what other types of cars have the same wheel bolt pattern (5x100) as my 2001 neon?

The below have the same bolt pattern but the offset may differ...

ok here is a list of the 5 lug cars that have the same bolt pattern as the Neons. There may be a few odd balls from each year that don't fit but for the most part where I have checked it is correct. Haven't got a hold of each car myself to measure .. only about 3/4 of the list I have actually measured myself .

Editor's Note: Note that while the bolt patterns may be correct, the offset and center bore may be wrong so the wheels still may not fit. In particular, newer Subarus and Volkswagens tend to run much higher offsets than Neons, and those wheels will probably not work without spacers.

Most of the vehicles on the list (non DCX) have different hub diameters don't they?
Since the weight is supposed to ride on the hub (hub-centric) on Neons, wouldn't this cause a problem with centering, strain on the hub and possible lug failure. I had a '88 Dodge Shadow that I decided to put Toyota wheels on. They had the same pattern but the center hub hole was bigger. I thought it would work OK but the lug bolts started breaking and after replacing two on the drivers side and one on the passenger side, I put the oems back on and didn't have any more trouble.
