I have been seaching the interweb for the best size but figured I would ask y'all to.

I have a 2016 Jeep Patriot Sport FWD.

No lift currently. I am looking for little to no run or modifications for this set. But want something more aggressive.

I am looking at a few brands and sizes.

General Grabber AT2
Falkin WildPeak AT3
Cooper Discoverer AT3

235/70/R16
225/70/R16

Current size is 205/60/R16 I believe. I will double check that.

Of those options what do y'all feel would work best? We hit the trails regularly and travel through gravel paths, mud, open fields, and shallow streams with no issues as of yet. But don't plan on going much deeper then that with this rig.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!image1.JPG

For size, I would recommend the 235/70/16. It will give you 1/2" more sidewall and a slightly (1/4") higher stance than the 225/70/16. As for brand, all three are great. That being said, the General Grabber AT2 tends to be a more aggressive tread for the mud than either the Falkin or Cooper.

What Iv found is that the generals are a little on the cheaper side. Iv heard great things about the Falkin tires
