    i would rather stick to original size with a civic, which would be in ur case 185/65/15?

    civic suspension sucks because it wears out really quick with big tyres and rims or bad roads
    Life is short and very unpredictable just like a Quarter mile .....

    Sir 195/55 R 15 is the best possible size for your EXI.

    185/65 R14 is the stock size.

    If you want too much 205/55 R15 will be fine but it is definitely bigger in size to 195/55 but better then your current size of 195/65 which are definitely oversize.

    Get some good quality tires like Bridgestone GR80 or Yokohama Db V550 or ES501, do not go for SP SPorts 9000, they will wear very fast, would not last longer and can ruin your suspensions.

    Sir 205/65 R15 is 2 inches bigger in diameter then your stock tire, it is too big.

    SP SPorts 9000 are sports tires for race tracks, next only to semi slicks.

    Get some comfortable tires, Yoko Db ES501 are best.

    Go for 205 X 60 R15, 55 series will nbot work on bumpy roads, Bridgestone is best choice!

    Sir

    They are very good for grip and braking but they are not good for your car's suspension, your backbone, are expensive, do not lasts more then 40K kms.

    So you can choice between Yokohama ES501 and SP Sports 9000 and 185/65 R14 and 195/55 R15 or maximum 205/55 R15.
