2009 Jeep patriot sport/ tires

Looking for tires other than the only ones they recommend. Looking for a more aggressive tread. Found Coopers but have to go to 215 70 R 16 . But not listed for this jeep. As anyone else out there went with a bigger tire on this jeep .

You might go to tirerack.com and see what they recommend, lots of info there, along with tire tests and reviews. You could also post this on a Jeep forum. But don’t go bigger, this is not a powerful vehicle, bigger tires = slower acceleration.

215/70R16 is THE go-to common replacement for the rare 205/70R16 they come with.
Go for it.
We did one in this shop just yesterday.

Oh, only 10 mm different? That I wouldn’t worry about.
