Default 20" RIM FIT CHECK

Wheels came in today. Almost brand new for a used set. Put the front wheel on to check the fit. No issues as far as I can tell.
Still needs to be clean up and balance.
MSR 087
20 X 7.5 40ET

Well at least you can change brakes without pulling the wheels.

Your new rims looks nice and huge. But I think Super finish black would complement better with your PT. I just saw one from 4wheelonline under MSR wheels category.

I guess you will be driving around the roads and highways, r-e-a-l s-l-o-w.
I can see a none static issue you will find very quickly. Good Luck don't wreck your beautiful PT for the sake of having that wheel tire combination.

I like your bling. Not a fan of the black hole look. Its like the minimalist look in black. Aside from the ride thing. I love the fact that something grabs your eye from the all black body.

Love the rims I've been thinking about finding some 20" rims for my cruiser.

Super Finish Black was my first choice. MSR discontinued the MSR 087.
I look for them for over a month no one had any in stock.
This set came up on EBay as a used set with crappy Sunny tires.
If you want see what they look like on a PT check out the car configurator on the MSR site.

I tried to google non static issue . Don't know what you mean?

I do have a concern about driving with this setup. That's why I ditch the Sunny tires and order a set of continental extreme contact dws.
I am hoping a all season tire vs a summer tire will give me more of a softer and safer ride.

Not a lot of choices for a PT. Did a lot of research for a 20" setup. No one could give me a guarantee that a 8 to 8 1/2 width wheel would work.
Main reason I went with the MSR 087.
Also like that they are a 5 X 100 specific with exposed lug nuts.

Actually it's a matter of taste.
I like the big black hole look.
I like chrome with black.
But, some of the big chrome wheels are just too much!
