2011 Jeep Compass New 16" wheels & 225/75/16 AT Tires
My new wheels and tires are in and love them!! Here is the breakdown.
2011 Jeep Compass Latitude 4x4. Originally had 17x6.5 OEM wheels and 215/60/17 tires. The OEM offset is about 40mm and sits closer to the suspension. So if you added 225 wide tires it will most likely rub the inside wheel well.
I ordered my Wheels and Tires from Americas Tire.
Wheels: 16x8 Pro Comp Series 31 with 0 offset. The off set pushed the wheel 1 inch away from the suspension and the outer rim is 2 inches further out. The wheels stick out just a bit and I love this look. I paid $110 per tire.
Tires: 225/75/16 Cooper AT3 tires. Overall Diameter is 29.1. Some TA tires that are same size are 29.3 which makes a difference. I recommend you go to Tire Rack and for the exact measurement. For AT tires they are great and quiet and not bad. They were even more quiet than regular pair of non TA tires I had. I paid $116 per wheel. I know this was a risk because I saw many posts saying only 70's is the max fit, however I learned that the Jeep Patriot is basically the same frame and saw posts on their forums that some had used 75's.
*No Lift kit - ARGGHHHHH RRO!! LOL
*No spacers - Because the wheel offsets at "0" it pushes the wheel out about 2 inches.
*No rubbing - Even at full turn there is no rubbing because the offset pushes the rim out just enough. To be safe I will work on hammering in the inner weld piece that sticks out because although it don't rub at turns, there is a less than a finger thickness width between the tire and wheel weld piece. If I had 29.3 tires in diameter i think it would rub and I would be pounding the wheel weld piece. Tire Rack was the only place I could find the exact details.
2 inch lift - Rocky Road Outfitters (RRO) has on backlogged and I'm on week 2 waiting and they said it may be 2 weeks more.
Paint: Hood Stripe and painting top roof and upper trim around windows black. (yes I'm copying its newer younger brother)
Appreciate the feedback.
