Jeep Patriot Bolt Pattern Guide

Short Answer

Unlike other Jeep vehicles, all Jeep Patriot vehicles have the same bolt pattern, regardless of their trim levels: 5×114.3 (or 5×4.5 in inches).

Jeep Patriot was a crossover SUV manufactured by Jeep from 2007 to 2017 and was known for its spacious interior and reliability.

While many people loved it due to its affordable starting point and fuel efficiency, Jeep discontinued the Patriot in 2017 – primarily due to an outdated design.

In fact, I’ve seen many of my friends compensate for this aging design with custom wheels.

So, if you own a Jeep Patriot and want to do the same, you first need to get the correct information about the bolt pattern.

This will ensure that you only pick the wheels that are compatible with your vehicle and will have no problem in fitting.

Jeep Patriot Bolt Pattern

If you’ve been following us lately, you’ll know we’ve recently published multiple blog posts regarding bolt patterns for different jeep vehicles, such as Grand Cherokee, Renegade, Compass, Wrangler, etc.

Keep up with the tradition; we have the Jeep Patriot bolt pattern this time.

The FCA has done an excellent job in keeping the same bolt pattern in all Patriot vehicles – unlike other Jeep series, where you get different patterns depending on the vehicle’s generation.

Still, many car owners get confused by the format of the pattern. That’s because, in some places, the bolt pattern is written in inches format; while mm format is used in others.

Therefore, I have listed the bolt patterns for all Jeep Patriot vehicles in both formats to avoid any mix-up.

How to Change Wheels on Jeep Patriot?

Once you’ve selected new wheels, it’s time to put them on your Jeep Patriot. Here’s what you need to do:

  • Park the vehicle on a flat, dry surface, away from the traffic.
  • Turn off the ignition and engage the parking brake.
  • Use a wrench to loosen the lug nuts of the wheel you want to replace, but don’t remove them, as it can make the vehicle unstable.
  • Place the jack under the right spot for lifting (check this info on the vehicle manual) and raise the wheel slightly above the ground by turning the jack screw to the right.
  • Remove the lug nuts and the wheel.
  • Align the new wheel with the wheel studs on the hub and push it onto the hub until it sits properly.
  • Put the lug nuts on by hand in a star pattern.
  • Lower the vehicle by turning the jack screen to the left.
  • Tighten the lug nuts with the wrench in a star pattern.
