Get the Right Tires for 1997 Jeep Cherokee

Finding the right tires can be quick and easy, especially when you have all the information you need to make a good decision. That's why you should come to see us when it's time to buy new tires for your 1997 Jeep Cherokee. Firestone Complete Auto Care is the place to go for Jeep tires in all sizes, for all seasons. Whether you want tire that's made to take tight corners, handle diverse terrain, or improve fuel-efficiency, you'll find the right tires for your vehicle and budget.

View the recommended tires for your 1997 Jeep Cherokee, plus helpful information about Jeep Cherokee tire size, tire inflation, and speed rating. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”

Other than getting the proper tire size, there are a couple of other factors to consider when buying Jeep Cherokee tires like which tire brands you like most and where you drive. If you live in Florida, you probably won't need studded snow tires anytime soon. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.

Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. Drivers in states that fully experience all four seasons often buy two sets of tires: one set for winter, one set for summer. That way, they can maximize their Jeep Cherokee's performance during both seasons. Other drivers prefer the convenience of all-season tires. They make one trip to the tire shop and they're pretty much ready for rain, light snow, or sun!

Your personal driving style is the next factor to consider. Do you enjoy pushing your Jeep Cherokee to the limits? Hitting the road less traveled? If you're a diehard off-roader, you have very different tire needs than a highway commuter who doesn't leave the paved path. You'll want a tire that can handle gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might even want a bigger tire with stiffer sidewalls and a wide tread pattern to help prevent punctures and maintain stability on bumpy roads. But if you're comfortable in the city and suburbs, a Jeep Cherokee tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Browse Jeep Cherokee tires online or come to your nearby Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 1997 Jeep Cherokee tires.
