Just picked up a set of 19"x7.5" Caliber SRT4 rims. These need some TLC but i plan to paint them anyways. Gonna order some Hankook evo v12 tires, spacers, and new lugs. and have it ready for once the snow is gone. In the first pic they look really big sitting in front of my stock wheel but its an illusion. Stock overall diameter is 27.15", and these are 26.97". Also im not gonna use the Ram head center cap im gonna use the jeep center cap and make it look legit.

thx im gonna finish repairing them tomorrow night then paint them some time after christmas. 1 rim had a 7" section of curb damage


2 had minor curb damage, and 1 was fine. I found this great guide on a ford focus forum.

Useing JB Weld to rebuild the damaged section then taking it down with a metal file and sand paper. the end result turns out great ill post pics once the repair is complete

Looking forward to it, especially the other Jeep related projects, always cool to see what you're going to do next. You should do a teaser thread where you post a pic of what part of the Compass you're working on, see how many people can guess what you're doing. :)

if u havnt welded the wheels yet u could also us a all metal putty... that what we would do in my shop.. i work autobody..... but might be hard to find unless u went to a autobody shop and asked but welding may be easier if u have access to it

Test fitting the 19's, i will need about a 1 inch spacer to keep a good space between the tire and strut once the 245's are mounted on the rims.



picked up all my paint and materials, got the tires dismounted, and started painting the rims earlier today. Pictures will follow upon completion
