Yeah, now remember, thats just my opinion. They just look a little too "bling" for me... too over the top for a Neon. If it were me and I was in your shoes, since your car is essentially stock on the outside I'd lower it, lip kit, things like that before wheels. Just lowering will improve or change the look a lot. To me, again my opinion, aftermarket wheels just look out of place on a car thats at stock height :-? However, do what you want... it's your car, you drive it... if you like one of those wheels don't let my opinion stop you from getting what you really want.

I don't really like any of them. But I do like the idea of black wheels on Blu :thumbup:

#1 is the best if I had to choose one of them you listed. I think they'd go good with your tails.

Hey east coast buddy.... how are you doing?

To answer your question (shamless DeCorsa plug) you should go with these ones, I know that I love them personally. :thumbup:

Image


But since that wasn't one of your choices, :lol: out of the ones that you've narrowed it down to.... I'd have to go with #2

Nice to see you around ;)

I actually thought about #1 myself BUT unless they make em' in a left and right side rim one side will look backwards to the other side.
I don't care for 5 spoke rims at all. Here's one that I do really like though, give it a look.

LOL, Chrysler used to make left hand and right hand threads on their wheels though. That way you'd not have a lug nut come lose from the wheel rotation. The left side wheels were right hand threads and the right side wheels were left hand threads, I kid you not. Not sure when they stopped the practice, probably after some Chevy guy broke off a bunch of wheel studs. LOL


P.S.
Granted, you can only see one side at a time but if someone was doing a walk around to look at your car I'm sure they'd see something a bit "off" with the rims.

Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the back of the car. Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you're going when you hit the wall, and torque is how far you drag the wall with you.
