Unlike most of the cars in its segment, the Jeep Cherokee Trail hawk is unlike most of the cars in its segment, and as a Jeep it comes with plenty more features.
When it comes to off-roading capability, it’s head and shoulders above the competition, even though it might not be the leader in terms of things like cargo space or fuel economy. Of course, such things shouldn’t be expected from a Jeep.
The truth is, we suspect most drivers aren’t going to be hard-core off-roaders, which is why we’ve put together a list of tires that are made for everyday driving rather than off-road applications. (Although some are not, so keep reading since there will be some surprises).
A wide variety of Jeep Cherokee Trail hawk trim levels are available, as well as a wide selection of tire sizes – depending on whether you are interested in a more basic model, something with real off-road capability or something more high-end. There are a number of tires on this list that should all be suitable for the sizes listed above.
It should be noted that every tire listed will fit the Cherokee Latitude, Limited, Sport, Trail hawk, Altitude, Overland, and 75th Anniversary models. As you can see, we have provided our recommendations for the best tires for each size of tire that we offer.
The thought of having to buy tires online is stressful to say the least, but that doesn’t have to be the case. We at Simple Tire are committed to making tire selection as simple as possible so that you can choose the right tires for your Jeep Cherokee Trail hawk.
Here we will determine the tire size for your Jeep Cherokee Trail hawk, once you select the model, we will ask for a few more details such as your year and trim level.
On the right, we show you tires that fit your vehicle and are the best matches based on the vehicle’s performance characteristics, but you can also look for the best value tires, tires that are on sale or as part of a promo, tires with the longest tread life, and much more.
Michelin Premier LTX
There’s no question that Michelin Premier LTX is designed as a touring tire for SUVs and crossovers, but the Michelin Premier LTX is almost as fast as it is comfortable. Okay, so we might be exaggerating a bit here, but you get the point – the Premier LTX is surprisingly good to drive.
The first feature is that it is more responsive than any other tire in its category, which will improve the overall performance and handling of any Cherokee.
Also, it provides excellent levels of grip on dry surfaces, as well as adequate traction for all models of the Cherokee . The vehicle has one of the best brakes in its category, as well as high-speed stability.
All of this is made possible by the Total Performance Technology, which improves performance as well as lowers fuel consumption at the same time.
Thanks to the Expanding Rain Grooves all around the circumference and Emerging Grooves across the shoulders, the Premier LTX is also the best touring tire in the rain. Also, it is one of the quietest and most comfortable tires in this category that you can get, maybe more than any other tire in this category.
Pirelli Scorpion Verde All-Season Plus
Pirelli tires are at the forefront when it comes to high quality tires, thanks to their blend of performance, durability, and comfort. As a perfect example of this, the Scorpion Verde All-Season Plus is definitely a great product.
The Scorpion Verde’s pleasantly responsive handling in corners is made possible by Pirelli’s know-how in the racing industry.
It improves the Cherokee’s already good handling abilities further with its improved handling.
It is because of the silica enriched tread compound which has been molded into an asymmetric tread pattern that Pirelli tires provide the driver not only with excellent high-speed stability, but also with high levels of grip and traction, and an astoundingly high braking performance.
Having four circumferential grooves helps in the wet conditions as well. Not only does the Scorpion Verde handle hydroplaning very well, it can also be used on damp pavements.
Overall, the tread pattern of this tire makes it the safest tire you can have in the wet and dry conditions. The number of Sipes on this model increased even further, and we are able to confirm that this has resulted in better snow traction on this model.
Goodyear Assurance CS Fuel Max
Assurance CS Fuel Max is yet another excellent touring tire from a premium manufacturer that provides Cherokee drivers with nearly everything they need to enjoy a safe and comfortable driving experience.
Due to the special tread compound that has been specifically designed to reduce fuel consumption and emission levels, the Assurance CS Fuel Max tires improve fuel economy and emissions.
In addition to this, the Goodyear is also very responsive in the corners and is flexible on the outside and offers excellent grip and traction thanks to the Dry Tread Zones that cover the inboard and outboard layers.
On the other hand, the central Wet Tread Zone acts as an improved grip and traction zone on wet surfaces, while the Dual Aqua channel grooves add resistance against hydroplaning, making your drive on wet surfaces safe and enjoyable. The Goodyear is also suitable for light snow due to the increased number of sides and edges that bite into the snow.
The Assurance CS Fuel Max is a comfortable and quiet touring tire, although it does not rival the best touring tires in terms of comfort and noise level. Also, the treadwear warranty that covers 65,000 miles is a bit lacking when compared to others.
Firestone Destination LE2
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on the Michelin Defender LTX, the Firestone Destination LE2 is a great option at a much lower price.
Although Firestone may be cheaper than Michelin, it is hard to see the difference behind the wheel because its price is so much smaller.
The Destination LE2 has very good stability, traction, grip, and braking on both dry surfaces and wet surfaces, and it is even usable in light snow conditions.
These tires can be used for towing large trailers without worrying too much about safety. Just like Michelins can be used for towing large trailers.
It should be noted, however, that the Firestone tire can be a bit noisy on the highway, and it may not be as comfortable either.
There is also no question that the 60,000 mile treadwear warranty is not the best in the highway category, but given the price of the tire, it could be expected.
Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V2
There are a number of reasons why the Blizzak DM-V2 is among the best options for Cherokee owners who live in areas with extremely harsh winters thanks to the Nano Pro Tech Multicell compound that has a water-loving hydrophilic coating.
Through the use of this coating, water is taken out of the snow which greatly improves traction and braking ability. On paper, this may appear quite ridiculous, but trust us, it works.
As well as offering amazing snow performance, the Bridgestone tire also provides excellent traction, grip, and braking performance on dry and wet surfaces, even when the weather is extremely cold, thanks to the Multicell compound on the tire. On the other hand, the Bridgestone does not come with any warranty regarding treadwear.
