The most common tire used on the other jeep patriot site in stock sizes would be the Yokohama geolander ats tires for sure. Haven't heard anything negative about them. Other people take the opportunity to go up or down in wheel diameter, to increase tire choices. I for one will get a set of 15" rims so I can get a set of mt tires.

I highly recommend staying away from walmart tires, especially the goodyear wrangler territory as they ate Made For Walmart exclusive tires and do no meet true goodyear quality specs. As for the SRA wrangler I was a bit dissapointed when I ordered my compass with the OWL A/T tire package and it rolled out with these "street" tires. However they are definatly not as bad as others are stating considering ive ran mine hard in the true north winter of Canada and have not missed a beat whatsoever. 15000 km so far and to be quite honest the tires dont look worn at all. I wouldnt doubt achieving 50k or more easily. It really depend on what you are looking to use them for, hwy or offroad. As for myself I will be looking into the Wrangler D7ratrac size option as these tires are a beautiful mix for what I need, decently agressive tread pattern, very appealing appearance, quality brand and as for being a GOODforaYEAR, you sir must drive alot considering I run these on our f350 diesel 4x4 thay spends 7mnths of the year towing a S130 Bobcat and the remainder being a plow truck with a full size sander mounted to the front and a 9ft V-plow on the front. All this and with proper tire rotation we will definatly see 60-70k out of them. Put about 40+k a year so 8 guess you could call them GoodYearNaHalfs lol.
Ok, here's an update... I decided not to get the Goodyear Wrangler tires. I went with another brand called Sumitomo tires. Nobody knew anything about these tires when I first got them, but I wanted something with a pretty aggressive tread pattern and a decent life span. These tires fit that bill at least as far as the agressive tread pattern goes. The life span is still yet to be determined as i've only put about 5,000 or so miles on them so far. They are rated at 75,000mi.
