Arugh! Now I have all these idea's floating in my head!! Lower the Compass, put SRT 4 Caliber rims with a low profile tire! None of these idea's will actually be put to good use! But its nice to dream right?

Anyway, Been searching around on the net for the last couple hours I think I'm sold on the 225/55/18's as my replacement tire. I will have to get something different because Good Year doesn't make the GT's in the size I want. So now it's a toss up of which all season tire performs well and will give a smooth ride and last 50,000 + miles.

Hey Matt. I noticed at the Tirerack they have the tires your looking for in the 225/60/18.
I know you want te 55 series. The 225/60/18 just happen to have a $40 rebate right this minute if you were to go with the 225/60/18 tires. I think it is an exclusive rebate between Goodyear and Tirerack.

Just food for thought.

I saw, I'm a visual person when it comes to purchases. I really am going to need to see a 60 sidewall 18 inch tire on the Compass to really make a solid decision. The patriot view isn't going to cut it for me

Instead now I have all these pictures/idea's in my head of OoOo Maybe this would look good or that would maybe look good. I need to stay the course and just find a picture of MY Jeep with a 225/60/18 tire on a Rallye Rim. There are 400 million people living in the US. I can't be the only person looking for this perticular tire on this perticular rim. The internet say's otherwise!

Out of curiosity, are there any members here that have used a 235/55 with good results?

My current scenario is that I have a nice set of 18x8.5" wide wheels that I'd like to get tires for and put on the Compass in place of the stock 17's. With the rim being 8.5" wide, a 235 is the narrowest option I'm comfortable using.

The wheels have a +42mm offset. Is there any possibility of squeezing a 245/50/18 on there? If not, I'd like your opinions on the 235/55. Thanks!
