  1. Tire upgrades

    Newbie Check-In
    Hey all, I have a 2016 Patriot and I would like to put the 2" leveling kit on it and get some meatier tires. Some people have suggested going down to a 15" rim and getting tires for that. Is this viable? Any recommendations help. I'm new to modifying my car.

    Engine and Drivetrain
    Hi all, Within the last 24 hours (Wednesday) I have started hearing a rotating knocking noise that sounds like it is related to wheel rotation speed around my front driver side wheel.

    Hello All I have 2007 Jeep Patriot I bought a year ago, that has been awesome. Unfortunately, recently there has been a problem.

  6. FS: 2 sets 1.5" 67.1mm hubcentric wheel spacers (4 total with mounting lugs)

    The Outpost
    I purchased these wheel spacers less then 2 weeks ago. I ended up needing to purchase a new wheel with a different offset so I removed the wheel spacers. They are hub centric for the Patriot 67.1mm hub. Solid fit, no vibrations and comes with all mounting lugs. I would prefer to sell both sets...
  7. wheel weights

    Jeep Patriot General Discussion
    i'm curious but only 3 of my 4 tires have wheel weights on them. should all 4 have them or can this be possible? the tire without the weight was balanced the most recent (prob 6 months ago) because it had a bubble on it and was replaced
  8. quick spacer question

    Suspension and Tires
    so from what i've gathered, the best spacer is 1.25 inch, or 32mm. nobody has mentioned their studs hitting their wheels. does this mean the spacers are thick enough so the stock studs dont protrude, or are you guys shaving your studs and not mentioning it. looking at getting these...

    Our 2014 Jeep Patriot has a squeal in the rear driver side wheel. It is loudest when moving in reverse. The noise occurs when the brake is not pressed. We have verified the emergency brake is not engaged. It can be heard the most when backing out of parking spaces or moving forward at stop...

  12. Wheel sizing finnaly answered, hopefully..

    Suspension and Tires
    I have commented on the knowledge base but no one has commented back, Ive gone around and asked multiple different tire and wheel companies on what wheels would fit, They have all said that a 16x7 with 0 offset and 4 inch backspacing will not work, one said that it would work it would just...
