Tommy go to neons.org home page there's a wheel/tire section . It will allow you to pick various sizes/ give speedo error . Hope this helps.

tthrift, you will want to stay within plus or minus 3% of the orginal tire height in the front, here's a couple of handy tire calculators:

Oh, youll tuck tire. 20s in the rear are no problem...18s in teh front is perfect. Cant wait to see it. Eventually after I get more important things done, Im going to get 20s for my rears as well...

I almost tuck rear w/ a 3 inch drop and 18s...

Cheri.. in our AZ chapter of Local Finesse has 20's and 18's. She doesnt have the right offset to tuck the 20's though but she knows what will fit.

If that link works dont get excited... The picture of that PT laying on the ground is a fake. It is really low but the 20's sit on the tire. Also it is a totally different color now with different interior. It's on hydro's now but I believe when she finds the rims she wants she is changing it to an air set up.

Here is a link for a PT that lays.. They may be 17's but I keep um really clean..

Here is a link to her car the way it sits now.. 18's and 20's.. If you study the picture long enough you might find one or two other mods she has done to her PT.. Good luck..
