    @hashim bhai,

    Thanks !

    @Mesho

    id recommend 195/60/15. 65 profile might rub with the fenders, so i wont suggest that. steermatic shocks themselves arnt hard, its just that the stock tyres provided are low profile performance tyres. best of luck (Y)

    @ahsen

    wht error are u talking abt ? lol it just effect the meter reading not the car speed

    it will not att all touch the fenders for sure
    as idsi and civic 95 got the same stock size ... so i got 17 rims wid 45 tyres and still it never touched the fenders at all !!

    and bigger tyres are always +ve point for ur cars .. not the rims just the tyres ..

    anyways

    overall bigger tire will mean, more weight on the axles, more inertia to move, more mass to stop by those tiny brakes, bad braking, bad cornering, lower suspension life, poor gear ratio effect etc

    further, the speed of car wrt to speedometer can cause undue fines, bad management of speed, less accurate driving for new drivers who rely on speedometer rather than sensing actual speed.

    so keep the original diameter/circumfrence of the tire/tyre same as original tyre unless u know wt ur doin as ahsen_rg stated

    stick with stock rims....go for 205/50/R15 tyres. I ve heard good things about pirelli and yoko but in my personal experience good year are the best
