March 31, 2007Hey Brian,
Welcome to the PTCW!
If you just put the regular Slammers from Goldline, 20's might fit, but it will be tight. I've got the Goldline Super Slammers, and I had some custom addapters made to drop the rear an additional 2", bringing my ride to a 3/4 drop. My body is now sitting 4" off the ground on all four corners, and 3 1/2" under the front, and rear bumpers. At that height, my 17"s have a 1/2" gap from the tire to wheel well all the way around. The rear still has about 1 1/2" of travel left, but even though we shaved half the stock bump stops in the front, it is still sitting solid with no travel.
So mild Slammers...20"s..Maybe, but tight. Super Slammers,... 17"s Max without modification!
March 31, 2007i got a screamin deal on a set so i think im gonna try and put them on with the regular gold lines, then if that doesnt work i will put the stock springs back in cause i want to roll some dubs lol
April 1, 2007Brian, sounds awesome man. Be sure to post some pics in the galleries if you can. I'd really like to see what ya' picked!!!!
April 1, 2007i will do that, im going to pick them up on friday and then im headed to montana so i will get some picks when i get a chance
April 1, 2007You're going to be riding on rubber bands. One pot hole and.........
30's and lowered. You're going to feel everything from the road. I hope you enjoy the ride.
April 2, 2007It will definately look sweet!!!But the ride will be a bit harsh..hey, it's all what you are willing to put up with and can afford...I am running 17's with the mild drop 1.5/2.0 Goldlines...The springs ride great. When I cruise with the stock 15's you can hardly notice the ride is differnet, as far as the lowering goes...one I put the 225/45/17 & 245/40/17 on...well the ride is still good just noticably harsh compared to stock. If I have my way I will get some solid black 16's and call it a day. I love the look of the 17's (and really wanted 18's) but it is not any fun when I put the family in the car when everyone is getting jarred around.....the thing I LOVE about the 17's....corners like a little sports car...(the strut tower bar is a MUST!) I know PT's are not sports cars, but I have surprised more than a few following me around corners...
So, that is why I am considering 16". It would be a comprise to maintain some handling and have a decent ride at the same time...IMHO
April 2, 200720's will fit the rear. They won't fit the front without an adapter for the struts. You need to worry about the width of the rim. 20x7.5 is ideal. 20x8 is cutting it close. 20x8.5 and you will be rubbing. make sure your offset for the front is for fwd. I'm having a hard time finding 19's to 20's with a 7.5 or 8 and I have an airbag system.
April 2, 2007the wheels im getting are a 7.5in wide wheel, with a 225-30-20 series tire so im still wondering if they will fit without an adapter. from what me and the tire guy saw it looked like it would be close but should clear it. but i guess there is only one to find out and i guess i will see on friday if they will work or not.
April 5, 2007Brian, before you get your 20's, take a look at this......
Hope the link works.
April 5, 2007Some people!!! lol
