Default Cragar S/S wheels

I am looking to put Cragar S/S wheels on my 2005 Convertible with 16 inch wheels. Anyone had any experience with this? I was told by a online dealer that they make 17 inch wheels that fit but not 16 inch. Only have 1200 miles on car. Really don't want to buy wheels and tires. Any help would be appreciated.

American Racing has a simular wheel that is made in 16". Here's a photo on a Cruiser;

Unless something has happened, Crager does not make an S/S wheel forthe PT Cruiser(FWD) FWD is not their bag. Sad, I too woulk like a set. Had em on my SS Camero in the 60's

Cragars will fit on the Cruiser with a little grinding on the brake calibur. I have seen several PT's with them on. I had looked into it at one time myself.

I have Cragar S/S wheels on my PT. I purchased them through a local wheel dealer in Tampa. They are 17x7 and I did have to grind very little on the calipers in the front. My Cragar S/S were installed in the fall of 2002 and I have had no problems with them.

I have the 15" American Racing Aero wheels. I love 'em. I shoulda purchased the chrome wheels, rather than polished - they're a pain in the neck to keep nice. I would recommend the 16" if you don't want to buy new tires and want a similar look. I purchased the 15's because I like the look and the tires cost less (yeah, I'm cheap).

Best wishes in your search.
