2010 Patriot - Need new tires

I've got 55k on the original Goodyear Wrangler SR-As. I've never liked them. What tires are you running?

My compass came with firehawk GTA's, can't remember if they're GTA 02 or 03. They ride fine, but I think are a bit on the noisy side, you don't notice it running around town, but after an hour or two on the road you get ear fatigue. Anything you can do to minimize the additional these vehicles down is certainly a bonus.

My Compass came with Firestone Affinity tires, which were OK... but when it came time to replace them, I looked elsewhere. I found a really great deal on Hankook Optimo H727 tires, I believe it is; there was a "buy three, get the fourth free" deal and Pepboys had an additional rebate on top of that. They also got some of the best reviews on tirerack.com. I have less than 10,000 miles on mine so I can't give much feedback, but I've been happy with them so far.

When my wife's get up there, I plan on replacing them with some mild A/T tires. Much better in the winter around here.

So far, I am eyeing the Yokohama Geolandar AT/S. About the only tires in her size range that are A/T, thank goodness they get pretty decent reviews. I wish they made the Hancook Dynapro ATM tires in her size. Those are some nice tires.

tires

I recently replace my OEM Wranglers at 30,000 miles. I have had them before on another car & was not impressed. Bought some new Hankook Optimo 727 due to their low price & high mileage rating. First set of Hankook's I have had. They are noticably quieter & smoother than the Wranglers.

Thanks all...I'll check your suggestions out. I was thinking about the Hankook Optimo H727s...or the Bridgestone Blizzac WS60s. Thought about Tirerack, but thru Walmart, it's free ship-to-store.

215-65-17. Quite a difference between the Blizzak's & the Optimo.

Ok gotcha. I do tons of highway miles for work. I easily do 30,000+ miles a year but I live in the Northeast so I want to be decent in the winter.

My wife drives it now 100% of the time. Street/road driving. Since it's FWD, I won't dare off road it We get some snow in Chicagoland, so it will need a little bite.

100% on road. Went with Michelin Hydroedge also changed the stock 16" steel wheels out for 17" allow. A lot more tire choices and lower prices.
These are really quiet and great wet traction.

When my OEM Goodyear SRA's wore out I bought Cooper CS4 Touring tires in 215/65/17. I do a lot of driving on roads so this summer I bought the Hankook Optimo H727's after the Coopers finally wore out. I was happy with both brands of All Season tires for their intended purpose, but I admit that I use our 99 Cherokee with rugged winter tires for deer hunting. A tire like the Yokohama Geolander AT/S would be my choice if I did more off/road and less highway driving with our Patriot. I think the compromise with an AT type tire is rougher riding, more noise, and more tendency towards cupping without frequent rotation.

I just put a set of Cooper Weathermasters on my 09 Sunday. Look like a good tread for ice and snow. I drive 3 1/2 miles of uphill mountain roads so needed something to get me to the top of the mountain.

Made the decision...just bought the Hankook H727 off tire rack. Good reviews, good snow/ice traction. Thru tire rack, it comes with a good manufacture's warranty. Pep boys offered a buy 3 get 1 free, but it forced a $16.75/tire warranty. No warranty, no rebate. All in all, I will save around $60 on the complete purchase + installation.
