    NEW 16" Chevy HHR Steel Wheels for our Jeep Renegade Trailhawk!

    Getting ready to install a Daystar lift on Renny, our 2015 Jeep Renegade Trailhawk and decided to pick up a set of new 16" wheels so that we could run bigger and more aggressive mud terrain tires. Being that the selection of aluminum wheels wasn't much to our liking and that we weren't 100% sure any ol' 16" one would work, we decided to go with steel wheels. And, while there were a few out there that could work for cheap, like a set of Dodge Dart wheels, we wanted something with a bit more style. After doing some research, we found that a set of Chevy HHR wheels came in a 16" diameter, a 6.5" width and with a 5x110 bolt pattern, 65.1 bore and a 42mm offset. This offset of course is just 1mm more than a stock wheel and so it should be fine. For those of you who are interested, here's where I got mine:

    those are gonna look sweet. So have you narrowed down the new mud terrain? Maybe a 32 x 16 mud grappler.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.
