The stock steel wheel is 16", I believe 6.5" wide. The tire that comes on that wheel is 205/70R16. If you want to go with a wider tire, Moabs look great on the Patriot.

You could always opt for the fancy pants alloy wheels but they are 17's and have less tread pattern options available.

I have a bad habit of always spending 2 grand or so on aftermarket wheels/tires as soon as I get a new car. I specifically got the upgraded 17" wheels on my Patriot so that I didn't have to do that. I really like the gray 17" 5-spoke wheels. This will be the first vehicle I have owned that I didn't put aftermarket wheels on.

use the 'tire rack' website for your tire sizes.

i'm putting 16" Pat steelys on my Compass so i can get some BFG All Terrains. not sure yet what i'll go with, but i'm leaning towards a 235/70R16.

29-29.5" tall tires are about the max you can put on your "MK" without mods. even the RRO lift kit doesn't help that much with a taller tire.

have fun tire shopping.......

as many time s that i have read thru the owners manual..i have
not been able to ascertain the offset of the OEM 16" wheel..

i have seen on the Discount Tire s website several wheels and
they mostly have wheels with a 40 or 42 offset..

any help on this?
