Plug and Play
Custom Tires, Custom Wheels, Tires and Wheels Packages, Parts and Accessories for your Car, Light Truck, and SUV from Performance Plus Tire

This is one of the few sites that allows you to picture the wheels on your car.
Also, if you've got a couple more pictures from different angles of your PT, postum up so we can recommend some wheels a little better.

Hey that's a pretty clean one! What my suggestion would be is chrome with a gloss black lip.

Platinum Gripp is pretty sick though the face is diamond cut and not chrome.

Hey sweetcalves024,

pretty cool looking PT ya got their, and an extra 10 bonus points for the tire dressing in my book as well.

18's ought to look pretty trick on your PT. I am maybe seeing some different ideas on your ride. I usually really like cars that are a bit different. Here is a Neon for example with SRT Wheels which he had the wheels powder coated black, and then had the lips done with a bright neon green. Sure its a more extreme look, but it definitely will turn some heads. If you did something like that in Electric Blue, that might really be a cool look. To me it almost gives an optical illusion of kinda floating i the air on a cushion of neon light under the right light conditions. I recon I kinda like it as its a bit outside the norm. Here are a couple of pic's.




Now, whatever wheels you may choose, have you given any thought to maybe lowering your ride a bit to close the wheel gap? For some reason, I am always a sucker for a dropped PT. Here is my baby rolling still on stock 17's, but with a slight altitude adjustment.



That is my take on it anyways.

Go easy, and best of luck on your choice of new wheels.

Candyman

Is that a altitude or a attitude adjustment....I'ld say your car has a great deal of attitude

thanks guys!

candyman- that neon does look pretty awesome, not sure about how it would look on the PT. Maybe if it was black. and yes i definitely want to get mine lowered. i wanted to lower the front some but then lower the rear to level it out. i love your ride!! i always wanted a burnt orange pt... but i love my electric blue

hello again!


So...im super new to the whole modification thing... so i am going to ask a question. (probably a stupid one)

Is it okay to lower the pt before i get rims? i mean does lowering it affect the size of the rim im able to get? i want to get 18's but wasnt sure if lowering before hand would screw up this plan. thank youuuu!
