Jeep Gladiator Inch Lift Inch Tires

When negotiating rocks, you need as much tire as possible to give cushioning and traction. As a result, a wider, higher tire is preferable. The Rubicon sports a 285 mm wide tire with a 70 profile, but on smaller rims. The High Altitude variant, on the other hand, has a 275 mm tire with a 55 profile. When dealing with difficult terrain, a tire with such a low profile may give less traction and cushioning.

Jeep Wrangler was the first off-road vehicle. Unfortunately, conventional tires do not meet the off-roading demands of many people. Jeep has taken note of this and has started to introduce new models with wider tires throughout the years. Here are a few of the models and how they can accommodate 35-inch tires.

I updated the tires on my Gladiator to 35x12.50R17 Nitto Ridge Grapplers within two weeks of acquiring it. I had them in a lesser size on my last daily vehicle, a 2018 Chevy Colorado ZR2, and was impressed with how well they worked on and off the road. The issue with this tire was that when I first put it up at street pressure (about 35psi), the tires were crowning owing to the tiny 7.5-inch-wide standard wheel. This is seen in the shot with the tread's outside bands. To get the whole contact patch on the ground, I had to lower the air pressure below 30psi, which hurt my fuel efficiency and performance. While I loved the OEM wheel's design, I knew I wanted to place my Ridge Grapplers on a bigger wheel.
