Help!

I have a 2016 Patriot Latitude with stock rims and stock tires (205 70R60), what is the biggest size I could go without lifting it? I was thinking 225 or maybe 235. Probably gonna keep the stock rims for now as I already plasti dipped then so they look a bit better. Thanks!

I'm trying the same thing I've been searching around and found that street tire 235/70R17
And A/T cuz of the thread 235/65R17 I think max tire diameter is 29" because the wheel well is like 30.5" and u want clearance

It sounds like you've got the 16" steel wheels? I think you meant to put 205/70R16. If that's what you have 235/70/16 will fit but you'll have pretty significant rub. I had bad rub when I got these on my stock steelie's but installing 1.25" wheel spacers fixed the issue without having to do the pinch weld mod. In addition to that the spacer gave my pat a wider stance which definitely helped in the looks department.

Here's mine before I got my pro comp wheels. These are with the wheel spacers installed.

Which tires fit & which ones don't (16")

That particular thread is also a great resource to figuring out what size you want to get. Its in the knowledge base.

I presume you meant 205 70R16 not 60? I'm running 225/75-16s right now and the fit is incredibly close. I can't imagine anything larger. And these tires already have 20,000 miles on them so a new tire might be too close. Its your call.

If you go to Discount Tire's website (a site sponsor) they have a function where you can enter your vehicle and they will tell you what tires will fit. They don't show the 225/75-16s for mine which probably means under extreme conditions (hard cornering, braking, bumps, etc) they could be problematic.

Truth be told, I've advised others not to use this size, but as I said, I just put them on my 2008 and so far so good. (No, its not lifted) I'm told that recent years sit higher. Seems to be true: my Wife's 2014 Patriot sits an inch higher than mine, and both are FWD. If yours is 2016 likely you've got that inch too and it may be what you need.

Are you on good terms with a local mechanic? Local shop might work with you to do a trial fit. That's what I did. First guy said "No go" second guy said, "Let's try it." I did and so far so good.

I got My tires for the 16 inch wheels. I got the 235/65 r16 and work great no lift kit or rubbing. Stands about .7 inch taller. I have done my research you can fit a 235/70r16 but may have to make room for it cutting the fender or something. Also it seems the 205 tires are harder to find than the 235s. Let us know how it goes. I am happy with my tires and went camping in the woods in payson az did a great job.

I've got 225/65 R17 now on my 2014 Latitude with no interference issues.
You might just have to try a bigger tire than that maybe with spacers if there's rubbing.
Let us know what you end up with. Id also like to go with 235/70's if there's no serious rubbing.
