What kind of use will your vehicle see besides winter? On road or off?

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.

Be careful. From what I have read many/most 15" rims will not fit on the Patriot due to brake issues( caliper/rotors ).

discount fitted some to my pat a while back, and they had no issues at all:

and since I go off roading so much, it would make more sense to have a smaller wheel. more sidewall means less likely to pinch a side, or slice it on a rock. (something I haven't done yet, yay!)

The inexpensive Wranglers Wally's sells were a huge disappointment for me, about 25k mile tires. No experience with the others.

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.

Why do you feel they are "pure JUNK!"

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.

Biggest question, where do the tires say they are made. I have heard mixed review on this brand so I always stayed clear of them as alot of them are made in china.

Is this question about the Goodyear Wrangler tires or the Sumitomo Tires?

Only Goodyear tire I've seen grom overseas are the stock tires that roll off the lot on a new vehicle. I was referring to the Sumo tires you purchased.

I checked out the Sumo site; which tires did you get? None of the tires on the site looked like they would visually fit with the Patriot.
