215 / 65 / 16 should be closer to original tire height and provided you don't have brake / caliper clearance issues should be just fine.

As always with tire size changes, I would take it up witht he tire shop.

When you open the drivers door check the sticker on the edge / end of the door. It will give you the acceptable tire sizes.

Hi, I was wondering if 16" rims will fit on the Compass?

We've got a brand new set of snows, that when put against the OEM's are perfect... but we just need 16" rims...

Anyone know if the 16" rims will clear the brakes?

I went with 215/65R16 for my winter ride. This was the suggestion of the tire deallers, confirmed by my
jeep dealer. The ride is fine. :P
