Need to know mods plz.

On an N/A 2nd gen, 3.55 tranny I would say 20" tall slick, 22" tall max.

Depending on your mods, width would vary from 6-8"...

I ran the same slicks on 7 spoke wheels on my 1gn. Just had to use a small spacer.

You may have to space it out about 5mm, but they should fit without issue.

Speaking from experience, I'd stay away from a 20" tire with a 3.55.

In my stock SXT I pegged the limiter right at the traps. Shifting to 4th killed the times. If I were to try it again, I'd try 22s.

The 1st gen perches are slightly taller than non-SRT 2nd gen struts. Just throwing that out there if it makes a difference.
If I could just figure out how to meld the Outback and the Neon into one car...
