Diablo,

Great information, thanks Smile I meant to put 45, the 35 was a mistype. However, I am still unclear as to which wheel spacers would just simply fix the problem for non-SRT drivers to fit SRT-4 wheels with the OEM 205-50-17 size tire to avoid rubbing the spring perch? The reason why I ask is that I have an opportunity to get a set of SRT-4 wheels that are already wrapped in almost brand new 205-50-17's - I don't want to have to purchase all new tires at $300+ just because on a regular stock SXT suspension, I will rub the perch. I also just ordered brand new rear struts due to a shot driver-rear strut so no, spending unnecessary money just for the SRT struts is out of the question lol

5mm spacers, and you might not even need them in the rear. Ran those perfectly on my first Neon, 205-50s and all.

Hmm ok 9.291% I'll take it in to get re-calibrated when I get my new rims. Also for some reason (Maybe temp change in upstate ny) my wheels no longer rub spring perch. Still put 5mm spacer in after I realized it fixed itself and now I'm good. So I'm running Stock SXT struts, srt4 springs, 17x7.5 offset 40mm rims with 205-50-17 wheels. No rubbing.

Question Should you use longer wheel studs when you have 5mm spacers ?

5mm is all the wide we need with a stock SXT suspension to run OEM 17x6 +45mm SRT wheels w/ 205-50s? Wow that's only a 5th of an inch wide...and that clears the spring perch completely, huh? I'm not opposed to spacers as I always liked the more aggressive look of lining wheels up with the fenders.

Did you happen to use longer studs & lugs, as our stock studs aren't very long to begin with...?

Nope, didnt need longer studs, 5mm is the most you can do though. My lugs fit right on, got a little more than half inch of thread in them

Recommended is 6-8 complete full turns of a lug nut. Were you able to accomplish this using 5mm spacers w/ stock studs?

I know this is a stupid question, but where can you buy longer studs for Neons?

I can't find them at Jeg's.

Test fit the wheel to be sure it clears the disc brakes ... I put 14" aftermarket (aluminum) wheels on my 2005 Neon SXT with no problems.

Do you have SRT-4 Struts on your non-SRT-4 and want to know what tire will fit?

Look at the SRT chart. Any tire a SRT can fit you can fit. The SRT and non SRT share the same suspension design aside from the spring perches being higher on the SRT strut resulting in a shorter coil spring.


yes, says it in the first post.

The tires on my 15" neon right now is 185/60/15r. Im thinking about getting bigger tires, can someone help me decide what the max I can go with? I don't want to deal with adjustment where the speedo might be off. Slightly bigger would be also fine because im from NE and winter has lots of pothole around here when they plow the snow.

Someone I believe was running 205/55/15s. I wanna say it was OB, but I know that's pretty damn close to stock diameter.

Discount Tire and similar sites give you other tire size options that retain the stock diameter, FYI.

well I don't see this combination asked yet. 05 srt 4 with 03-05 neon struts and the rims are silverstones which I believe are 16x6? I would like to know if I can run a 225 wide tire. im planning on running a 50 sidewall. I believe it should fit but my biggest question is how much rub can I expect
