Ok,
So, I've researched and read the tire/rim thread. But I still have a couple quick questions.

I'm looking at keeping the OEM tires and just changing out the steelies. I've found a few sets of 16" rims on eBay that I like that supposedly fit and are reasonable, but here's my question(s):

Will our lug bolts work ok with most offroad rims? And if so, any issues with re-using the TPMS sensors? And do you see any issues with any of the rims I've noted below?

Also, which do you think will look best on my Commando Renny?

Thanks in advance for any help or insight!

My renny:


And the rims I'm currently eyeing on the bay:

I ended up going with the 17" Vision Cross rims from Discount Tire Direct. (5x110/17x7.5)

Got all 4 with the "installation kit" containing the necessary wheel studs and center rings for $441 shipped.

I'm going to be putting them on either a 215/60r17 or a 225/60r17. Haven't quite decided which route to go just yet. I would LOVE to hear opinions on this. There's a 2.32% variance on the 225's vs the stock 16", whereas the 215's are only .57% variance. Not sure if either is enough to make a difference on the speedometer or the mpg front or not. If anyone has any info, PLEASE let me know.




Here's a (very) crude mockup of what they'll look like once installed. (They kind of remind me of the 75th anniversary rims)



And here are the stock 16" steelies

OD,

The "mockup" looks like that will go together nicely. Nice choice.
Thanks! I think so too. They should be here either Thursday or Friday. Think I'm going with a 215/60R17 tire to be closest to stock diameter. Don't wanna have to mess with taking the Renny in to service to get the speedo recalibrated.

As far as we know they cant currently correct your speedometer for the Renegades. Even going with a larger diameter tire, most people are only reporting a 1-2mph difference at highway speeds, so not a noticeable difference.


Not sure about how much it would affect your odometer though.

Hmm. Weird. One of the service advisors at the C/D/J/R/F dealership I work at said they can go in and input the tire size. But he could have just been guessing, as the Renny is still pretty new and they probably haven't done many/any speedo adjustments.

That being said, there has to be some way to ultimately adjust, as the Renny comes with 16s, 17s and 18s, knowwatimean??

I ended up just going with the 215/60/17. It's about as close to OEM as you can get and shouldn't have much effect on the speedo/odo. The tires are already here, I have to wait until Wednesday for the rims. I despise waiting. :D
