They had an instant $100 off and I used the carcareone card so I will get $80 back in rebates.

So after the instant rebate and the card rebate it was just a little over $600 for the tires and wheels mounted and balanced.
Still alot of money but better than what it could have been.
Now I can feel safe with my kids and wife riding with me in my pt and an added bonus...these will make my cruiser look alot better than the 195-50 tires on the stock 15" rims


*** Good call..... safety first ... I keep a close eye on my tires every day .. and dry rot is bad news.. especially if you're on the interstate at high rates of speed.

The Turbo is strong, fast and reliable.. People that don't understand the love of a PT, probably don't deserve to.

If that's the worst, I keep saying they are okay. It's not the rubber holding the tire togheter, it are the treads inside.

I'm glad you replaced those tires. I'd hate to see someone get hurt or worse because of them.

As for your new wheels, please post a picture when you get them on the car. They look nice on the Discount Tire Direct site, so I'd love to see what they look like on your car.

I will post some pics when I get them on the pt. I searched and searched for pics of these wheels on a pt and couldn't find anything....I think they will look good though

There's a tool on the site to virtually fit them:
