You buy the rims, or that's how you bought it? They're nice...

Looks nice. Good example of this. The original wheels seem to get away. The original center caps are hard to find. Got a set right here. Chased the guy here, joined to get the caps before someone got them. Been here ever since.

Those are the wheels that came with the car and I like them too.

Lots of those wheels and many early PT chrome aluminum wheels have porosity problems which cause tire deflation so the owners discard them and buy good wheels in the aftermarket. My sons GT has a minor porosity problem but not enough to make him change them. He's very good about maintenance.

They are American Racer brand. Are these subject to the porosity problem?

Corrosion caused the leaks. The chrome blisters at the tire bead on the inside.

Ah, it all comes back to me. I do recall this very problem with the wheels on our first PT Cruiser. It was a 2001 and I think we ended up replacing 3 of its wheels.

yep! Painted ones dont do this. Must have been an issues in the chrome process. Something over time reacted with the alloy.
