Look at the wear on your current tires. If it looks at all uneven, get the alignment.

Re: Best Tire for the Asphalt Loving Jeep

I just installed the Michelin defender ltx tires and I'm extremely happy with them. Excellent wet grip...nice smooth ride and surprisingly good handling. They have an awesome treadwear warranty...this tire is the real deal.

Do I need a 4 wheel alignment when I get the new tires. Or is the balancing good enough. I know these JGC with 20's are finicky. Thanks in advanced!

If I invested in new tires I would spend another $70-$100 for a Hunter 4 wheel alignment. But it's your money.

Re: Best Tire for the Asphalt Loving Jeep

Hey protect,can't honestly answer on a JGC,but my wife's Liberty Limited(08) has a set of Pirelli Scorpions and has had for +5,000 miles now,being a heavy little truck,I spent about 3 weeks researching(kinda doesn't matter now as it sits in the driveway as she decided our '15 JGC is hers now!),have found them to be a sustantial piece of rubber,EXCELLENT in the wet,surprisingly do VERY well in the Maryland snow and give plenty of traction,so much so that when one of our other Jeeps,(own 4 total,kind of a self admitted Jeep fanatic) is in need of new shoes,being as Suprised/impressed at how well the Pirellis perform they will definitely be going on our other Jeeps.Everyone has their own views,so offer up my 10 cents worth of what I know.Again,I can't honestly answer on a JGC as we only have these on our Liberty but are suitably impressed.Hope this helps.
