    You guys are making fuss about 17s on a new CIVIC.
    Em running 17s on a SWIFT. Yes a SUZUKI SWIFT. 215/45/17. Em also running 225/45/17 on 2010 corolla. No issues at all.
    @OP 17s won't do a thing to the suspension or anything on a civic. Plus since you running 50 profile, won't harm a thing with it.

    ^^bro the steering is electronic in swift
    Absolutely no difference in steering feel at all
    the ride has got a little stiff as expected with a 45 profile tyre. Need to be a little bit careful on bumps. Since swift's ride is already stiff so em not bothered even if it gets a little more harsh. Its already harsh enough.
    the only main issue is if you install 215/45/17 tyre
    the rear tyre rubs against the body when a person is sitting on the back seat
    just give 1/2 inch spacers in the rear and its sorted out.

    Didn't bother about the mileage, will check sometime and let you know
    you can go for 205/40/17 size to avoid rubbing but i don't favour 40 profile tyres as they are too much hard. Plus i wanted to go for the widest possible tyres.
    PS tyres are yoko avs db

    right
    chalo no worries
    we learn from mistakes
    and even if you plan to go for 17s afterwards again
    go for it
    it causes no problems at all
    i have been using what you guys call 'oversized' rims for ages now
    never ever faced a single problem regarding suspension or rims/tyres

    Brother Swift is EPS hands down and their is also an indicator on the dash.

    PS cannot afford to offer Hydraulic rack in Swift.

    The last car with a true and pure steering feel was the 8th gen Civic.

    The 9th gen civic and even Accord which costs more than a crore is now EPS.

    Brother the low profile will not give you grip it is the rubber that matters.

    Avs Db is not for grip it is everyday touring tyre that is why it is cheaper in a lower profile.

    Such a small tyre like Bridgestone Potenza Adrenalin RE002 in 195/60 R15 will blow this tyre out in braking or grip and would cut 2-3 feet compare to Yokos.

    Yoko Advan and Toyo Proixes T1R are also much better.

    Brother do not mind but sell your stuff to someone and try Pirelli P7 205/60 R15 you will be amazed by its performance.

    Brother the problem with pirelli is that it's not available in import the tyre which is available is mostly smuggled and tyre size which is available in import is 195 65R15 made in china.

    Bhai Mercedes bhi china men ban rahi hai it does not mean that its of low quality.

    If Pirelli P7 is not available Advan V105 is good but it is not available in 15".

    i didn't say anywhere that low profile gives you more grip
    the wider the tyre, the more grip you have. by rubbing I didn't mean slipping, i meant touching the fender.
    yoko avs has really good performance. my swift doesn't slip at all. not on corners, not under braking. plus how much more grip you want on a 98 bhp motor anyway
    there might be better tyres out there though
