07 Patriot Question

I've searched a few places and have gotten conflicting stories now. My mother-in-law is wanting another set of rims for her 07 patriot (to use with her winter tires). I found a set on craigslist, well so I thought. I thought the ad said compass, but I read it again, and it states dodge caliber. Now it looks like the bolt pattern, backspacing, size / width are all the same. Caliber has the 67.1 hub opening, which the patriot does too. Now after searching I've seen some people say that caliber rims fit, and others say it won't???? Any input would be great. I don't the the patriot within driving distance of me, so i can just mock up the caliber rim and try one.

The standard Caliber SE and SXT had disc front/drum rear brakes and used 15" rims on the SE and 17" on the SXT. We' been trying to get someone to do a test fit with the the 15"'s to see if they will clear the rear disc brake. No takers yet.

I believe the 17" rims will fit on the MK's but again, nobodies tried it. If you do check the fit, you will only need to check it on the rear.

Not sure if that really helps or not.

Well I stopped by a nationwide chain tire store, and they ran some figures for me. This is for 17" patriot rims vs 17" caliber rims, they are exactly the same.

Both 17x6.5
5x4.5 bp
67.1 for the hub opening
If anything the caliber BS is 1/2" less - it's closer to 5", vs I believe the Patriot is 5.5".

Mother-in-law here, and tried out the caliber rim on her patriot. Again for anyone this is a 17" vs 17" only -- it does work, appears they are exact in all aspects.
