When it comes to off-road performance for your Jeep Wrangler, lots of 4X4 aficionados will tell you it’s all about the tires. But then, if it’s about the tires, it’s also about the wheels and the rims and the suspension. According to Off-Road.com, driving a Jeep Wrangler over rough terrain can be one of the most breathtaking experiences of your life. But a lot of that experience is determined by your Jeep’s tires. Simply said, subpar tires and the accessories that go with them, will make your off-road (and on-road) experience subpar. “If you want to have some great, safe, off-road Jeep exploring, you need to invest in high quality tires,” says TDOT Performance, a shop that sells shocks, wheels, and rims in Canada. When it comes to tire selection, there’s seemingly no end what you can choose.
But here are 6 of the best all-terrain tires for you Jeep in the 2020s.
- Falken WildPeak A/T Trail Jeep Tire
Says Off-Road.com, if you’re the kind of Jeep driver who’s looking for that all-around versatility from your Jeep Wrangler ride, the Falken WildPeak A/T Trail tire is the way to go. It’s said to boast the deepest tread in its class and is constructed in part with a durable high-silica compound for extra longevity and superior performance in wet weather. Its tread blocks and biting edges make it a great stable choice for driving trails without the danger of sliding off of them. The tires are also puncture resistance and they will also provide extra traction when aired-down for more rocky terrain.
- Dick Cepek Extreme Country Jeep Tire
Looking for a mud-terrain tire you can use on a daily basis? The Dick Cepek Extreme Country Maximum Traction light truck tire is a terrific option. The tread compound is said to have been engineered for maximum protection from cuts while its deep symmetrical construction comes with deep, wide voids for the efficient ejection of stones. Its angled shoulder scallops, taken along with its “DC” side-biters, make for excellent protection against puncture and peak traction on loose and muddy trails.

Considered one of the most popular choices for Jeep off-road fans, the BF Goodrich T/A KO2 tire possesses superior off-road, loose-surface traction while maintaining its ability to perform well on-road. Its tread design is computer engineered for optimum trail riding and stone ejection. It is constructed of tough twin nylon-reinforced steel belts, and 3-ply polyester cord sidewalls making it extra strong and extra durable. It is also said to be a heck of a tire in the snow.
- Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Jeep Tire
The Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Jeep Wrangler tire is one of the most popular and affordable. It features a symmetrical tread design engineered with a rugged compound that is said to be chip resistant even when you are towing or hauling a heavy load.

Because of its unique zigzagging sipe grouping, the tire meets the 4X4 industry’s most severe snow service standard.

Like its name suggests, the Pro Comp Xtreme M/T2 Jeep Tire is most definitely designed for the hardcore all-terrain 4X4 off-roading enthusiast. Their triple-ply construction is said to give them terrific sidewall puncture protection when navigating trails with jagged rocks, while twin nylon-wrapped steel belts make for a decent on-road performance. But these tires are built for trails and mega off-road challenges, with big tread blocks, and deep treads for superior traction even over damp, mud-slicked, seemingly disastrous rock faces.

If racing through the Mojave Desert in your Jeep Wrangler is your idea of heaven on earth, you need to grab a set of Mickey Thompson Baja ATZP3 tires. Having developed a solid reputation for building one of the best off-road performance tires in the business, the Mickey Thompson Baja tire is a cross between an all-terrain and a mud-terrain tire that can also handle desert terrain with relative ease. 2021 model tires sport a brand new engineered compound that’s resistant to cuts, chips, and punctures.
