You oughta check out Startechs rendition of the Compass. Can't remember right off hand if they put black rims on it or not, but, either way, pretty cool, dual exhaust, pretty macked out. They should still have the pictures of it on Autoblog.com, under Jeep. Worth a look.

yeah i saw the startechs compass, it is soo nice..those wheels on it look like the srt10 cherokee wheels...defintely will bring more stares to your car ..and on the factory body kit...it would look so classy on a steel blue compass...even though its a pretty steep price...we should ride out a little more time and hopefully by summer more bodykits would come out....

Not bad, for the "lipstick" Compass, huh? Nice rocker panels. Looks interesting, like the exhaust, but some of the panels are not what I would go for myself. I like the bumpers the way they are, but they at least make it look good, without being tacky and stupid looking. So far, that is the only one I have seen, but, as I have said elsewhere, it won't be long before someone else attempts it. What I REALLY wonder, is how long the Compass will actually be in production. After all, they have not even hit close to their mark, and the interest is not as good as they thought it would be coming out of that focus group, where they decided to build the Compass and Patriot. I guess only time will tell, but that might be a factor in the long term as far as what is actually put on the market as far as mods go for the Compass. Good luck.

well, i went to the autoshop and they quoted me for 240 for all four rims, + i have to take the rims off and the wheels, it would come around for like 300 :cry: way to expensive i thought...so i dont know maybe ill put the money for tinting the tail lights and putting some more audio into the car....

Sounds like a good bit of money. As for me, I want the luggage rack for the roof, and I will probably get the rally lights for the front, make it look more like the concept. It is kind of difficult to pimp zis auto!

i know it is!!! i was wondering if the stock srt 10 cherokee wheels fit on the compass, they are wider but i think it would look sick with the compass' wide fenders

Might be worth a try, but it's not like other Jeeps, where they have aftermarket fender flares or something like that, a molding you could attach to the fender to cover that. Even if they did, nothing would fit the body style of this car without, like you said, looking severely odd. It seems they deliberately built the Compass to where the tires completely fill the wheel wells, kind of giving it a squat appearance
