i have a 96 on stock suspension and im running 17's with 205/40/r17 and have no problems at all....either way i wouldnt go bigger than 16 cuz i think y 17's look too big =/

i have 16's on mine (they came with when we bought the car) so they are not a tire or rim that is actually mad for the car so anytime i put weight in the back they rub like fu**er as long as you get 16'2 that are made for a civic youll be fine

keep in mind...the tire & wheel size according to specs are the tires & wheels that are supposed to be with the car for life. if not...ul wind up having suspension problems...handling problems...braking problems...etc. only way to veer from that keeping bigger tires & wheels is the entire suspension has to be redone. just like a truck. if u give a truck a truck lift with bigger wheels & tires...u dont wanna keep the stock suspension...u have to upgrade.

Don't go bigger than 17's. 18s are too big for civics

"205 55/16" is the tire size your supposed to have.

.........thats if u have the model from 06 - 11. the older hondas have a bit bigger size. all yah have to do is google in the "yr/make/model tire size" & bam. if u up in size...your gonna have serious issues as i listed above. depending on the size of the tires upsize...also that has to go up in size are the rotors & brake pads. you'd be stupid to F_ _ _ up your honda by upsizing unless u wanna dump alot more $ into the major under-carriage including shocks struts. ul most likely have to give the civic a body lift so it doesnt rub on the wheel well or when u turn your gonna cause extensive damage to the car.
