jeep cherokee 4x4 tires recomendations
is it ok to put 2 different makes of tires on a 4x4 but of the same recomended size?
one dealer told me it is not recomended even if most of the time its only in 2x4,and a jeep specialist said it was ok as long as it is close in tire thread and grip
so 2 of the same in the front and 2 others in the back
in reality it is preferable as recomended to have 4 of the same brand and model.
1 of my tires is blown and they do not make it anymore so i got 2 new ones,or 4 of the same wich is ridicoulous for a jeep that is mostly in 2x4

Yes as long as they are the same gereral tread design and the SAME size it will be fine. It may not be the best as far as performance and handling goes but there would be no safety concerns.

if you go off-road or have a snow the Nitto terra Grapplers are the bomb. I have then on my Xterra...PR...

I just picked up the Goodyear Fortera Triple Treds cause I mostly drive on road, but apparently they are great for snow too. Great tires so far, although a little expensive.

On a Cherokee you will be fine with only 2 tires.
You shouldn't be in 4wd anyway unless there is the ability for the tires to slip if needed. The 231 t-case is fully locked in 4wd and doesn't like to be in 4wd on dry pavement even with all the tires the same. Even if you have one with the 242 case it will be fine.
The concerns are with the newer Grand Cherokees that have basically an AWD system.
The 231/242 t-cases are pretty durable units and get beat on hard in the wheeling comunity so running tires with a few 32ths of more tread depth will not hurt a thing.
This is all assuming you put BOTH new tires on either the front or back and not the new tires on the Left side or Right together.....
