OMG! that looks dope!

I can't believe you don't swap the wheels back and forth between your 2 cars like my Dad does, lets see how it looks with the SSRs!

Thanks guys :lol: Vin... I'm actually planning on doing that to see what they look like and see how well they fit since the SRT offset is different from the Neon. The wheels i'm looking at for it are 17x8 w/ 35mm offset and the stock SRT wheels are 45mm. meaning they'll stick out a little over 1.25" more than stock. I just want to see where that will put me for the fender as it will probably stick out and not look right :-/ But yeah... I'm debating on swapping them over for this weekend since we have an SRT meet here at Hooters on Sunday. :)

Camera... it's a little outdated since the newer models are out now but it's a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ20

(I still rock the 2MP Kodak you guys were calling ghetto 2 years ago so don't feel bad :))

I didn't know SRTs used a different offset then regular 2nd gens. Different knuckles/hubs F and R?

Yeah the SRT knuckles are different in the front as the brake setups are completely different. The rear spindles are almost the same as the R/T and ACR spindles but the tension strut bolt point at the bottom is just a little different to allow more clearance by the wheel. Brake setup is the same, calipers are the same, rotors are a tad thicker but overall it's identical. Front is way different though for brake setups...

I heart your Neons. Both of them are so clean and the white one looks so good dropped. =P~ Poster children for the perfect 2gn R/Ts. :D

^^^^ hott as hell!!!

I'd lay off the darkening of the headlights though that throws it off i think.

I think I made it a little too dark :-?

They'll be these...

So you can't hardly see the racoon style but darkens up the housing a little bit.

Since the Type-C's come in two different colors (Black and Gold)... I made another chop :lol:

na stick with the black or gunmetal w/e they are.

The gold just doesn't seem to flow and jsut draws a lot of attention to the wheels.
Specially the red calipers don't go with it. IMO.
