Default Steel Wheels

Does anyone know if you can run 16" Chrysler steel wheels on a 2003 GT cruiser ?[:I] I have 17" wheels on the car right know, but I know that there maybe an issue with the clearance of the front brake caliper. TIA

You are correct. The 16" wheels won't fit a GT because of the bigger brakes needed to compensate for the extra speed of a GT. I don't know of anyone who is making 17" steel wheels.

You can use 16" steel wheels or even 15" but you have to add spacers behind the wheels (over the wheel studs) to make up the wider offset required by the GT calipers (front wheels only). I run 4 snow tires on OEM steel wheels in the winter with no problems on my GT. You can buy spacers at PepBoys or similar, or stack a couple of half inch steel washers on the studs to make up the width. Don't forget to get the correct tire size if you want your odometer to read true. The size for 15" is 195/65.
