Its a Traihawk. So, I would bet he means Red with Black stripe on hood. Probably black roof. Trailhawk interiors are also black with red accents.

Let me know how those tire look and fit. They should fit with no issues from the measurements I have taken.
I just may do the same.
I would like to find some different rims to put the tire on.
Guess it is going to take some time to figure out what rims will fit.
The rims on our Trailhawks look to be the same offset as the Renegade.
Local dealer thinks rims off Cherokee may fit as well.

Any reason why you changed the tires out so quickly? Why didn't you opt to run them down first before swapping them??

Definitely need some photos of the fitment as I remember there doesn't look to be a lot of room especially because of those wheel arches.

Does look to be enough room for a little bigger to me.
