  1. Tire Choice

    Suspension and Tires
    I just bought out the lease of my 2016 FD1, and the stock 225/60/17 Kumhos gotta go. I want to get all-terrain 225/65/17 as I heard it won't rub. I mostly do on road, but wanna get into the occasional off roading, and be confident in the snow. I don't think I want the BFG K02 because I'm usually...
  2. Quiet Tires?

    Suspension and Tires
    Hi All, Brand new to the forum and the Patriot. A little about me: Im a big time Miata fan, been driving them since 1990, first model year. It took about 2 secs to realize that even being single, the Miata is ridiculously impractical so Ive always owned a second car. Just gave my 1999 Grand...
  3. What are the biggest tires I can put on my Patriot with 69mm wheel space?

    Suspension and Tires
    I am sorry for asking this as it drives most crazy but my question is a little different. I can quickly find what the biggest tires I can put on my Jeep are if it were stock but I am having trouble finding anything about bigger tires for non-stock Jeeps. Between my aftermarket rims and my...

    Suspension and Tires
    I have a 2014 Jeep Patriot Latitude. I'm having the Rough Country 2 inch leveling kit installed later in the month and i'm looking for answers on modifications that need to be done. I plan on getting 235/65/r17's on the stock wheels that came with the latitude since they're good looking and...
  6. Is it possible to lift a 2x4 Jeep Patriot?

    4X2 Patriot Discussion
    So I have the 2017 75th anniversary jeep patriot. and I was curious if it was possible to lift it. I know that lift kits only work on the 4x4, but is there some way to lift a 2x4. Like using spacers or something. Also curious what the biggest tires that the stock rims could fit without any...

  8. Wheel Help Needed

    Suspension and Tires
    So I have a 2014 Patriot and I'm looking to get some aggressive looking wheels on there. However, I'm honestly not very knowledgeable as to what size wheels and tires work with each other. I'm pretty much going for the look that @jeepmk22 has on instagram. I like the tires but I want a...
  9. What should be my level of concern?

    Suspension and Tires
    I just picked up some new tires and rims, and of course I went larger for the tires. I went with a 235/70/16 and a 16-8" rim with 4" backspacing. I currently have 2" wheel spacers installed. Wheels=Pro Comp Alloys Series 69 16/8" - 4" backspacing Tires= Falken Wildpeak AT3W 235/70/16 109t I...
  10. Wheels

    Suspension and Tires
    So, I recently bought Motegi Racing rims for my 2012 Jeep Patriot and I've done a bit of research as far as everything that I need to do before I actually get them installed on to my vehicle. The wheels are 8inches in width, 17inch diameter, offset of 35mm and center bore of roughly 72.6mm or...
  11. Tire Recommandations?

    Suspension and Tires
    Hey everyone, Looking for some direction on new tires for my 2014 Latitude. Looking for something good in the snow. Studdable would be nice but certainly isn't necessary. Tire Rack seems to have a lot of good options for a nice price, but wanted to check in here and see if anyone had a...
  12. Max tire size on stock 2014 patriot latitude?

    Suspension and Tires
    Will tires with a 29" diameter fit decently on a stock 2014 patriot latitude? I don't really ever make U turns or try to make sharp turns in general. I know that the pinch weld mod will most likely have to be done which is fine by me. I'm considering the kuhmo Road ventures AT51 235/65r17 29"...

    Newbie Check-In
    Got to do this newbie thing so here it is...I got a 2014 Jeep patriot latitude this past spring. Honestly couldn't be happier with the vehicle. It rides so much better than my beat to crap 2000 Subaru outback (RIP suby). I have big plans for my patriot which include making it the perfect summer...

    My wife has the Wrangler SR-A's original equipment tires on her '09 Pat Sport. Just over 21,000 miles (that's right, 21 thousand) & it's time to replace them due to little snow traction left on the tread (she's a pretty good driver but actually got stuck in 4 wheel drive on our street). We live...

    Suspension and Tires
    My 2011 Jeep Patriot began making a rubbing noise from the front end about a couple of months ago, at every speed. The sound is more pronounced at higher speeds and almost sounds like a quieter version of driving on rumble strips (not as loud or high degree of vibration, but similar). The ball...
