After looking for tire alternatives for the stock Trailhawk size tire I came across the Jeep Patriot forum. It turns out they use the exact same same 215/65R17 Trailhawk size tire. They are discussing the well respected Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires and trying to get them to produce the 215/65R17 size.

After speaking with Doug A. from Cooper Tires Consumer Quality Systems, the "Products Team" is indeed aware of the marketing opportunity, as well as the present and future demand for the 215/65R17 size. Further, and although he was being careful, he told me that I would be happy to know that I may indeed have my wish this coming summer! This and other aspects of the conversation lead me to firmly believe that this size is definitely coming in 2015. Now on to the ATW!

I also emailed them and here is the response I received:
Tom, we do not currently have either size in the Discoverer A/T3 tire line. The 215/65R17 is available in the Weather-Master S/T2 tire line. There may be some future tire development in that size, but currently we do not have either tire size in the A/T3, Thanks, Les
So you can see the two responses are pointing to hope there will be an alternative to the Goodyear Wrangler SR-A®. This is very important as so far the promised Falken WildPeak A/T tire Jeep said they are working on has been a no show.

Please email and phone Cooper Consumer Relations and request they make the Cooper Discoverer AT3 tires in the 215/65R17 size. Explain to them the New Jeep Renegade Trailhawk along with the Jeep Patriot, will allow them to sell tens of thousand in the 215/65R17 size.

After seeing the Trailhawk in person yesterday and test driving it, I really like the stock Trailhawk rims. As the selection for aftermarket 16" rims in the Renegade 5x110mm bolt pattern is so limited I'm really hoping Cooper or Falken will come out with a decent 215/65R17 size tire alternative to the stock Goodyear SR-As.

Please email Cooper about their Discoverer A/T3, and Falken, about their Wildpeak A/T and ask them when / if they will have the 215/65R17 size available. Please post the responses you get back here.

The Cooper contact information is listed above, for Falken:

Greetings, my first post here. Outstanding to see a Renegade Forum!


I posted the JeepPatriot.com thread above requesting Cooper offer the Discoverer A/T3 in 215/65R17. I am thrilled to learn that the Renegade Trailhawk will be utilizing that size too! I will be telephoning Cooper Tire again with that info today.


Cooper Tire would be foolish to miss out on the opportunity to be the exclusive Goodyear SR-A 215/65R17 alternative for potentially every Jeep Patriot and Compass Latitude and Limited made since 2007 and now the Renegade, which look like it is going to be all the rage.


Folks, please do contact Cooper with your requests:

This is the message I sent via their websites:


I wanted you to know that the new Jeep Renegade Trailhawk utilizes the 215/65R17 tire size. If ever a Jeep begged for a real AT tire, the Cooper Discoverer A/T3, it is this vehicle! The Renegade is going to sell like mad. In addition, every Jeep Patriot and Jeep Compass (Latitude and Limited both) made since 2007 features the OEM tire size 215/65R17. Cooper should not miss this opportunity to be the exclusive OEM size alternative to the Goodyear SR-A 215/65R17 for the Jeep Renegade, Patriot, and Compass, as I believe your company would sell tens of thousands of the Discoverer A/T3 in this size. Further, Jeep is planning a replacement vehicle for the Patriot and Compass in upcoming years and I am almost certain that the vehicle will utilize the same OEM size tire, 215/65R17.

I just received a response from Cooper Tire's Director of Product Management, Americas:

Thank you for the note. We appreciate your request and insights for a Discoverer AT3 in a 215/65R17.

We have added this to our review process that takes place in May. It is a very viable consideration. We will consider in both the Discoverer AT3 and the Discoverer ATW.

We like the idea !

GREAT JOB O'DubhGhaill, Thank you, good to see their feedback.
Thanks CalTom. I really believe that they are going to introduce manufacture of the A/T3 in this size! I am stoked! I will bring my 17" alloys out of storage and my wife's and my Patriot will be able to run arguably the best AT tire available!

If they introduce manufacture of the ATW in 215/70R16, I will mount the ATW on my OEM 16" Jeep steelies and run them in the winter.



I hope folks continue to lobby Cooper about this, as I truly believe they are listening!
