Re: tire size

what would you go for, for 18" more drive quality?

225/40/18 ?? For Honda Civic 2004 EX Sedan 4 Door?

Re: tire size

click the link in my signature for a tire calculator.. int hat thread there's a link to an actual tire calculator that lets you input your OEM tire size and find out which tires will mess with your speedometer the least.. for 17's, 215/45-17's will be the best match to OEM

for 18's, 205/40-18. with 225/40's, your speedometer will be 2.5% slow (at 60 MPH indicated, you'll be at 61.5 MPH actual)
