    @fireblade, You are using 17s on 9th Gen Civic. I am planning to upgrade my wheels & tires also on 9th Gen. Can you please tell me real effect on ride comfort you faced?

    Looking for your kind help.

    Bro, you changed mind and will use 17s? As in below thread you guided me and said they will ruin drive.

    A very interesting thread. I had been contemplating to install 17 inchers in my ride 8th Gen Civic. Did a lot of research. Test drove a similar ride with 215/45-R17 profile coupled with Lenso Project D Spec D (light weight alloys) in Islamabad, PWD, Bahria Town and it was an unforgettable experience. Will NOT install them. Sure there are many respected members who may differ with me BUT fact of the matter is the universal fact that a stock tyre size is selected for balancing comfort and road performance. Please note that I've just referred to tyre size and not tyre type. OEM suppliers for a particular tyre size for the same vehicles may be different. We get Eurostars here. Others may get Goodyear or Bridgestone etc. Going up +1 or +2 is perfectly acceptable in today's automobiles. What we consider as a norm is select tyre size by size calculator and the tyre itself by doing research on the Internet, talk to tyre walas and blah blah. Almost all of us hold a rim in one hand a feel the weight like a dumbbell but How many of us weigh a tyre? Sure we see many high end luxury or performance cars or whatever you feel like calling them with 17" and 18" profiles but dear friends their suspension, specially the dampeners are tuned to take those wheels. We in Pakistan look towards Corollas and Civic as sports cars just by merely installing bigger rims and cosmetic changes. Not even a cold air intake is going to alter its DNA.
    Back to topic, what my experience has taught me and helped numerous happy and content friends is to strike the right balance. It is the 16x6.5-7 OEM wheel you should be looking for, period. Trust me, the noises your car will once develop from front to rear through 17 inch wheels will not just go away whenever you feel like asking forgiveness for the sin and reverting back to stock. Talk about screwing a new ride instantly. Get OEM rims or branded light weight ones in 16" or stock 15" and you will be happy. But that's just me. Your MMW.

    Yes, I still stand by my word. Please note the dates of the two contradicting posts and you will have your answer. I still love those 17" but the reality overtakes everything else. Also, if you are doing it for looks, you better be ready to lower your ride in case your selection says 215/45-R17 (optimal) and even with 215/50-R17 as this will result into wider gap between the outer dimension of the tyre and wheel arch giving it a Corollaish look and maybe "feel".
    Dear bhasnain, aim is to guide you in light of my own experience. If you intend keeping your ride for 3-4 years, take my advice, if just 1-2 years, go with 17 inchers.

    The rims that I asked Fireblade for turned out to be "staggered", which is again a deal breaker for me. Your Mileage May Vary.

    Might be some problem with your friend's car or tyres. 215/50/17 is Perfect.

    SilentAssassin, your concern is very valid BUT 17" is not perfect. The perfect size is the one which is TESTED, TRIED AND CHOSEN for optimal fuel consumption, daily driving in a wide array of road conditions, weather and handling/stability (That happens to be the 15" still offered around the world). Now, if you go to Honda Automobiles website for USA, there are various grades of Civics. They all are customizable starting from 15" to 18". The rim in those cases are optimized for the suspension the car has to offer but Honda knows that fuel consumption and load on the suspension will be affected (not the point of devastation). Let me put it this way, a customer buying an Si grade Coupe Civic with 17" or 18" Honda Factory Performance Alloys is not your typical fuel saving conscious driver.

    Brother, this profile offers slightly more and therefore better cushion while encountering different road conditions. It is a profile that people choose (50 side wall) in contrast to 45 side wall. It works also. However, there will be difference in speedometer readings and decreased acceleration. Personally, I could live with speedometer difference but a decrease in acceleration, load on suspension and performance in braking (please note that your car's ABS behavior may also change) are all deal breakers for me.
    But lets face it. If I can afford good dampeners with a good brand tuned suspension, 17" will be my choice. Till then, I love my car like everyone else and rattling is a nightmare for which I cannot always crank up the music to ignore.

    17” non OEM wheel (and even in some cases OEM) may reduce performance including fuel average, acceleration and braking. Overall diameter of the wheel with tyre even if same to stock or within specified perimeters may entail rotating the heavier/larger rim and tyre (remember the wheel being outwards from the center of rotation). The increase in this case will entail more power required to accelerate or slow down. So you get slower acceleration and longer stopping distances. <o:p></o:p>This can be reduced by choosing OEM light alloy wheels for that particular or similar model. Remember, Accord’s suspension is better and different than that of Civic’s. So it is not necessary that OEM accord rims will do the job just fine every time.<o:p></o:p>
