okay so i've never bought wheels for my neon before or any other compact car just big stuff that use inches instead of mm. so my cars lowered around an inch and a half or two inches. i want either 17x7.5 or 17x8 what backspacing do i need?

17x8 is quite big. Not sure what offset you would need but honestly that is such a large rim that I doubt you'll have room for rim. Just make sure that the backspacing is around 5 inches or so. That's all the room you'll need, but you need a tire that will clear the strut AND the fender.
