I'm sure they'll look good, but I can't find any pics anywhere of PTs w/ the trim rings on the stock steelies. I just want to see how they look before I drop $45. Any help?

Save your $45. The reason you don't see pictures of baby moons and beauty rings on "stock" PT cruiser steel wheels is that they won't fit. There is nothing on the wheels for them to attach to. There were several companies that made "custom" steel wheels that fit the PT Cruiser. I'm not positive who is still making them since the demand has dropped off.

My ride has baby moons and beauty rings. The wheels, baby moon caps and beauty rings are made for front wheel drive cars by Wheel Vintiques.

Here's a closeup of a rear wheel. The wheels were powder coated and the double pinstripe was added by the painter who did my flames and pinstriping.

I understand that Wheel Vintiques no longer makes this exact wheel or baby moons. This combination has been replaced by a different design.
