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...

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

02-02-2010, 11:16 PM
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.

Yikes! $1400!? Are they using platinum wheel weights and golden wrenches? www.tirerack.com has the 225 and 235/65R17 for $118 and $116 respectively (yes, the 225 is $2 more). So a set of four would be $472 or less and with estimated Shipping Costs to ZIP Code V1M 0A1 @ $142, that comes to $614...not even half of your quote.

Thanks for any help

I am looking at the same size so I can upgrade my stock 215/60R-17 tires. Not a big fan of the Firestone Affinity tires in bad weather( i.e. winter ). What was Jeep thinking using a tire size that basically only has pasenger car tires available on a 4WD Jeep?

I have concerns about rubbing as well not because of the overall height but rather due to the section width of the tire. It is very close to the stock 215/65R-17 tires height wise but it is wider and I would hate to spend money on tires and have them rub on the suspension or hit in sharp turns.

I haven't seen anyone post they are running this size( lifted or not ). If anyone has this size could you let us know if there are any rub issues. This tire seems to be an ideal replacement tire for those who want a true light truck tire( AS or AT )as it is very close to the OE tire size( 215/65 = 28.00 235/60 = 28.10 ) and won't screw up the speedo much at all( @ 60 MPH on speedo actual speed 215/65 = 60 MPH 235/60 = 59.7 MPH ). MY only concern is the section width possibly being an issue if the OE tires are maxing out the available space( 215/65 = 8.46 235/60 = 9.25 ).

It never even crossed my mind that the tires would be such an issue due to the oddball size used on a 4WD suv. I want to run Firestone Destinatio LE all seasons as they are excellent tires. They come in 235/60R-17 but not in either of the 2 OE sizes.

i run 235/65/17 and have no rubbing whatsoever. even tried them with spacers off,still no rubbing.
so i guess 235/60/17 shouldn't cause any problems.

Another great tire in 235/60R17 is the Toyo Open County AT. It is a very popular tire and has a good reputation (never had them myself).
I think you would be ok with a 235/60 tire. People with 235/65 report rubbing sometimes but not all.
A good tire shop won't mind trying some tires on for you to see if the rub at full lock.
I have seen a patriot with 235/60R17 with Toyo open Country AT's before. It was some random patriot in a parking lot so I don't know if they rubbed or not. But at least we know someone is running that size!

Even with a lift and coils those tires are far to large to fit on a patriot, they "May fit" but barely and would rub quite badly. Member "boilermaker" did 245/65/17 on his FDII patriot but requires wheel spacers to run that size.

235/65/17 s as big as you would want to go in a 65 series, 225/70/17 has been done with a little bit of rubbing.

This is exactly what I plan to do = 245/65/17 Hankook Dynapro ATM mounted on factory rims....

Getting the RRO lift first tho...and since the lift makes the tires track width narrower because of the suspension geometry, I plan on getting spacers anyway. I think I'm gonna go with 1.5" spacers, so that it'll basically be like having a 0 offset on the factory rims.

I have a 2009 Patriot and Stu's 2” lift springs, I need to replace my tyres and want to put larger profile on.

I tend to do mainly do city driving (not much offroad) currently I have 215 60 R17

What size and brand tires would you recommend?
Also will I need to get the speedo adj?

What tyres are available in Australia

Anyone ever try the Bridgestone Blizzaks? Thinkin about going with Geolanders or them?

Trust me on this, if your planing to use the blizzaks for a year round tire it's not gonna happen. Your not even going to last a couple months into the spring season once the temperature warms up. I had blizzaks on my old car for the winter but didn't have enough money to replace two tires on my other set of wheels so I ran the blizzaks a few months into the spring. The tires get very soft in warm climates as well as bad control when going into turns, horrible in the rain but amazing in snow. Blizzaks are strictly for temperatures under about 40 degrees. You'll see the tread wear extremely fast once the weather warms up. But that's exactly why it's not an all season tire and strictly a winter tire.

Don't know if it matters at this point but I am another member who has 235/65/17 Geolander ATS on a 2010 FD1 4x4 non lifted and does not rub. As a side note, it fills out the wheel wells nicely to the point that I was going to get wheel spacers but I don't need to now.

Has anyone tried a 235/70/17 on a non-lifted 'Riot? I haven't come across anything in the search window.

I tried, I got some problem doing that... I guess my equipment is not enough.

What sort of problems?

I'm looking at the BF Goodrich Rugged Terrain (not to be confused with Rugged Trail) but their sizes are a little limited. Reasonable options would be a 235/70/17 or 245/65/17... I'm not sure which one would be more appropriate/cause fewer issues. I really like the tread pattern on the tire, and it's pretty aggressive looking so I think it would look pretty good on the Patriot.

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?

Radar RXS9's in 235/65R17 with the lift, do in fact rub.

I have the California Black 17" wheels on my Pat and I would like to keep them in pristine order. So I will order either factory 16's or order some aftermarket steelies to have while the truck is lifted, AND potentially offroading. I am going to rock 225/75R16 size tires in the most awesome offroad/all terrain tires I have ever had: the Firestone Destination A/T's. That particular size tire is only about 6mm taller than the 235/65R17's so I see no problems with it.

235/65/17 do not rub after you get 1.25" spacers.

I have 245/65-17, with a lift and 1.25" spacers, and they no longer rub. but before I got the lift and spacers, they rubbed like crazy. I think the biggest you can go before lift/spacers is 225/65-17 w/o rubbing.

245/65/17 is only 7mm more than 235/65/17 and they rub without a lift and spacers.
so be careful

I get rub on almost full lock with kumho kl78 at's 235/65/17 on stock alloys with 1.25 spacers.

Its only on the inner plastics that arn't fully flush on the metal arch

Just bought the Yoko Geolanders 235/65/17 and they rub very slightly at full lock to the right and rub a little before full lock while turning to the left. Had my tire shop inspect it afterwards and found that the rubbing was just an inner plastic well, which he offered to cut out. Opted not to because I plan on getting the RRO lift maybe with some 1.25 spacers which from reading the threads should stop the rubbing.

If people were wondering I found a site to compare the two tires size with respect to the speedometer reading and actual MPH difference and it spat back the following:

215/65/17 235/65/17
20 MPH = 20.7 MPH
30 MPH = 31.1 MPH
40 MPH = 41.4 MPH
50 MPH = 51.8 MPH
60 MPH = 62.1 MPH
70 MPH = 72.5 MPH
80 MPH = 82.9 MPH
90 MPH = 93.2 MPH

Out of curiosity how much hype is added to the vehicle when you switch from 215/65 to 235/65 thank you

215/65's are 28"
235/65's are 29"

so you get a half inch.

I just got Bridgestone Dueller Revo's 235/65/17 on my 2011 and they rub at full lock, I'm gonna try and pound out the wheel well a bit and hopefully that takes care of the issue.

your other option is to get a wheel spacer, then flatten the pinch weld.

Thanks all for the info in this thread. Does the info in the first post apply to 17" wheels on stock non FDII? I was under the impression that FDII had a different ground clearance and wasn't sure if that would change anything regarding tire size.

Ultimately, I'm trying to answer what are the biggest size wheels I can get on my 2014 FDII Limited 4x4 Patriot, so if anyone has a quick answer to that as well, that'd be great.

The FDI and FDII were different up till, I think 2010 models, (hoping for correction here if wrong) but today they are the same height stock.
