Default ground wires

when replacing my brakes on my 06 cruiser . I noticed a green wire that was grounded to the wheel post..Does anyone know what they go to because both were cut in half?

It's part of the grounding system for the PT. Without those wires, static electricity builds up and goes to the wheel bearings and can cause pre-mature failure of the bearings. Replace or repair both of those ground straps/wires.

It's also tied to the ground loop for the ABS system. Really should be connected.
