All Season Tires 215/ 65 r17
Hello everyone, I know this topic has been covered several times but I really cannot find the information I want. I have a 2009 Patriot FWD with 215/65 r17 tires on it. this is the stock size according to the label on the Drivers Side door. I am looking for some opinions on a good all season tire. I live in Central New York so I would take a little snow traction over performance. I know a true winter tire would be superior but I have never felt the need to buy them because I do not need to travel very far to work. If it is snowing out that bad, I probably wont go over 30 anyway cause I always seem to get stuck behind some old lady.
Anyways, I currently have Cooper CS4's on the Jeep and I am not impressed. They seem to lose their grip in wet conditions and they make my front end bop and weave on any cement roads. They recently paved part of a highway with concrete and the little grooves make it scary to go 65 down.
Also, Tire rack is showing a 215/60 r17 as stock too. apparently this size is a hair shorter. was considering the geolanders in that size but don't really want the jeep to sit lower than it is or mess with the speedometer.
Any recommendations would be appreciated, Thanks
