If you've got the aluminum rims like I do, no they won't. Stock tire size is 215/65R17, if I remember correctly. If he's selling the rims with the tires? As long as they are five-lug rims, it *MAY* fit. I would ask him if you could take your jeep over and make sure that the rim lines up with your bolts.

no idea what the fusion bolt pattern is, but the one on a patriot is a 5x4.5 (5x114.3). then you have to make sure the rim clears the brakes, which is no mean feat. if the bolt pattern is the same and the rim clears the brakes, you should be good. Those tires would be really small on the patriot and look kinda funny... I would only get them if super super cheap.

Geolander ATS Tires are very popular on the other jeep patriot dot com site. might be a good place to ask, as you will probably get a good response.
