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.
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'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.
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.

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.
