The spacer should help. 235 45 17s are a little tall for the neons. I always had my best luck with 245 40 17s and 35 to 38 offset which can be adjusted by a spacer. I think I might have some old pics of my 05 if I can find them somewhere around here. Stowaway will always lead you in the safest direction. Helped me alot in the past.
