To save some money, you have to stick with the factory 16 inch size, then you won't have to buy new tires. If money isn't your concern, most people looking for new wheels go to a Plus 1 or Plus 2. That's 1 or 2 inches larger than what came with the car but it means buying new, bigger tires.

For some of the best deals, try looking at the "For Sale" adds on different PT forums or go to eBay. There's some upgraded 17 inch wheels and tires on eBay right now for $650 plus shipping. Here's a link:

eBay Motors: 17" wheels Nexen tires Fiero, Neon, PT Cruiser, Sunfire (item 120167755976 end time Oct-08-07 07:20:20 PDT)

Personally I would like to upgrade from my 16" aluminum wheels to some of the 2006+ GT wheels. They seem to be hard to find though,at least up here in the north.

A couple good sites for new wheels...

TireRack
DiscountTireDirect
WheelMax

There are plenty of other sites as well, but these are the ones I normally check. Hope these help out!
