Is there a 15 inch wheel that will go on the SRT-4 and clear the break caliper without the need for spacers. Please post if you have a set up like this and where I can get them.

Don't know about the two you're looking at. I have 15x7 Kosei K1 racing wheels. They fit perfectly, no spacers. I'm running 225/50/15 DRs, but slicks should work on them fine, also. Actually a little safer than the PT steelies, which are 6.5" wide instead of 7".

Can you tell me what the exact offset is on the wheel & where to buy them?

LucyBop and SRT4real - The correct offset and place to buy would be nice to know. I figure tire rack, but I would need to know what offset to order. Thanks a lot!

Oops! Didn't notice the follow up questions...

I'm not sure of the offset. Go to tirerack.com and pick out the Kosei K1's that fit the PT Cruiser. They are a perfect fit. (Won't show them on the SRT-4 because the software assumes you'll want 17 inch rims or bigger).

Can you use 4 of them them for daily driving? I would think so. I've driven with them on the front for days at a time (when I was too lazy to swap back) and they work fine. Of course, that tends to wear out DRs in a hurry. Running 4 of them with street tires would give you less handling than stock.

A 38mm offset is what you want with the Kosei K-1. No spacer needed and no rubbbing with the 24.5/8/15 MT's. Now if you want to use 26" slicks, you'll need a spacer for the slick to clear the strut perch when it expands. If you have coilovers, no worrys.

Have fun :eveilgrin
