4 Renegade 1 CJ-35 Kelsey Hayes Rims on eBay

• CATEGORIES: Tires and Rims

If the seller is correct, these are pretty rare rims.

“This is a genuine set of the rare Renegade 1 Kelsey Hayes Jeep wheels. They are the real deal “deep dish” 15×8 Renegade 1 wheel with all 4 KH tags still in tack with the correct part number KH-79005. These only came on 1970 CJ5s that were ordered with the Renegade 1 package. Production number of Renegade 1 wheels have been rumored at only 600 making these relatively rare wheels. You can google “kelsey hayes renegade 1 wheels” and there you’ll find the examples of these wheels with a little history. These wheels are in incredible original condition with no rust, the paint is in excellent condition as well. These have a 5 on 5 1/2 bolt pattern and will actually work on any Jeep CJ 1946-1986.”
