What To Look For When Buying The Best Tires For Jeep Liberty?
Below, I have listed a few things when looking for the best tires on a Liberty.
If you are always driving on paved roads, going with an all-terrain tire may not make sense unless you’re going for the looks.
All-season tires will be much better suited for anyone driving on city streets and highways daily. But an all-terrain would make more sense if you like to get wild with your Jeep and take off-road vacations.
You don’t want to put a tire with a lower speed rating on than what Jeep recommends. I would not recommend a speed rating lower than T(118 MPH) for the Liberty to ensure proper vehicle performance and tire longevity.
Tires with rebates will obviously cost you less money at the end of the day, but they will also make your purchase have more value.
Michelin, Continental, Goodyear, and Cooper are manufacturers that frequently run rebates on their tires.
How Much Do Tires For Jeep Liberty Cost?
Below you will find estimates on how much tires will cost for the Jeep Liberty. Pricing will vary based on the tire size you have.
Four New Tires
Four new tires will cost you between $500 and $1250.
Two New Tires
If you need to replace only two tires, it will cost between $250 and $600.
It is never recommended to replace less than for tires if your Liberty is 4WD. It can cause premature failure of the drivetrain.
For whatever reason, you only need to replace one single tire. It will cost between $125 and $275.
What Tire Size Is Best For A Jeep Liberty?
The factory tire size is best for the Liberty. Increasing your tire size can lead to issues like rubbing and decreased fuel efficiency. I do not recommend downsizing your size either, as that will put you at risk of overloading the tires and have a higher chance of failure.
How Long Should Your Jeep Liberty Tires Last?
The average mileage I have seen tires last on a Jeep Liberty is between forty-five and sixty-five thousand miles.
Receiving mileage that exceeds these numbers with the right tire and proper tire maintenance is possible. I have listed some tips below to help ensure the most amount of miles possible.
- Tire rotations every five to eight thousand miles
- Tire pressure checks once a month
- Wheel alignments are performed once a year
When To Replace Tires On Your Jeep Liberty?
It is recommended to replace your tire at either six years of age from the manufactured date or 4/32nds of tread.
Replacing your tires before these recommendations will ensure your tires on the Liberty don’t fail and lose traction.
The tire’s age can be found on the sidewall within the DOT description. The DOT is a ten or more-digit series of letters and numbers used to identify the make and model of the tire as well as the date it was made.
It will be the last four digits of the DOT to find the age. For example, DOT XCZY K5HN 4021. 40 will be the week, and 21 will be the year.
Does The Brand Matter For A Jeep Liberty When Replacing Tires?
The brand of tire will determine the quality. Going with a name-brand manufacturer will ensure you receive good tread life, traction, and ride quality.
The brand will absolutely matter if you want to get any of those things for your Liberty.
Does the Year of Your Jeep Liberty Matter When Buying New Tires?
Since the Jeep Liberty is no longer in production, the year of it may determine what kind of tire you want to put on. I am too familiar with the Liberty not being a reliable vehicle, so that also may deter you from putting an expensive tire on.
What Are The Biggest Tires I Can Put On A Jeep Liberty?
Unfortunately, the Liberty has very little room in the fender wells to fit a bigger tire. The factory size is the largest diameter tire you can fit without making significant modifications, I.E., cutting fenders, lifting the car, or replacing your rims.
