Default PLEASE HELP ME!! I Love my PT Cruiser but having Troubles

Hi everyone, I am new on site but have visited a few times. Many helpful tips on here. Thought I would make an account to see if I can get some help with my PT Cruiser before letting go and buying a new car. I really do not want to say good bye.

First major problem I have been having is tire trouble. I am currently riding on 195/65R 15 and would like to put some size 17 inch tires on. Am wondering is this possible? And if so what are measurements I should look for to fit??

Also having major problem of everytime I hit about 60 clicks car starts like jerking back and fourth and feeling like it wants to just fall apart and die. I have been driving like this for about a couple months and really need to solve issue. Any idea what maybe causing this?

Tell us a little about you pt. Year mileage auto or 5 speed. Do you have any lights on the dash on? Is the motor surging or the wheels shaking? Anything been tried or diagnoses by anyone?

Jerking? Do you mean foreward/backwards, or side to side? Is it in the wheel?

If you were to up the wheel diameter you would likely need to re adjust and calibrate the spedometor because your spedometor was designed for 15 inch rims. Just an FYI ^-^
