New tire for Jeep Patriot 2013

Hi all,

I have a question about tire size. I have a Patriot 2013 and tire size is 205/70R16. Can I replace with 215/70R16?
Thanks

This would be a better choice, as your speedometer will still be fairly accurate.

Either should fit. My snow tires are 215/65-16s. The speedometer/odometer differences is so slight it hardly matters.

my 2013 4x4 fd1 5spd came new with 17" wheel package.

i decided after the tires wore out to go to a 16" wheel and the 215/70R16 tire. i hated the gy wranglers... super noisey. i went with the yoko geolander ats. this tire is exactly the same outside diameter as what came off my jeep in the 17" size. so no speedo issues there. I gained some sidewall which helped the ride and helps more in offroad/rocky situations- though my offroading is limited to a steep creek gravel mountain road with some rocks sticking up an inch or so here and there that i have to nagivate around. but rubber will give before metal will.

i like the look way better. the feel way better- who puts low profile tires on a 4x4 vehicle come on- and it seems more jeep-like. i also lost some weight on each corner as the aftermarket wheels weigh about 4 lbs less per wheel- went with drag 9 wheels from discount tires. The tires got heavier but no by much, like 1 lb, and that is more than offset by less metal wheel weight....that means i lost no low end torque and in fact gained a hair i'd bet and it's easier on the wheel bearings and junk on the front end- less weight and more shock absorbing rubber....

If your present tires are 16" and your new tires are 16" you can use the same wheels.
