Need new 16" for my compass limited, recommendations?

Hi everybody. Today i got absolutely tired of the stock 18" rims and wheels because they are very very designed for the city and goes absolutely bad on the grass on weekends.

My compass is a euro model, so it came with continental contipremiumcontact 2.

My actual decision is to put some 16" alloy or steel wheels on my compass, but i found the 5 bolts pattern is rather different than other cars, its 5-114. So i went to tirerack, and they don't have the ORIGINAL jeep wheels for the patriot (the ones i want to put into my jeep)

Does anybody know where i can get them over the internet, or any specific model of 16" should i buy?? i am not intersetes in superb looking or something like that, just in the mean of possible original shape jeep wheels that can match my compass style.

thanks!

tirerack.com has a lot of alloy wheels with the correct bolt pattern. I think 5-114 is the metric equivalent of 5 - 4.5 inches. I bought plain jane steel wheels from a local shop. The 16" factory Jeep wheels are steel where the 17" wheels are extra cost and are alloy. I don't know what gets imported to Argentina.

I agree, the steel wheels are kind of ugly but would you believe that I was ready to buy some cheaper alloy wheels and the tire store manager suggested that they would not be rugged enough for my purpose for my winter tires. I figure if I get tired of the "macho" look of my black steel wheels I can get some plastic wheel covers that look like fancy alloy wheels.

Cragar Soft 8 16X8, 5" BS with 235/70-16 tires and a 2" RRO lift on a Patriot. You could also go 16X7 4" BS and smaller tires if you're not lifted.
