Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

I had a sidewall blow out several years ago. The road was shale and a piece of it reared up and punctured the sidewall.
Re: Michelins. I traded in my Latitudes for LTX M/S2's as a 12 month tire on my Limited.

Agreed on the poor treadlife of the Latitude tires, in addition to the other issues already well discussed.

The Michelin treadlife warranty in Canada is 110,000 kms (69k miles), but mine were on track to not even achieve 65,000 kms (41k miles) even when used only on-road, well inflated and with good alignment. So the Latitudes have the poorest treadlife of any Michelin tire I have ever owned going back 20 years. All just to save 300 litres of fuel over the life of the tires, according to Michelin's web site.

Latitudes, good riddance!

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

Just picked my new Overland up a week ago. My original plan was to replace the 18" Latitudes with the Michelin M/S2s, with a set of Blizzaks for winter. But I wasn't too excited about spending the money for two sets of tires and a set of winter wheels. After more research, I decided to go with Goodyear Silent Armors (265/65/18). They are an all-season, all-terrain tire carrying the mountain/snowflake symbol of a dedicated winter tire. I've only put a few miles on them so far, but their handling and quietness (on pavement) seem roughly comparable to the Michelins. Their all-terrain appearance looks much more Jeep-like, however. And I don't have to change tires twice a year!

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

SilentArmors are a solid choice for year round use.

Re: Off-Road Adventure II Package Tires

I would ask about the ms/2. Discount tires stated that they were recalled a few times.

Need comparisons on how grand Cherokee Overland rides with Quadra Drive ii 18 inch off road package ii vs. lower models ie limited, laredo. Do you feel the road more as the Laredo feels too cushy and not like the real grand Cherokees with solid axles. Hoping for a more enjoyable more jeep like road and off road feeling ride with overland and off road package ii, thanks!

My Overlander leaves the plant today with a delivery date of 14 April, and now I know I have sucky tires. How could they put skid plates on a Jeep (which I feel should be standard equipment), and not good tires?

That bites.

let us know the first time you get stuck with those crappy tires.

I have followed my 95 wrangler through the snow/mud/trails with my stock JGC with the latitudes with no issue. My wrangler has a 4 inch lift with 33" BFG's on it. I do get that the tires do not look like an offroad tire but I have yet to run into a situation where they have held me back.
