You think they might rub especially since the spring perch was removed but no they dont I tested multiple flexing all the way around. The front springs at full compression still stop where the spring perch use to be.

Also with the spaces on I clear the springs completely and at full compression I still have inches inbetween the tire and top of the wheel well.

So 33s are a possibility definitely a 32 but I would try to find like a 32x9.5 or 33x 9.5 that way it reduces modes to the wheel-well when you go full lock either that or get thicker wheel spacers and better back spacing wheels but you probably would need fender flares at that point. which I say we should go for it. The patriot is missing solid axels and the v6. wish the Pat was setup like the older Cherokees.

So here are some more Pics of my Pat

these are right at 31 inch tires, notice the picture drivers side rear the one with my hand in it. there is only about 1.25in of space
before hitting the wheel-well. Probably could fit a 32 under here. we will see because Im going to go bigger.

Yes the tires are not a wide aggressive stance but they are still 31's

Question, will this lift kit fit my 2015 patriot? The fitment guide says no, but has the suspension changed since 2011? Thanks for any help.

Yes this will fit the suspension stays the same from 2011 through 2015. They need to update that info.


Thanks for the answer. I see that people who buy the RRO lift say that they get different rear adjustment links from moog. Would that be smart for me to do if I purchase this kit?

Even more pics

first time next to another patriot.

You can definitely see the lift difference.

Stock Height 9" inches... now has right at 15" inches. I have exactly 4 inches gained between the tire and lift combo.

This is a FDI next to me in white.

Next I will be fitting some 235\85\16 the tires that I have looked at are 31.8 inches tall which is considers a 32 inch ...........I currently run 30.7 and considered a 31 inch tire from online tire stores.

This tire would be another inch in height but cut in half due to center circumference I would gain a half an inch in ride Height clearance that would put me close to 16 inches of clearance. I currently clear 15.25 inches of clearance.

This will be the tallest tire that will be able to fit under the PATs that are lifted. a 33 is to big for the back wheelwell it will rub all the way around modding the wheelwell slightly would work.... Gas mileage to definitely go down with a 33.

Im averaging 20-21 mpg total with my current lift and tire setup, Im all highway 25 miles one way I do drive 80mph to and from work so I could improve MPGs but Im not worried about it.

Sorry for pulling up an old thread. How is the OP's lift and jeep? Im looking to install 32x7.5s according to the OP and his finding I wouldn't need to run a spacer. And possibly not have to cut the spring mount.

Big Tires = Problems sooner than later. Torque specs for Patriot are dsymal. CVT not gonna be happy nor manual transmission gonna be happy. Whole drive train gonna be sad. Driver= Happy til jeep breaks. Then ?...

Lol... though I'm aware that bigger tires are more stress on the patriot.... as long as you are gentle? No? Lol

I'm gonna just make myself feel better about putting bigger tires, by telling myself that OP's issue was the lift and not the tires 😅
And hence, I'm going with the stu coils lol
