Official wheel and tire thread

Hopefully a moderator can make this a sticky

As more and more people buy the 2nd generation Compass, questions on wheel and tire options will continue to pour in. Let's make a thread for people to reference and get pictures and information in 1 place. Those with knowledge and experience, please list specs for wheels and tires that can be used. Also include pictures of your own setups and whether or not you needed modifications to make it work. So far I've been able to establish that the bolt pattern is 5x110. What about offset range and the corresponding tires size?

It looks better on a Compass than the Cherokee.

Yes, I love the Cherokee rims on the Compass. Would fit a Renegade, too, I think.

Why didn’t you put 235/65/17?

Because that is too big that it will show too much of an error on the speedometer.

Looks good @10-64 but, may I ask why you went with a narrower tire? Mine has 225's from the factory, and you have even wider rims (7.5" vs 7") so you could have gone with upto 235

The Nokian Hakkapeliitta's didn't come in that size, as far as I know.
This is what they came up with for that tire, regarding size

That name's a mouthful

Fair enough though. I'd like to eventually put a small lift and larger tires on mine, so was just curious if there was something I was overlooking.

Welp.....that didn't go as planned. Wheels won't clear front caliper.

17x7
41mm offset

My compass came with 18" wheel. Is caliper bigger than those that came with 17"?

I thought about that but it's my wife's car and I don't know if I'm comfortable with that. She'd have a fit if she knew I did. I'm also cautious of the warranty too. That option is still in play though. Any suggestions on brand or thickness?

Next option is back to square 1 and getting the wheel like yours.

This is starting to look like my route. I'm undecided on spacer type though. I want just enough clearance for the caliper. I'm not looking for a wide or flush look. I have been and will keep looking through renegade forums to see what kind of experience people have had. I don't think anyone here has reported using spacers on a 2nd Gen Compass. Any input or suggestions? Whichever style i get, I will be getting quality units.

Grind the caliper where you need clearance

I saw that being done but I'm not going to do it. Wouldn't want to give the dealer any reason to reject any issues I may have while under warranty. That would be a very visible and obvious change

I have read of people using spacers on wranglers. You only need 5mm or less. You'll be fine.

Going to order some longer lug bolts and see how these work. Hopefully my Cherokee wheels will then clear the front calipers. Website says this part # is 5mm but box says 10mm. Does that just mean 10mm added width overall? 5mm on each side?

I had 1.25" spacers on my last car. Get something quality and properly install them and you'll be fine

I purchased the H&R spacers above. Any reason to not consider them quality? My Ford Flex is lowered on H&R springs. That's my only experience with them but i've had no problems with them.

Nope, the H&R are quality, and you're doing it right with the longer bolts/studs . It was more a post for anyone else considering spacers.

Looks like they are 10mm, wide you can always measure them to make sure.
Looks like a very quality product, Very smart to get the longer lug bolts.
See no reason why your new wheels won't work now with these spacers.
Should be a very nice looking vehicle with those wheels and a slightly wider stance.
