note: 5x5 is the same as 5x127mm and 5x4.5 is the same as 5x114.3mm - just the metric conversion
For off-road use we recommend a 17.0" wheel versus an 18.0" or 20.0". A 17.0" wheel offers more side-wall flex, and reduces road-feedback. With a 17.0" wheel you can air down the tires for more off-road traction. For extreme off-road use, we recommend a bead-lock wheel. If the Jeep is used as a street-Jeep, 20.0" wheels will work, but expect a firmer ride quality and more feedback when driving over bumps.
Here's several popular wheel manufactures we recommend:

When it comes to selecting the tires for your Jeep, there are three types: all-terrain, hybrid-terrain and mud-terrain. All-terrain will be perfect for the Jeep that spends more time on the road, with light -off-road use. Hybrid tires are like a cross between an all-terrain and mud-terrain. For those who want a beefier look, but a smooth quiet ride. A mud-terrain is ideal for maximum off-road traction, but expect more road noise and reduced wear.
