depending upon the wheel well depth you might not have to change anything, although new suspension combined with the wheels tires will give it more stability and a sleeker fresher look. Just measure from the center of the wheel hub of course allowing for th tire height and that will give you a deffinate answer. Also if you decide to get suspension go to andysautosport.com they usually have some good deals on skunk2 or even Mugen and not to be mean but if you don't know what Mugen is then don't even think about tuning a Honda.

i measured them ,they are 13.2" . i am trying to get team dynamic 17" white wheels and 205/40/HR17 strata zeno tires at http://www.victoriatire.com/wheel_TEAM%20DYNAMIC_MONZA%20WHITE_HONDA_CIVIC%2088-96_17_17 . thank you for answering my question if i get that packge ,do i have to change anythings and if i dont change it,they gonna kill my car's any parts? can you check it for me ,please...

These wheels seem like they are correct for the car and the selling company seems fairly reputable. I have a 08 si that comes standard with 17 and it isn't a whole lot different from your generation set up wise so i say go for it the only difference you will notice without a new coilover package is your car will sit a little bit higher, and the only way to fix that is springs or suspension. The wheels look nice too so have fun.

not sure why you want 17's. they are going to just make u slower (heavier rim with more weight towards the outside of circumference) and they will look silly
