Anyone know of a 15" that will fit? I've got some older wheels from my TJ laying around that aren't listed above.

Was thinking of getting some snow/ice/winter tires and mounting them on the TJ wheels and putting them on the Patriot, and leaving the nice 17" wheels for summer.

225-70-15 is about the same as the 215-60-17 that's currently on my Patriot.

To add to the knowledge bank. 16'' alloy rims from Liberty Renegade do not fit. The rim will not clear the caliper.

Heh, I was browsing and come her and look what has popped up.

And, look at what i found elsewhere...a data base that matches your vehicles wheels to any and all others that use the same spacing.

Scroll down on that page, I'd already done the search when I copied the URL.

I'm going for the 1982 Lincoln Town car wheels, you?

According to that link, the Cherokee 15" wheels could fit, and so would the Liberty wheels The Jeep Now tried... but they don't. Unless I read it wrong

It's earlier in this thread or another, but I have pictures from when I tried a
16" liberty rim, and wouldn't clear the caliber on the front tires, back tires were fine.

With a small spacer you could run them no problem

Tyler, I did see your thread. This is a little bit different rim that your tried on. I currently run 16'' steel rim from '04 Liberty with no problems and no spacers.

If they touch the back side of the spokes just add a small wheel spacer and they will clear. 1/4 inch spacer is all you need. Small wheel spacers won't hurt anything. Its the thick ones that don't bolt on to the hub that are sketchy.

I sold that set to a happy Cherokee owner and bought Unique 297 instead.

Well, over a couple of years later and thanks to our commitment to research (that's how I call our inner desire of messing up with things that were just fine to begin with) we can now say these puppies fit...(if you are willing not to get scared by a very low clearance between the wheel and the brake caliper on the front wheels). but so did JeepingLG, Bwpakk, Sandstone & myself.

Hey guys, new Riot owner and trying to figure all this out... I have FDII and 215/65/17 Wranglers and am wanting move to a beefier tire on a smaller rim. I have found a set of old Cherokee rims for $100. They are 15x7, with 5 bolts and a 4.5" diameter. All I know is that these rims are a medium offset, whereas the stock Riots are high offset... Any comments? Thoughts?

15" Rims and Tires

Thought I would gather all the 15" rim info I found together to make it easier for those who are interested in fitting their MK's with 15" rims and tires. If anyone knows of anything that should be here but isn't, let me know and I'll add it in.

A comment on caliper clearance:
Even when the 15" rims fit, clearance between front calipers and the rim can be very close. This may be more of a concern for steel rims as they can bend.


* 15" Rims That Fit *

Ravine alloy 15x8



These rims are lighter than stock 17" rims (18 vs 22 lbs), which can help offset the weight of larger tires.

There are at least 4 members who used this rim with various tires.


JeepinLG - 30x9.5? with no mods to calipers reported, trimmed pinch weld cover in wheel well.

Some fit, but others don't. May need spacers or caliper mods.

Unhappy Question about stock 16 inch wheels and RRO lift.

Hello Wise Forum,

My 11 4wd Pat Sport is in the shop right now, decided to get someone else (tire shop) to do my RRO lift for me to save trouble with alignment issues. What should have been an easy job for even a shadetree like me, was a nightmare for them, getting things lined up etc. They were given the instructions, and it was not the first lift they have ever done. Long and short is that I wanted to fit a set of 235 65 16's on and there is no room! the rear drivers spring/strut barely clears the inside sidewall of the stock tire!?! Am I missing something? Could the lift be installed wrong? Tire guy is searching skinny alternatives for me as we speak!
Help!!

2011 metallic silver Sport 4X4 CVT, RRO lift but still deciding on tire and size, homestyle power locks and groovy westech floormats.
