235/70 16 on stock wheels on FDI 2012 any rub?

I'm running 215/70s now and I know 225/70s fit with no rub but is there anyone running 235/70 on a stock FDI MK 2012 or otherwise? Is there any rubbing whatsoever on the pinch weld, or struts, or anywhere else. Thanks in advance.

I'm also wondering this....I'm possibly buying a Patriot today and I have a good set of Cooper Discoverer AT/3 235/70/16 and I'd like to know if I can throw em on there without rub.... if nobody knows, then I suppose I'll be the first to try it

Looking at the specs on tire rack at the 3 tire sizes (215/70/16 v.s. 225/70/16 v.s. 235/70/16)

size-------sec/w------trd/w-------diam
215/70-----8.7---------6.4--------27.8
225/70-----9.0---------6.5--------28.7
235/70-----9.5---------6.9--------29.2

I ran 245/65-17 tires, which were 29.5ish inches tall, and they rubbed like crazy until I was lifted and had spacers...

16”

205/70R16" - 27.3" – Very Poor selection
215/65R16" - 27.2 - Good Selection
215/70R16" - 27.85” - Good tire selection
225/65R16" – 27.5” – Poor selection
225/70R16" – 28.4” – Excellent selection
225/75R16” – 29.3" – Excellent selection Max
235/60R16” – 27.1” – Excellent selection
235/65R16” – 28” – Poor selection
235/70R16” – 28.95” – Excellent selection
245/70R16" - 29.5" - Excellent selection - confirmed fit!

Just found this in another thread.... looks like we're good to go with the 235/70/16

Let us know if you get the patriot and what it looks like and If the 235/70 s rub at all. Check this guy out looks like a non lifted riot to me on 235/70s saw another guy on the forum say that he ran 235/65 on a non lifted 09' riot 2wd with no rub.

I did indeed buy the Patriot yesterday..... drove it over 450 miles in 24 hrs.... Ithaca, NY to Lakewood, NJ.... then back up to Neversink, NY..... didn't get a chance to calculate the mileage yet but I'm hoping mid to upper 20's..it was 90% highway, 65-75 mph.....

2012 MK Sport.....Mineral gray.... 35K miles....4X4....2.4......CVT...

Looks great! I also have a 2012 mineral gray FDI w/CVT had it 3 months got it with 34K sitting at 37k right now averaging 22 mpg I'm running 215/70s on it now and a Hooker Super Comp Muffler. Can't wait to hear if your 235/70s Fit without rubbing or not. 2012 Jeep Patriot FDI

Sorry to resurrect an old thread. My wife crushed a stock 16" steel wheel and tire. Rather than spend almost 150 for 2 new tires, I decided she needed more rubber between her and the ground. Originally she had 215/65/16 tires.

I was able to fit 235/65/16 with zero rubbing! These are almost an Inch wider and over an inch taller. They fill the wheel well much nicer too. Looks more like a jeep even though it's only a 2.4l 2wd lol

Pics attached.


My ride is a hemi commander QDII though

I ran them for about a year and 235/70R16's do rub with an aggressive all terrain tire when you cut the wheel as far as it can go...... I am downsizing to a 225/70/16 snow tire for the winter.

I recently purchased a 2011 Jeep North Edition 4x4 and am also looking to get a set of 235/70R16's. Would this size fit for my Jeep as well? I notice your models are a bit different.

The tires I am looking at aren't too aggressive and can get them second hand at a decent price, these are them new:

Any help would be appreciated as winter is coming soon!

Thanks!
