Looks like I am scoring some riiiiiiiiims, 15x7 +30 offset so they will be nice and flush. Cool

205/50 or wider? From what I understand I can go all the way up to a 225/45 before needing spacers. I don't want a tire much taller and 22.75", the height of 185/60-14 used on ACRs.

The car will be on Konis w/ Eibach Pro Kits so not too low, probably gonna rock some noticeable negative camber.

I've actually never had 15"s on a Neon before....

i believe you will need a small spacer for 225's i know i will need them. so i would suggest going a tad smaller to be in the clear. however mine are 16's if that makes much of a difference..?

195/50/15, done. They are 22.7" tall also, and are 7.9" wide, so there wont be any stretch. The only problem with 225/45 is that they aren't very widely made by many companies.

I didn't know ACR's came with 185/60/14, I thought all neons came with 185/65/14's.

Most Neons come with the 14"x5-1/2" steel wheels with a 5-bolt x 100mm circle. The alloy wheels for Sports, ACRs, and R/Ts are 14"x6" with a 5-bolt x 100mm circle. Most of these cars have 185/65-HR14 tires, except ACRs, which usually come with 185/60 or 175/65-HR14 tires.



My '97 ACR coupe had 185/60 when I got it, I have read it was mostly or possibly even exclusively ACR coupes that got the 60-series tires.

I need to bust out a tire calculator to be sure, but I think I'm gonna go with 205/50R15.
