Default Deals on WHEELS???

Anybody know of big chains with any 'smokin deal' sales on these wheels?



American Racing - Wheels


These "AR605 TORQ THRUST M" come in a 16 in, 35mm offset, and 57.1 hub! In other words, exactly what I'm looking for...

I always start with MR WHEEL DEAL.
Prices are good. Let's you know availabilty.
Then I look around for the best price.
I have bought a few sets of wheels from him over the years.

I like Tire Rack - they tell you how much the wheels weigh, but I can't find the weight on the linked site - I like the looks of the ones you picked, and agree on 16" size, they look awesome.

Question Re: Deals on WHEELS???

Getting closer to ordering some wheels...

some online fitment things say these ones do NOT fit, however:

Torq Thrust M 16x7 5x100 +35mm

Item Id: AR605M6780C

Size: 16x7
Bolt Pattern: 5x100
Offset: +35mm
Backspace: 6.0"
Hub Bore: 57.10mm


Shouldn't those fit a PT??? Or is the backspace wrong??

dont want to be like this? Wheel spacers

it's a RWD rim. the spokes are farther in because of it. the backspace is right, but the brake rotors are different. on most RWD cars the rotor hat is wider as it houses bearings, inner grease seal, it holds the studs, and must clear the spindle. on a FWD car the rotor just sits on the hub flange/studs.

if i wanted those rim's i'd buy them but i would be willing to grind the caliper a bit for clearance and possibly use thin wheel spacers if i absolutely had to. i'm pretty good with the grinder though so i'm pretty sure i wouldn't need spacers.

Unhappy Re: Deals on WHEELS???

...back to square one!

I don't want to mess around with grinders, jacking up the car, etc. Was hoping to just drive up to the tire shop with 4 big wheel boxes in the back, have them mount 4 nice new tires, balance, and drive away...

Where are the elusive "sixteen-inch-front-wheel-drive-classic-cragar-mags-that-perfectly-fit-the-PT-cruiser"??? A million and a half PTs out there, and no-body services that market segment??

hmmm - maybe this REV 100C-6705135 instead? (waiting for confirmation from their factory)

I have a feeling it would need hub-centric rings, which is not 100% ideal...
