Tyler-98-W68 Here is what 245/55/19 tires look like on my compass now

LordReddawg It mainly from people try on trial and error I think 245/75/17 Comes in around 31 in on the compass 30 is about as big u can go with out doing fender wheel mods

jaketsnake I have every intention of lifting my '07 what do you think of 245/75/r17 with stock wheel will this work with spacers? How do you know what size to get?

LordReddawg Im getting my 235/65/17 Kuhmo KL78 on tomarow cant wait there 29.1" as well
02-04-2015 03:43 AM
SuperTom yes 29.1" diameter is the same as my setup so potential for rubbing. But your lifted and probably have spacers so you could try the 245 width tire

Tyler-98-W68 235/70/19 doesn't exist as a size. I have the tires mounted on the wheels now, just not put on to my compass yet. I will probably do that tomorrow or the day after.

I was also thinking 235/55/19 as its only 29.1" in diameter, which is the same size as the 235/65/17 I used to run, I've run a pile of different wheel sizes on my compass.

215/65/17 Stock
235/65/17
245/65/17
225/55/18
225/60/18
225/45/19
and finally 245/55/19

The 245/55/19 are just a wee bit bigger than the 245/65/17 I have now so it's going to be the absolute biggest size you will be able to run on these vehicle.

225/45/19 does work if you lower your compass.....



On a non lifted patriot

Here is a picture of them with the 225/45/19 tires on, wayyy too small for my lifted compass!

I know the small wheel big tire look is popular but I think that looks better on the patriots. Compass looks good with a bigger rim. Your setup should look great once you get those meatier tires put on.

Btorresc that looks good now your SUV, I also put 235/60 r18 with some rubbing on the front wheel to full lock. I worry a bit that this friction damage the tire or the structure of the truck and why I am considering putting slim spacers. I Put pictures soon

Hi just got my new wheels installed today even though I was going to try to hold out until winter was over. They are KMC heist 18 x 8 +35 offset, with Kuhmo road venture apt 235/60r18 tires. The tires are mainly highway tires(I drive 80 miles a day) but also have 5/10 off-road rating and are mud+snow rated so they should be good enough to hit some trails. Very very slight rub only at full lock, does not rub during normal driving sharp turns. I will not be adding spacers as I do not drive with the wheel fully locked one way or the other and the wheels seem to sit pretty flush with the fender, at least closer than stock. I think the wheels make it look a lot meaner and help get rid of that grocery getter look. Took quick snapshots can take better pictures tomorrow.
