17" tire fit

This is for a standard Patriot and not lifted, correct?

What size are you talking about specifically? The 215/225's should not rub without the lift. I am using 225/60's and am fine. I am almost certain the 225/65's do not need lifting either.

As for the 235's I would prefer someone else answering on that one.

Regarding the 235/65 17:

It would be interesting to note what tires people have that rub, and what tires people have that don't rub.
In other words, is it the make of tire that causes it to rub?

Well I'm going to be getting some Yokohama Geolanders myself unless something better pops up. I got the stock Goodyears and at 38k they are just about shot. I hope these wear better and without the tire rub. Any update on the tire rub btw? how much has been taken off? 215/60/17's are now available....

EDIT: SCRATCH the Yoko Geolanders, at 190 a piece they can go f*** themselves.
EDIT again, Tire Rack has them for much cheaper, I may get Geolanders after all LOL

So, to recap, if you have a non-lifted Pat with 17" wheels, you should stick with 215/65/17 or 225/65/17 if you don't want any chance of rubbing. Correct?

Now to search for relatively aggressive looking tires that don't break my budget....

EDIT: I lied, Tony1911 did have some slight rubbing with the 225s... hmm... wait, with the lift? OK, now I am confused...

I don't like signatures.

anyone have the Yoko geolander A/T's (225/65/17) on a non-lifted, non-4x4 patriot? I saw that the geolander's overall diameter is 29.6" which is quite a bit more than I expected.....I would hate to have to get something smaller because the OEM tires blow donkey balls, and the other alternatives in the same size suck

EDIT: NM, tirerack.com must be incorrect, Yoko's website sez it's 28.5


07 Silver Pat, 2.4L 5-speed manual,leather and power package,17" Yoko Geolander A/T-S, 14" Black Billet stubby antenna, Curt Class III Hitch, black muffler mod, Hella Optilux 2500's,and more to come...

I vaguely remember from another forum that it was a misprint. The correct diameter of the 225/65/17 should be 28.5". I would have bought those tires if I only had one set of wheels.

see post # 4 please. Sometimes I wonder why I bother.

<edit> OK, you're forgiven - you're looking for a 4X2, although that's the same as a 4X4 suspension wise.
