    So, i don't need to lift it ? If i refer to this chart under, i have to use spacer.
    I'm from Canada, and i drive often on Highway and then on dirt and rocky road with some holes. I'd like to keep it factory as much as possible for now, but i know that the stock tires will not be enough on my road to the Chalet

    How much do you air down?

    I am going to.purchase Cooper Discoverer STT Pros 225/75/16 for my TH. I am wondering how much you air down when you are offroading?

    Depends on the trail. For the most part, you can get by with pretty much street pressure but if needed, going down to about 15 will give you a bit more traction.

Fortunately for us, Daystar has embraced the Renegade as a real Jeep just like we have and they've started to develop some well needed products for it including a great 1.5" spacer lift. With this lift, you can effectively run a tire that is about 2" taller than what comes from the factory on a Sport, Latitude or Limited and about a 1" taller or so on a factory Trailhawk. For our purposes, we were able to go from a 215/65R17 Goodyear Wrangler SR-A to a 225/75R16 Cooper Discoverer STT Pro mud terrain tire (with the help of new 16" Chevy HHR Wheels and 1.25" wheel spacers) with just a touch of rubbing of the fender liner at a 3/4 turn of the steering wheel. Anyway, here are some first pics of what our Jeep Renegade Trailhawk now looks like, I hope you enjoy

    First off, this is a shot of what our Renegade looked like right after we brought it home.


    And, this is what it looks like now.


    Here are more pics to get you a better idea of just how much nicer a Jeep Renegade can look with just a little bit of help.






















    Here are a few shots that will help you to see just how much nicer a Jeep Renegade can look with an aggressive set of tires and a wider stance (thanks to the help of 1.25" wheel spacers). First, here's a before shot.


    And now, here's what our Renegade looks like now.




    A couple of shots from the back. First, what it used to look like.


    What it looks like now.




    Here's a shot that will help to show just how much more ground clearance an additional 2" of lift (1.5" lift + 0.5" of extra tire lift) will give you.


    A few more low shots so that you can get a better look at the stance and our new Cooper Discoverer STT Pro tires mounted on 16" Chevy HHR steel wheels.










    Close up shot of the 16" Chevy HHR Wheel with a 1.25" wheel spacer to help clear the brake caliper and give a nice stance.


    Here's a before shot of what the factory wheels looked like under the front fender of the Renegade Trailhawk.


    And here's what it looks like now.


    Again, this is what the rear looked like from the factory.


    And this is what our Renegade Trailhawk looks like now.


    And finally, here are some snow play shots that we took out on our maiden voyage with the new lift and tires installed.










    We got our Cooper STT Pros from Discount Tire

    what did you end up using for a center cap on the wheel hub?

    How much clearance is there between the front tire and its strut perch? is there a pic by any chance? I understand your running a 1.25" spacer and a HHR rim with +42mm offset. I'm buying a 17x8 rim and I'm trying to see what is the minimum size spacer and/or rim offset I need to minimize tire rub. Thanks!!!

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
