Default Which PT Cruisers came equipped with the 11" diameter rear rotors?

I just measured the rear rotors on my 2004 5-speed PT GT and measured them 10.5" (just rounding #'s here I know they're actually larger like 10.62). Which PT Cruisers came equipped with the 11" rear rotor size? The only thing I could see was that the H/O versions came with them but I was under the impression all manual PT GT's were H/O? If anyone has some clarification on this subject it would be most welcome as my searches haven't turned up much useful information.

H.O. only means it is a GT auto or 5 sp. No HO in 03 because the turbo lite had not been released. All GTs should have the same one.

See that's what I thought... I guess I'm confused why they would have two different rear rotor sizes for the PT GT's. They list both 10.62 and 11.02, I think those are the sizes anyways. I just found it strange that the rotor sizes would be different for the same model of car.

Maybe a year thing.

Looks like you were right about the year thing. From what I could find the PT GT's had 10.62" rear rotors up until 2005 and then from 2006 on they came with 11.02" rear rotors.

I'd like to see that reference.

Everything I can find shows a 270 mm (10.62 inch) disc for the rear of the turbo PT from 2004 thru 2009. There is a change in the OEM rear rotor in 2006 when disc thickness was reduced from 12 to 9 mm. But it appears the aftermarket versions can be interchangeable depending on the design.

Well it's not so much a reference as a speculation on what parts sites sold what size rotors for different years. I'm probably wrong, if anyone who owns a 2006+ GT could chime in on rotor size that'd be awesome. I just wanted to know so that I ordered the right size rotors for my car.

I think the difference is between whether it is a GT or a turbo lite with 4 wheel disc. Again speculation here though.

Like Handy, I have never seen a listing for an 11" rear rotor. The fronts are a different story, but no 11" rear rotors.

A light with disk would have the same as a n/a. As the front are just n/a calipers.
