Tires for Comapss?

Ive been harrassing a friend who manages Cassidy Tire for some tires for my 07 Compass. The problem we ran into is size issues which limits my choices. What kind of tires do you guys use for yours? What Im lookin for are some good tires to use off road and daily on the street. Id like to have something thats fairly quiet as well.

For the winter i have Bridgestone Blizzak DM-V1s and I LOVE THEM. Did great in the 2.5 feet i just got here in NH.. so much fun!!! but thats just for snow tires. And they are much quieter than the stock eagle LX2s i had.

Hankook H727

I just put a set of Hankook H727 225/60R17's on my 2011 Compass and my Daughters 2007 Patriot. They sure ride and handle a lot better than the Fstones that came with it. Did a lot of research on this site and others saying they are a good all season tire. The way the weather is getting already I am sure I am going to find out soon.

Keep me posted on how they do if you would. I loved my Hankook winter ipikes when I had em on a previous car. Hankook seems to make good tires. Decisions, decisions haha

I have just put a set of Nokian WGr2's P225-60-17 on my '07 Compass 4x4. They are all-weather plus tires. I find them very quiet compared to the original tires. Had a set of the original Wg's on a previous vehicle, and they were very good in all weather conditions.They are expensive, but worth it in my opinion. Snowflake symbol, and mountain symbol are on the sidewall.

Back in the day I had 235/65/17 yokohama ATs that did excellent while I lived in kodiak AK. I liked them so much I put a set on my 04 durango. Now that I have the WK I am thinking about a set for it aswell....I did have the RRO lift on the compass but I ran with this size tire for several months before the lift and had zero issues minus some minor rubbing at full lock, solution was don't go full lock and it worked out fine.

You think those Yokohamas could fit on a patriot?

Most probably. Check the stickies up top for pics and the sizes list that Gramps put together.
