    Thanks for the info, the anvil trim will be a nice touch.

    I got the painting done on the wheels, now trying to decide if I do the stars in the middle or not.

    In person the paint matches, every pic I took the body and wheels look a different shade. IMG_20170803_165147949.jpg

    Thanks for sharing the information and all of the photos. I think I will be buying the tires for my Desert Hawk.

    From another thread, I flipped over my spare tire as suggested and was able to put my tow chain and strap etc... in the extra space created. I think if you have enough weight on it, the tire doesn't move around. It appears you could use the extra space and find the information helpful.

    I gotta admit...I saw those wheels at a shop and wasn't impressed, but they look really good painted up on your Renegade. Nice job!

    I decided to do the stars Anvil too, I think they look more finished this way

    I think they do too. Now that's just wheels and tires, right? No lift. No spacers. No rub.

    Yep all wheel no lift or spacers, 17x8 Rockstars +20 instead of +40ish stock with 225/65/17 BFG KO2 tires.

    Here is how they line up from stock to what I have now.

    After going back and forth on wheels since May, I've finally decided on these... xd-series-xd827-rockstar-3-split-spoke-red-inserts-promo_1080p_t.jpg
    No spacers to deal with and I can keep my tires until they wear out and then I can get some 235/60r17
