Hi All,

I currently have my stock patriot rims, and have plasti dipped them, but they still look whimpy.

I am wanting to put on some new rims.

Question:

1) Does any other JEEP OEM wheels fit on the Patriot?
I think it might be cool to put on some Rubicon rims for example in they fit.

2) Does anyone know of any after market rims that may beef up the look of the patriot that aren't too pricey?

These are 15x8 OEM TJ rims. They fit without issues, and depending on the tire you may not need spacers. I often see them on CL for anywhere from $150 and up for a set of 4.

Sorry for being a noob, but what does TJ stand for?

Also im trying to get so beefier tires on the Pat too. I think the stock wheels are 15's already no?

"TJ" refers to the 1997–2006 Wrangler model.

The stock rims are 16" steel or 17" alloy.

Here you can see some 15" rim and tire combo selections.

This is a good resource:

As stated the stock rims are either 16 or 17" You'll find much better off road tires that will fit on a 15" vs the stock tires. and if you go wider than say 225, you'll want to get spacers with your stock rims or get a rim with a different off set that pushes the wheels out. I have 245/65-17's right now, but when they wear out, I wanna get a set of 15s with a set of MT tires, and put some road tires on my 17" tires.
