Default American racing Wheels or Cragar Advice

I really want to put a set of American Racing Tork Thrusts on my 01 PT, but I'm a little confused...I know they make them for front wheel drives now...but could not find a seller locally.

I have standard size OEM tires now, but would like to put wider rubber (not whitewalls) in the back to get more of that classic Hot rod look, Just wondering how wide I can go within reason, and also some good places where I can get a set of wheels/tires configured online.

I really don't understand the whole sizing thing, can anyone school me on that?

I know this much:
235 - width of the tire across the tread in millimeters
40 - Aspect ratio of the sidewall compared to the width
R - Radial construction
15 - Diameter of the rim in inches


2001 Silver PT base stick-shift, beat to hell and proud!
