Default Dodge Neon rims

Will OEM 15" 03-05 Dodge Neon aluminium rims bolt up on a 2005 PT Cruiser? I found a set for cheap and want to get them if they will bolt right up with no issues. Thanks in advance for any help.

Only way I know to be certain is to try them - aside from bolt pattern and offset, there's clearing brake calipers..
I am quite sure they would - if yours is not a turbo - I know the Neon SRT-4 wheels fit all PTs.

Being a turbo won't matter. There have been a few here that have run regular 15" steel wheels on their GT's with no issues. I am sure they will fit.

Just need taller tires. The cruisers have about 1" larger diameter tires than neons. These are 235/45 R17 tires on my cruiser. These are 7" wide wheels however. Neon and stock pt wheels are only 6" wide. I can't remember what size tires go with 15" cruiser wheels.

Thanks! My 05 PT has 195/65/15 on it now with just hubcaps and I got a great deal on 4 OEM 15" aluminum wheels from an 04 Neon. Just wanted to upgrade to a nicer wheel than the basic wheel I have now.

Angry Re: Dodge Neon rims

Well I got my new rims from the 04 Dodge Neon and had them mounted to new tires and put them on the car and they look great but unfortunately they won't work due to the fronts rubbing the brake calipers! I called a tire shop and they were totally against me adding a spacer to the OEM wheels to offset it so there is no rub. Guess my brother gets a free set of wheels for his car!

This is strange. Is your cruiser a GT or Limited Edition w/ 2.4L Turbo? If so, they have bigger calipers on the front. I don't know much about non-turbo oe calipers. I thought they were the same as the neon to be honest. It's hard to tell by the photo but if they barely rub its possible to grind down where they rub. A member on this forum had to do the same thing to make 19" Caliber SRT wheels fit.

Here's the link: Caliber SRT wheels on a PT Turbo!!!

Hey a 3/16 " spacer is all you would need and would not have any affect on anything. Its done all the time. If it were 16" wheel. No problem. Wasn't aware you were going 15" aluminium. But the spacer will be safe.
