    Now that you have been running your 1 1/4" spacers for a while now, have you had any issues with them?

    Has anybody has any luck finding other 16" wheels that fit over the TH massive brake calipers?

    No. The only way I could find to clear them was to run 1.25" wheel spacers and that was with a thinner steel wheel. Aluminum wheels are going to be a lot harder to make work.

    Have you had any issues with the thinner HHR wheel? I imagine not much of an issue with the taller side walls, but just don't want to go bending a rim. Is air down an issue?

    Sorry, another question. Would it be possible to get a new 16" wheel with an offset of say zero? This would push the wheel out the 41mm from the stock TH wheel. This would be about 3/8" further out than the 1.25" spacers. Would back spacing then be a problem?

    renegade lift

    i just bought a 2016 renegade trailhawk. its good to know about the fitment issues, with 16 in wheels. the parts guy at the local jeep dealer in Tucson said the calipers and rotors where the same on all renegade 4x4s.
    makes me wonder if its worth lifting it or not. im not a big fan of spacers.

    I'm basically intending on doing rocker panel protection before I do anything else that requires serious work. I used to take my folks '99 Tracker out and the only thing I ever did to it was to come down on a rock and put a crease on a rocker. Fortunately not too severely, but enough that if you know where to look you can see it.

    Kicking the wheels out a bit also appeals and is very easy compared to so many other things, but I'd rather find wheels manufactured with the right offset if possible. This is the first 4x4 with this bolt pattern so I'm not exactly surprised that we haven't seen aftermarket wheels like this yet.

    Yes that's exactly what in finding out. I'm thinking of some steel wheels till the choice improves

    That's what im hearing .. but local jeep dealer told the calipers are the same on all renegades. Yet the renegade sport comes with 16in wheels. So its like WTF, or is it the rotars the are bigger.

This was supposed to change in 2016 and ALL Renegades are to come with the same brakes.

    That being said, are you running 16" wheels now? If so, I would think you'd be fine. If not, measure your front rotors and if they're 11" in diameter, you will be fine. If they measure 12", you will have the same brakes that we have on our Trailhawk and you will need to run spacers to make the HHR wheels work.
    Good to know .ive got a 2016. I'll be lifting in the next couple of months..love the look of the cooper stt pro
