larger tires in the rear?

what would a civic look like with say 20"s in the back on low profile

and i dunno 17/18 on the fronts?

ive seen some cars round here like this. but never a civic. and think it might look hawt if u got the same rim design. i want 20's lol.. but dont think i could make the car drivable much better then a strate line

ABS doesn't like it
If you want staggered wheels, buy a RWD car.
Can you say understeering pig?

I have seen idiots keeping oem 15" steel black wheel in the front and 17" after market rim in the back.

Not impressive, don't be one of them.

then just get a staggered fitment lowering springs, like the Neuspeeds...that should handle the gap you're talking about

20s in the rear and 17/18's up front? hope your joking.


stick with one size. getting wider tires in the rear seems reasonable though.

is it bad to run some azenis 205/50/15s in the front and ziex 195/60/15s in the back? because i got some gsr wheels for my azenis, and the azenis is only available in 50 series as far as 15s go.

isn't 7.5" pushing it? i dunno too much about calculating the offsets, but i'm sure if you do it right, you can squeeze something back there without starting to hit stuff in there.

is this for show?
