Call me lucky but I have had 100% success in purchasing aftermarket PT parts via the internet TIL I purchased from the above company. This company practices false advertising, unsafe and dangerous recommendations and the worst customer support after the sale I have ever dealt with. I spent much $$$$ for a set of wheels and tires that do not fit my PT without modifications. Trust me....this is one aftermarket dealer you do not want to do business with.

Sorry to hear it. Tires and brakes are 2 things I never look for bargains in.

I understand Don....actually I was not bargin hunting....I probably spend more for the package via the internet then I would have if the wheels had been available locally....
Basically they offered some wheels for the PT that I couldn't get here and now I know why they don't fit the PT without modifications.... grrrrrrrr

Hopefully wheel spacers will resolve the issues. They're on the way from another company. Wheels are hitting the brake calipers. SuperBuyTires suggested grinding down the calipers....
