Default Will Toyota Avensis Wheels fit my Cruiser?

Does anyone know if a set of wheels from a Toyota Avensis (2005) will fit my 2001/02 Pt Cruiser Classic? Dimensions are 205/55-16, ET 45, 5x100.

Welcome to the Forums.
Very unlikely.
I saw a list of compatible wheels - there were some VW, a couple from GM, but no Toyotas.

Ok, what is the crucial point here then? The Cruiser also has 5x100 bolt pattern (I think?) and the wheel dimensions 205/55-16 are the same. So then I guess it must be the "ET 45" thing that spoils it? (don't actually know what this means..)

The big center hole has to be right - the PT has "hub centric" wheels - meaning the center of the wheel rests on the hub - it isn't just the wheel lugs that position the tire. There is also offset - whether the back of the wheel clears the brake calipers.

As long as the hub size is the same or larger, they will probably fit. That said, you may have to add hubcentric rings to keep them from vibrating, if they are different...

Ok, thanks for the replies guys, but I don't quite get it yet.. What is the hub size and how do I find it? And what does "ET 45" in the Toyota wheel description mean? (btw; english is not my native language either..)

You were right, they didn't fit.. I took a chance and bought the complete set of wheels with tires, and tried to install one of them on my PT, but the hub centre was too narrow.. But I guess I can use the tires anyway.
