New Cooper tires

Hello everyone. I'm a new member to the forum. I have a 2007 Patriot Limited FWD. Today I got rid of those HORRIBLE Goodyear Wranglers and had Cooper CS4 T99's installed. What a HUGE difference in the ride. It feels like a completely different vehicle. Smooth and quiet.

Thanks;
Tom

I just put a cheaper Uniroyal Liberator A/T Tire on my wife's Liberty to replace the horrible Wrangler STs. Immediate difference in ride and handling. Tires can make an enormous difference.

I have the Cooper CS4 "T" tires in 215/65/17 size and they are quiet and smooth but I put the winter Michelins on when the first snowflake hits the ground.

I've got a 2007 Patriot Limited also. Did y'all change sizes or did you keep the P215/65/R17? I need a few new tires & was wondering if a slightly larger tire would work or if it would be a problem. These wranglers are pretty noisy for as smooth of tread as they have it seems.

Thanks, Chuck

215/65/17 is the OEM size of the trail rated model and is optional on other Patriots. The dealer can program the speedometer for this maximum diameter of 28 inches. You can put bigger tires on the Patriot but reach a point where rubbing will occur.

Yeah it looked like there wasn't a lot more room with as low as they sit. So you're saying you got a smoother & quieter ride using the truck tire from Cooper? I was thinking about just going slightly larger with like a 225 70 17.

Original tire size

The original Wranglers were 215/65R17. While they were ok in the snow, the rest of the time they were awful. Coopers are really nice. Time will tell though once winter in Cleveland hits. May have to buy a spare set of rims and snow tires. The ride with the Coopers is 100% improved over the Wranglers. Extremely smooth and quiet.

The Cooper CS4 "T" is a passenger car Touring tire and not a truck tire. Gramps has a sticky with all kinds of info on tires and what fits and does not fit.
