Sorry. Besides the bolt circle pattern, the center hole is important as it holds the wheel centered to prevent stress on the lug nut studs, wheel offset is calculated into "scrub radius" which affects handling and eliminates a serious brake pull if one of the two brake hydraulic systems springs a leak. There is also the clearance to prevent the wheels from hitting the brake calipers and wheel weights from hitting the struts to consider.
GM is very fond of making sure no else's parts will fit their cars so you must buy their parts. There's a reason they are a very profitable company. They are very good a separating their owners from their money. For that reason, swapping parts TO a Chrysler product won't work either. In the past, Chrysler was real good about interchanging parts between their cars but because the Neon is its own size / model / body style, you'll need wheels from a Dodge or Plymouth Neon.
