America's Tire and Discount Tires are the same company. Most stores are called Discount Tire.
Pretty sure it's America's Tire only in Cali.
That's a really good company; they treat their employees well, and the people are "empowered" (hate that word) to do whatever it takes to solve problems for customers. Car dealers should pay attention.
I've exclusively used Discount Tire for the last 19 years in Colorado, and have sent my daughter to America's Tire in Cali.
My daughter lives in Los Angeles, and you've never met a more protective dad than me.
OK, fine, she's 21, and a big kid; doesn't matter.
I trusted that America's Tire would do the right thing for her, and they completely lived up to my expectations.
The founder of the company died just a couple years ago; he was a good guy, with the right attitude.

They may call that an A/T... but that is not an "All Terrain" tread pattern. That's an "All Season" Tread pattern (extremely similar to the Wildpeak H/T's or Goodyear SRA's that comes stock).
Now with CUV's (cross over utility vehicles) dominating auto sales... tire manufacturers are starting to play the "looks like" game. They're starting to take all season tires and just putting some "shoulder" tread on it to make them look more aggressive (and catch they eye), but they are not what they describe. When looking for a real AT tire, look for deep tread, and interlocking cross lugs (not lines down the center of them, which all seasons use to dispel water). I wish they would stop doing this (the marketing game), but it's only going to get worse (as the milder AT tires are selling like hotcakes now).

ETA: not that there's anything wrong with "All Seaons"... I'm strictly talking about some being marketed at "All Terrains" simply because they think they'll sell better (rather than actually MAKING an all terrain tire).
My 2019 hawk was marked as All Terrain Tires as standard spec on the online listing from the dealer. However when I received it they were the wildpeak h/t. I have a ticket open with jeep for incorrect parts.

Dealer ended up agreeing to put the G015s I had on my old trailhawk on my new one at no cost.

Ok - please educate me here. The Renegades all come with tires, right? Are the stock tires so bad that it's common to immediately go out and spend an extra $1000 or so on new ones? What do you then do with the brand new stock tires?
Yes, stock tires bad. Tread down to 2/32 in 26,000 miles. Falken tires are BAD

Size Selection & Warranty

Beyond the 3% WARNING! Diameter Variance rule, discussed above, that I'm also concerned about any possible impacts to the 9-speed automatic transmission, suspension and drivetrain component wear, but that is just the beginning. I want to make sure I have NO Impact on: Comfort, Road Noise, Handling, Steering, Braking, Alignment or Tire Wear.

Well okay, of course, there will be some compromise from a highway tread tire, but I’m speaking of trade-off between different brands and models of All Terrain A/T tires.

But MOST IMPORTANTLY: NO Impact on the Jeep Factory Warranty


So after reviewing the information tire size alternatives, perhaps the Best Size Selection may be the 215/70R16, for the reason being it is the same width as the stock tire and it is .15 inches shorter that the stock 28" tire height. This may help from Jeep claiming a larger diameter tire size contributed to any warranty claims you may have and saying you voided your warranty.
I just purchased a set of Cooper AT3s at 235/60/R17 for my 2016 Trailhawk. They are .2 inches taller than stock and fit just fine with no rubbing. Ran it through some bogs this last week and it performed beautifully.

I just got a set of the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S 99T SL OWL All Terrain in factory size for my Trailhawk 215 /65 R17 https://www.americastire.com/buy-tires/cooper-discoverer-at3-4s/p/39588
because they were on back order for a few months for the Falken WildPeaks which are currently on the 2020 models. I actually like these ones better, they gave me them at the Falken price, these are at least $20.00 more per tire. They have one snowflake on them, I will be driving them through mountain passes and snow and ice, the original set of Goodyear Wrangler A/T were not too bad for snow when they were new but they wore out at 27K miles so I replaced them with these. I feel confident that these will be much better and I wont have to get dedicated winter tires and rims which will save me money for now. I will try to post photos if anyone wants to see what they look like mounted.
Q though, these were inflated to 33 lbs and then slowlyl work up to 35 lbs as I drive them, is this normal? I guess I never checked what my Goodyears were doing but they were pretty consistent at 35lbs no matter what I was driving them at, except maybe on a really cold day it would drop down and the TPS sensor displayed it.

Thats good to know, I just got factory size of this version because I still use snow chains occasionally and mine don't fit that size tire but they do fit the factory size

You're a good dad, I just got some Cooper ATs on my 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk form the local Americas TIre and got a good deal and warranty on all four. I am happy with their service. They give a military and AAA member discount as well.

The air inside the tyre heats up with use and that in turn causes a pressure increase.

Similarly I have seen my low tyre pressure warning light come on in the morning when it's cold and within 10 minutes it turns itself off as the tyres have reached normal running temperature.

Q though, these were inflated to 33 lbs and then slowlyl work up to 35 lbs as I drive them, is this normal? I guess I never checked what my Goodyears were doing but they were pretty consistent at 35lbs no matter what I was driving them at, except maybe on a really cold day it would drop down and the TPS sensor displayed it.
However, no matter what the pressure reading is we must all ensure that we don't:

  • Decrease the tyre pressure just because it's reading high without understanding if it is just a weather/heat variable that caused the increase. Doing so will cause you to be running under inflated with the risk of popping a tyre of the rim.
  • Similarly we must not increase the tyre pressure when showing low if it's again caused by the weather for fear of the higher risk that a puncture from sharp rocks etc can cause.
  • Only inflate if you are 100% certain there is a problem ie a cracked inflation valve causing air loss, A damaged rim causing air loss, puncture etc
  • Very rarely should ever need to deflate your tyres. If you need a better wider grip then buy a respective and proper tyre for what you are doing ie off roading.
I am aware that it may read as though I am trying to "teach you to suck eggs" as my old Grandma used to say and that is so far from the truth. The wiser "off roaders and normal car users" I understand are aware of tyre pressures but we do have beginners that are likely to be reading the forum and with such a relatively new car that they may only be learning.

For information the Terra Firma TF4408 Steel wheel definately does not fit a Trail Hawk (2016) Example Here , I bought one from this site to test as jeepey have them on offer , when fitted, it does catch the Caliper on the outside of the casting on the front wheels , and I doubt a spacer would help unless it was significant in size , anyway the wife has a potential wacky new garden flower pot 🤣 as I dont fancy grinding calipers down.

I am still looking for some new wheels that will suit my jeep , I hate the stock wheels it came with

(I have these )

2396349917


Wish I could find an alternative (in UK) that made it look a little more trail rated :)

Thats why I liked the Terra Firma steel wheels , I have looked at alloy alternatives but you can pay a lot of money for wheels easily £800+ and then you have to consider additional cost of TPMS (£40 per wheel ) assumming like me you want to keep the old alloys as spares and of course tires (I am thinking Yokohama GO15 at £90+ each )

But if anyone has some alternative suggestions would love to hear

Finally replaced the original highway tires that came on my 2017 Trailhawk (Falken Wild Peak HT) with some more capable Falken Wild Peak AT3s. They're slightly noisier, but they really do make a difference in the light off roading I've done with them so far. Looks more Jeep-like, too.

I ended up buying a wheel and tire bundle from this shop. I decided to opt for Toyo Open Country tires after reading the reviews online and I match it with the Fuel wheels Blitz model. I am so happy with this purchase, I tried it off-road and I'm so impressed with the traction and minimal noise that this tire produces.

I just replaced my factory Falken Wildpeak H/T with Toyo Open Country AT III. Love them! Tons of grip on the trails and minimal noise on the road.
