Default Will It Fit

I have a 2003 pt cruiser gt. I had to get rid of my 17 inch chrome rims because of constant air leaks. I have been offered a set of 2000-2002 16 inch chrome stock rims (2160) for a fair price.

1. Do these rims have the same problem as the 2003 17 inch with respect to pitting and air leak problems.

2. Will they clear the brake caliper and fit properly?

Thanks for your assistance.

Yes,lot's of people have had problems with the stock 16" chrome rims leaking due to peeling/pitting chrome.

Stock 16" rims have had the same leaking problems only more so than the 17" rims. Just buy aftermarket 17" rims so you can use the same tires you had before. Stay away from any stock 16" rims.
