Default How Can You Fit 20in Rims on the front of the PT?

Yea i was just wondering is there anyway to get 20 inch rims on the front of the Cruiser? Cause I have 18's right now and it looks good but theres too much wheel clearance!! and it makes the rims look small! And I've seen people that out 18's on the front and 20's in the back but that cost way to much to do! I want 20's all the way around!! I know you put an Air Bag system on it and fit 20's but is air bagging the only way!? Please someone help me out on this cause I have a friend who has some 20's for sale and they fit cause i put them on the back. And if theres a way I'm going to buy them! Thanks every bit of info is helpful!

Naw no one has gotten back to me on the DUB situation! I really need to know. Cause a friend of mine is about to sell them 20 inch KMC Units that fit my cruiser. He's got them for a cheap price. Right now I got 18 inch Lexani Iris. The 18inch in the front and the 20 inches in the back look pretty good but not as good as DUBS all the way around!I'll try to put up a pic so that u can get a look at the 18 in the front and 20's in the back.

If its a "friend" that is selling them, then tell him to let you try them on. You do that when you buy new treads for your feet.<img src=icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

Why in the world would you want to put a 20" wheel on the front? Wheel well gap too big you say? Jeez..did you lower it first? A 20" is gonna look waaayyy too big. I also wouldn't be surprised if it's just not possible without rubbing on something. An 18-20 combo and lowered 2-3 inches is the way to go for large diameter wheels on a PT. Those will fill up the wheel well gap perfectly. Keep in mind, these are small cars..put huge wheels on them and they look even smaller. I see SUV's with 20 inchers on them (unlowered) and they look terrible. To have large diameter wheels, you have to be able to drop the body down around them to look right.

California Cruisers has done it to several of their PTs. You could ask them how they did it ...
