Any opinion on how they ride, if they're noisy, how they are in the snow and if they get any rubbing in the tire well? Also, the other tires I'm considering are the Yokohama Geolander A/T G015 in 225/65R17 and the General Grabber HTS if I'm going to go the highway tire route.

Thanks in advance for any advice/input.
I had the Yokohama G015, they are nice. The ride was smooth and not noisy at all. Rode them in the snow we had and I didnt have any issues not driving around in the icy spots. Had one slip but not enough to say they aren't worth getting. Good on dry, wet, snow and icy roads.

I've got a 2011 sport. I added a 2" Rough Country lift and 245/65/17 tires. The only rub I get is when I turn all the way into the lock and am on an un even surface at the same time. Even then, it's a very minimal rub on the inside edge of the tire. A one inch wheel spacer will completely eliminate this.

Wow! Those KO-2s look amazing on your stock Patriot. I had KO-2s on a Wrangler that I have since sold and was very impressed with them. I may have to get rid the all seasons that came with my Patriot (recently bought used) sooner than anticipated.

I stuck a set of 225/75/16 Wintermark studded snow tires on my 08 with stock rims. They clear just fine, but definitely noisier than stock.

Goodyear efficientgrip SUVs 225/65/17

After plenty of reading on these forums I have just put on a set of 225/65/17 Goodyear efficientgrip SUVs on my 2014 Jeep Patriot Limited from the original 215/60/17.

I went with a less aggressive tyre being my first modification and never having ATs before so I went with SUV HTs instead. I wanted to keep a low road noise and fuel economy as I drive to work on highway everyday.

I can confirm there is no rubbing so far and I am happy with how it was driving from the tyre shop to work today.

Thank you for all of the community posts on helping with the decision making.
