Swapping OEM 17 " alloy for 16" steel wheels

I again guys.

As the subject title of my posting suggests I'm looking to swap out the 17" 5 spoke alloys on my Compass for a set of 16" steel wheels. I know the wheel bolt pattern already, but I was wondering if any of you could offer some tips and advice?

I swapped out the factory 18" Compass aluminum wheels for 16" Patriot Steels wheels. Are you looking for factory wheels or aftermarket?

Well I'd love a set of American Racing steel wheels in black. But I'd settle for a decent, relatively light set of black steel wheels. Perhaps with a set of Geolanders to match.
