Lookin good!

I always did think the original GT rims were a nice look and fit on the cruiser and that's why when I upgraded to 17's I choose those rims. Easy to keep clean and shiny also. I was lucky and didn't get a set where the chrome chipped and flaked. They came off an 05 Vert.

I really want those wheels on my PT! Unfortunately in the UK they are very difficult if not impossible to come across, I'm still holding out though!

Your pt is looking much better now.
