  1. Suspension and Tires
    I have a 17' Patriot with 17" rims and was wondering if there are compatibility issues between the stock rims and a marginally larger tire. i was planning on getting 235/65r17 Open Country A/T III's along with spacers and/or a lift on it, leaning closer to spacers but i only know the basic pros...

    Hey Y’all, I have a 2012 jeep patriot latitude 2wd. I have this clunking noise coming from the driver side tire area and I cannot figure out what it is at all. It is usually when i go over bumps, especially the littlest ones. I did the wobble test while i had it jacked up, grabbing the wheel...
  3. Suspension and Tires
    Hi, new to this forum and have a question about my beloved Jeep Patriot sport 4x4 2008 model. It currently has 215/60 R17 tyres but they don't look like they belong. On investigation I found that 215/65 R17 tyres were the original tyre according to the internet. Thought I would ask a group of...

  5. Newbie Check-In
    Not sure what happened but small piece of tire came off and you can see a small bubble or bump on side of tire. Thoughts on if this may need replaced? I’m taking to shop this week to check but curious until then. Probably can’t tell via picture

    Hey, My Jeep Patriot has just started sounding loud, like driving over a bad grating road. The handling seems the same. The engine runs quiet when stopped. The brakes seem to work the same. As you go faster, it gets louder. I walked along side outside as the car moved slowly. Might be...

    I recently put air in my tires because of the cold weather and they were at 27 and 28 PSI and my warning light on my dashboard never went off. I just happened to get air on my own to be safe. What are troubleshooting steps to fix this? I wasn't sure if it was something easy that needed reset...

    I hit a pothole about 2 weeks ago i'd say and i'm not sure if it's the reason, but i have a small bump on my tire. i have my car inspection in 2 weeks and hoping to wait until then to get it looked at. I have had a tire bubble before where i had to get it replaced but this time, the bump is...
  9. Suspension and Tires
    I just got my tires rotated. Overall they have about 5700 miles on them. i rotated them at about 3000 then again now at 5700 miles. Now the tire place said they are wearing much faster than they should and they are not good for 4 wheel drive vehicles. They said they'll probably need pro...

  11. Electrical and Audio
    Just a little note from the beginning I have never had any tire pressure sensors for my 09 'riot since I have gotten it. So I would expect the chime when first turning her on and seeing the TPMS light on, but at times (its fairly random, hit or miss when I turn it on) the vehicle security light...
  12. Suspension and Tires
    I recently got new brakes, rotors, tie rods, and an alignment. I was making a sharp turn, and the tire rubbed against the inside frame of my 2008 Jeep Patriot. Small pieces of the tire shredded off a little bit. I took it back to the shop, and they claim they have no idea what the problem is...

    I just got a tire fixed a week ago. They said it happens with aluminum wheels especially once the temp changes. It looks like since last night it went from 35 psi to about 32psi. it did drop to the 20s in temp outside. The tire they put a bead around to seal, could it have not worked or...
  14. Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    This morning i was going to work and my tire light came on. So the temp dropped intno 30's this morning but i check the tires and i looked at the one and a chunk had been cut off. It's a smooth cut and only one one of the treads but it's smooth and flat. Is this dangerous on one tire? i'd...
  15. Suspension and Tires
    I posted this the other day, but somehow it posted twice, but admin deleted the original post and kept the one that I tried to delete. Anyway..... My tires looked low, but my TPMS alarm did not go off. Checked tires and sure enough one was down to 23psi. So what would cause my TPMS to fail...

  18. Jeep Patriot General Discussion

  19. Suspension and Tires
    If I go from the 215/60/R17 Firestone Affinity to the 225/65/R17 Firestone Destination LE2 will I notice much difference on/off-road? Also aside from the speedometer retuning which I may not get done because I can adjust to it, what else will I need to do? Thanks for the help
