Liberty rims and tires on Patriot?

I was told by a friend that the slightly larger Liberty rims and tires fit perfectly on the Patriot with no clearance problems. Has anyone done this? If so, what year Liberty tires will work?

They both have a 5 x 4.5 hole pattern with a high positive offset. Larger in what way? Patriots use 16 & 17 inch wheels and the Compass uses 17 & 18 inch wheels.

I have the stock 16 inch rims on my Patriot. I would be going to 2004 stock Jeep Liberty rims and tires. Therefore both the rim size and tire size increase. Rims would be 17 inches and a the tires size would be one size larger, I think.

Here are the tire sizes that fit. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f98/o...ml#post4104384 You still need to stay under a 29" tire (I'm running 29.1 andit wordes fine0 and as long as the offeset is close you should be fine.
