    The tire installer wasn't sure and referred me to the Owners Manual. Unfortunately I bought the vehicle used and do not have the Owners Manual.

What is the proper tire for the 1999 jeep grand cherokee laredo


Trick question.....no fair!!!!!!

Seriously, it depends on your application. I had a 1999 and now drive a 2001......

The best advice will be from a good tire store... I can only offer you what I know based on experience.

A good "All Season" M/S (mud and snow) tire rated "Traction A" is OK for "all season" driving UNLESS you are facing allot of mud and snow!

If so, you need "off road" or "snow" tires.... if you are looking at lots of ice on the road, you need to have them "studded". You will have to change this type of tire after the winter season is over as required by law. Also, these tires make allot of "road noise" and are unsuitable for things like commuting down the freeway.

You will get the best advice from your local tire dealer because even though we can give you generic answers like those I just provided, your local tire dealer can understand much better exactly what you want to use your Jeep for in your particular neighborhood, and give you exactly what you need.

2004 jeep grand cherokee laredo after driving through snow drift vibrates and is loud


I do it all the time. the reason that happens is snow packs in the rims and tires and causes the tires to be out of balance so at speed they will vibrate and make a louder road noise. solution bring it to the car wash and spray those tires down.

4 wheel drive quit at some time didn't know it...drives fine only rear wheels pulling..could it be electrical ??


I hava a 1999 Grand cherokee loredo V8 with full time 4wheel drive. when the rear tires slip I am hearing a poping noise in the front end when the 4wheel drive engages. I was told by one person that it could be the chain in the transfer case slipping but I was told by a jeep salesman that this year jeep did not have a chain. Could this be the CV joints in the front axels?

How can i use the 4 x 4 in my 2000 grand cherokee laredo (6 cyl) i dont have the owners manual and i dont know how to use my 4x4 on snow or something like that


With the Jeep in park, move the left shifter to 4 wheel drive. Proceed to put right shifter into drive, proceed to drive. Only use 4wheel drive when neccessary...ie...snow, mud, use 4 wheel lo in steep incline or when really bogged down.

Hope this helps

sounds like it time to have the front end balljoints inspected. Only with an inspection will you get the proper results. Why guess, this is a safety issue.

In normal drive position I am only getting rear wheel drive, if I put the lever into low ratio and drive I get a loud bag from the rear of the vehicle when driving in a straight line. The vehicle in a Jeep...


Sounds a lot like the viscous coupling in the transfer case is failing. The part alone is over $500. If you continue to use it, it's likely it will damage the front differential as well. Coupling can fail on it's own from normal use and can also be damaged by using tires that have different rolling distance front to rear, why it's very important to only buy tires of the same size, four at a time, as even wear on a similar used tire can cause this problem.
You can get an entire unit from a scrapyard for less than half the price of the part. Just make sure you get one that matches the numbers on the round tag on the rear of the drivers side of the case.

I put snow tires on my Quadratic 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee and it works fine on snow and ice and the reason is because its never out of 4WD because its all time 4WD

Front end and rear end differential


The 99 Jeep Grand Cherokee was prone to bad diff bearings because they changed the plant where they were made. The new plant used inferior materials. The only way to fix it is to replace and set the diff clearences.

What is the largest tires i can put on a 1999 grand cherokee


Basically, you can put any tire you want under your vehicle providing it fits under the wheel tubs. HOWEVER: remember that each time you increase tire diameter, you are likewise increasing the amount of foot lbs of energy required to get the vehicle underway from a dead start and uphill. You will also be changing the final drive ratio which will cause inaccurate speedometer operation and also affect the speed sensor (if so equipped) output to the ecm. Making a small change such as going from a 225 tire to a 235, is OK as long as you note the speed inaccuracy, to avoid getting speeding tickets, but a jump of three sizes or more could result in driveline and performance problems. Putting in "lift kits" and giant tires looks hot, but unless its done correctly it causes more grief than it's worth, unless you are in need of additional grolund clearance for a specific reason.
