i forgot to mention that i lowered my car with neuspeed sport springs, which is a 1/8" drop, right? but yeah...i don't know if dropping the car makes a difference cuz some ppl tell me that if you get the wrong size tires or something, if you hit a bump or pot hole them the tires will hit the fenders or you'll hit a flat tire more often...

*sigh* 205/45/17 is the recommended size from the Honda Dealers. They sell 17"s rims with 205/45/17 and H&R sport springs as dealer options. if you are using +42mm Offset.. you shouldnt have any problems. I've also seen a civic with 215/40/18 tires & rims set as an option as well.. you shouldnt have any problems. I am pretty sure the Honda Dealership have already thought of the proper fitment already. 1/8" drop springs. what are you talking about??????[IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG][IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-confused.gif[/IMG]

Yeah I am going to go with 215/45/17 so I don't add miles but subtract a little [IMG]i/expressions/face-icon-small-tongue.gif[/IMG] Plus more tire equals more comfort thats my big worry.

going with 215/45/17 is a good choice... better handling i agree.. but wider tires = less fuel efficient. =]
