I just bought a 2009 Patriot 4x4 sport. It currently has 215/65 r17. I also own an 06 wrangler and want to swap the tires and wheels from the Wrangler to the Patriot. I found the lug pattern to be the same but the Wrangler has 245/75 r16. Can anyone tell me what mods I would need to do to the Patriot to make those work?

Most likely a lift, pinch weld mod, possibly wheel spacers, and maybe cutting off the spring perch on the strut.

This thread will give you an idea:

Doing a search for that tire size might turn up some more:

Be aware that adding a lift can cause issues with drive-line vibration due to increased axle angles, ride and handling problems, and alignment issues.
