Default Can I put 20 inch rims on a neon 2003?

The rims I wanna get only come in 20 X 8.5 and 20 X 10. Can they fit on my neon? What is the rim size limit of a neon? If they can't fit is there something I can have installed to make them fit? (i'm sorry but i must have these rims on my car..lol google ruff racing r943)

lol no way man, i have 16's which rub when i turn, the sidewall is 50 rubber on them and a lower profile is around 30-35 so i could fit bigger but i got them used for 400 with the tires. Im not sure about inches but my tires and 225 and im getting 205, again i bought them used and the idiot had the front ones wider.

unless they made some kind of a elastic band tire, probably not, you would need something like a 205/25r20 which i dont think theres anything like that, it would be impossible to install. plus if their was a way, the ride on your car would suck. use to own a Cobalt SS with 225/40r18 and they sucked. I actually liked my 215/55r16 winter tires i had on the car, ride was way better and if the road was uneven the 18s would pull the car left or right.... our roads are sh*ty here in Alberta.

Alvin anything is possible as long as you have time and a lot of $$$ for custom body work. 20x8.5 is a bit much and the 20x 10's are totally out of the question. You could look into redoing your wheel wells, with a "tub" style, and the use of air bags. Plus you would need to modify your fender by either adding a fender flares. I currently have 19 x 8's on my car and I had to do a lot of cutting and grining on the frame, fenders etc.

But like I said anything is possible, but you will need to get rid of your stock suspension, move to a full coilover setup ( BC, KW, Megan) or air ride setup. Hope this helps you out.

19s looks so awesome on 19s neon makes me want some 19s on my sxt but to be safe and I dont want to do the work 18s look just as nice with some coilovers probably cheaper for a 18inch wheel and tire package than 19s.
