Halo Rings

I would like to paint my stock headlights satin black and install lumen or any other brand Halo rings but I'm not sure what size will fit the stock lights I was hoping someone has done it on a cobalt before and could help guide me with what I need to do it thank you

Where exactly do you want to put the halo rings? I've never seen them on a stock headlight, only retrofits and you will likely have to do your own measurements

I'm trying to imagine this and all I can come up with is that it's gonna look like crap. You're better off doing a retrofit with projectors and installing halo rings either inside the shrouds or outside the shrouds, depending what shrouds you go with.

If you are going to tear them apart to paint anyways you can do a basic retrofit for quite cheap

All you need is a set of mini h1s projectors and a h1 hid kit. You can pick up a set of projectors for cheap in the closeout section at the retrofit source and order a hid kit from ddm tuning and spend about $100 total

It would also make things alot easier if you pick up the relay harness from the retrofit source as well, and that only costs about 30 bucks or so
