Hello Folks,

I am new to the forum and I have bought brand new Jeep compass Limited plus.
SInce it came stock with 19 inch rims, I am in situation where I am limited with the A/T tyre models.
I already ordered 17 inch wheels and 225/65/17 Yokohama Geolandar G015 A/T
I have done some measurements and as the result these tyres have to fit.
My stock 19's are 235/45/19 or 27.4 inches in diameter. The new set with 17 wheels and 225/65/17 are 28.5 inches in diameter, so the difference is 1.14 inches more compared to the stock size.
I have seen in this topic these tyres will fit witn no rubing.

What I am trying to figure out is whether A/T tyres diameter the same as let's say highway terrain tyres with the same size. I am considering the agresive footprint of the AT tyres which might put extra size above specified size by the vendor.

Does anyone have this set of rims and tyres fitted to 2nd generation compass ? Mine is MY 2020 european model.

Thank you.

How it looks with stock 19 inch rims and 235/45/19 tyres

The tires should fit fine. Lots of folks on here are running that size. One area of concern would be the offset of the rim. >45-ish and you may have issues clearing the brake caliper.
Check the tire manufacturer for the exact description of the tire size. Sometimes they vary a bit from the advertised 225/65. But not much.

Thank you for your reply.
In fact the stock rims offest is 40mm. I have ordered 17 inch rims with 33mm offset . I belive I will get some more clearance in betweeen the whells and the car's body from the inside.

Once I have the new rims and tires mounted, I will post the measurements and the photos.

Okay folks, I just got a new whells set and mounted them on the car.
The whells fited very well and no rubbing.
I tested in bumps and I have made a compression of the suspention to its limit.
There is about 20 mm space in the critical points in between front fender on the right whell and the same space in between the tire and the rear shock absorber.
Front wheels have more than enought space even at full turn.
See on the pictures.

Important notice here is that I mounted the tires on 7.5J rims with 33 offset. The original rims have 40 offset.
These 0.7 mm offest compensate the clearance in between the tire and right shock absorber. I assume with 40 offset rims and 225/65/17 tires they will rub in the rear shock absorber.

Suspention compresed to its maximum. The oposite whell losse the ground.

I have a 2019 Jeep Compass Trailhawk with stock 215/65r17 and want to increase the width ( I hate the skinny look) of the tire. The Jeep site says the stock 17" wheels are 6.5. What's the widest tire size I can safely run? I was thinking 225-235. Will that work?

Just some clarification here on offset vs backspacing:
the stock wheel is a 17x7 ET40, which gives a backspacing of 5.57".
Your wheel is a 17x7.5 ET33 which has a backspacing of 5.55".
So your wheel is technically .02" closer to the shock tower, or roughly 0.5mm. It's not enough to be worried about unless you're working with super tight clearances. There's plenty of people who run 225/65-17 on stock wheels with no issues
