Man, this car really does have the worst turning radius of anything I’ve ever driven, and I would have guessed it would have been awesome. I hadn’t thought about tire size as a driver, but great to know.
Tire size normally wouldn't affect turn radius so much, but likely did due to how the car was designed. The radius is reduced to prevent us from smashing the wheel into things as we turn. My old NA Neon turned much better even after I put larger tires on.

The overall design of the suspension, wheels, lower submember cross k frame on the SRT4 all contributed to the turning radius being wide, the base neon doesn't nearly have the same issues. That being said, you can put the stock SRT4 rims on a base Neon but not the 50 tires, you have to go with 40s. And that will affect the turning radius heh heh, even with the 40s.
Didn't someone improve turn radius using PT Cruiser hubs or something?
