      It doesn't need wider but taller tyre ... 215/60/16 or 225/60/16 will be good on looks and works both. Ride will be more comfortable on bumpy roads and ride height will be few mm up which prevent it from speed breaker damages and make the car look more big and meaner.

      I thought they are offering lunar silver metallic this time and not alabaster. Atleast that is what their website says

      Hi-Octane update & information:

      As discussed and posted in this thread earlier the news of an authentic source regarding 87+ fuel. @fazalwahab11375 advised me to dig deeper into this matter.

      So I had this lengthy conversation with my source (sorry cannot disclose info on the name etc) in the petroleum industry and here is a brief of the conversation that took place.

      The government has already signed an agreement with all refineries to locally produce 88. Now like quoted earlier that "it's complicated" here is the detail of that complication: apart from the regular production of 88 the government has floated and proposed an idea (NOT ASSURED OR CONFIRMED THIS UPCOMING PART) of importing minimum 92 as fuel in Pakistan is not entirely refined locally but also imported. The 92 will then be mixed to 88 and on average what we will get is 90. But that too will depend on the oil company providing it how much ratio it mixes. It could be 91 it could be 88.5 it could be 89. It could be 88.5. But considering the practice in Pakistan I doubt when they can save 92 by mixing less they will save it. Hence the term proposed for this new upgraded fuel is 87+ and it covers a wide range of octane number. The part where supply and import of 92 grade is concerned has not yet been promised as the negotiations for this part have been facing complications and disagreement between the two parties.

      However the local production of 88 has gone through a final agreement and implementation will be in action after November 2016.

      Furthermore, Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan has been a major role player out of the entire automobile industry in this improvement and according to my source since they have been having detailed correspondence with Atlas, he himslef suggests to hold buying Turbo for another year as you will face availability issues with fuel. Though they can't really say of Turbo will create issues on 88 or not thats not for them to decide or comment, but Honda point blank has specified 91 minimum for Turbo. The 92 import part is not in finalisation yet and there are chances it may go down the drain BUT local refinery upgradation to 88 is a YES and a GO starting around November.

      So totally your choice now to make the decision you think is better in the light of this information as of now.

      The suspension is not designed to withstand that kind of load with such a massive increase in percentage. The drive will be ruined and so will the suspension be burdened. Kindly don't misguide others and study such a suggestion and it's ramifications before posting. Here is a reference of diametric variation in the sizes you suggested and check anywhere you want to. A more than 3% variation max is a no go area for the car.

      Notice the percentage variation on your guessed sizes in the attached images compared to stock size. Hopefully you guys can infer why is variation percentage visible in the bottom highlighted red instead of green. There is a method to changing tyre sizes. Its a Civic not a Wagon

      If they had to make the car more comfortable by putting huge tyres they would have already done it themselves.

      Very informative. Thanks a lot for sharing. However I would like to add something if you don't mind. This picture is from a fuel filler lid of a 2013 Mercedes Benz E-250. As I'm sure you know, it's a 1.8L turbo charged straight-4. I've driven this car 41,000KM over the last 3-4 years. And 95% of the time it has been filled up with regular petrol since hi-octane is hard to get. The recommended fuel is 95RON and minimum required is 91 . but it has been running perfectly fine on 87. Engine sounds and performs exactly like brand new. No issues at all. And any car enthusiast knows that German engines are much more sensitive to lower grade fuels than Japanese ones. So in my humble opinion, the 1.5Turbo Honda engine shouldn't have too many issues running on 87. What do you think?Name:  1469613700808.jpg

      "Network Fuels

      Total Parco offers a variety of top quality fuels on its service stations to suit the needs of every customer and is at the forefront of taking new initiatives in the oil industry. It was the first OMC in Pakistan to launch 90RON unleaded petrol under the brand name of Hi-Super without any additional cost to the customer."

      Sir totally agreed, I myself have been driving an E200 without hi-octane without any sort of issues at all. But that is not the point in discussion. Information is being shared for those who are not willing to take a risk driving their cars under 91 with teething problems and warranty risks which may be by manufacturer even if the fault arises from a manufacturing defect but traces of using un specified fuel may take the blame away from them and the owner bears loss.

And 95% of the time it has been filled up with regular petrol since hi-octane is hard to get. The recommended fuel is 95RON and minimum required is 91 . but it has been running perfectly fine on 87. Engine sounds and performs exactly like brand new. No issues at all. And any car enthusiast knows that German engines are much more sensitive to lower grade fuels than Japanese ones. So in my humble opinion, the 1.5Turbo Honda engine shouldn't have too many issues running on 87. What do you think?Name:  1469613700808.jpg

      Yes same , kept euros on my Gli then switched to Yokos so that I can say that atlest I tried the euros ..
      Now will keep the BG to get first hand experience of them and form my own opinion.
      The person who said, " money can't buy happiness". Clearly didn't know where to shop.

A more than 3% variation max is a no go area for the car.

      Notice the percentage variation on your guessed sizes in the attached images compared to stock size. Hopefully you guys can infer why is variation percentage visible in the bottom highlighted red instead of green. There is a method to changing tyre sizes. Its a Civic not a Wagon

      If they had to make the car more comfortable by putting huge tyres they would have already done it themselves.

      As discussed and posted in this thread earlier the news of an authentic source regarding 87+ fuel. @fazalwahab11375 advised me to dig deeper into this matter.

      So I had this lengthy conversation with my source (sorry cannot disclose info on the name etc) in the petroleum industry and here is a brief of the conversation that took place.

      The government has already signed an agreement with all refineries to locally produce 88. Now like quoted earlier that "it's complicated" here is the detail of that complication: apart from the regular production of 88 the government has floated and proposed an idea (NOT ASSURED OR CONFIRMED THIS UPCOMING PART) of importing minimum 92 as fuel in Pakistan is not entirely refined locally but also imported. The 92 will then be mixed to 88 and on average what we will get is 90. But that too will depend on the oil company providing it how much ratio it mixes. It could be 91 it could be 88.5 it could be 89. It could be 88.5. But considering the practice in Pakistan I doubt when they can save 92 by mixing less they will save it. Hence the term proposed for this new upgraded fuel is 87+ and it covers a wide range of octane number. The part where supply and import of 92 grade is concerned has not yet been promised as the negotiations for this part have been facing complications and disagreement between the two parties.

      However the local production of 88 has gone through a final agreement and implementation will be in action after November 2016.

      Furthermore, Honda Atlas Cars Pakistan has been a major role player out of the entire automobile industry in this improvement and according to my source since they have been having detailed correspondence with Atlas, he himslef suggests to hold buying Turbo for another year as you will face availability issues with fuel. Though they can't really say of Turbo will create issues on 88 or not thats not for them to decide or comment, but Honda point blank has specified 91 minimum for Turbo. The 92 import part is not in finalisation yet and there are chances it may go down the drain BUT local refinery upgradation to 88 is a YES and a GO starting around November.

      So totally your choice now to make the decision you think is better in the light of this information as of now.

      So can you tell us that is this information valid nation wide or for just Attock Oil Refineries ?

      Applicable as a "minimum" standard of 88 for all.

      Asalam o Alikum guys

      I have been a silent reader of this forum since day 1. I was eagerly awaiting the launch of Civic X in Pakistan and I visited Honda Classic Islamabad on the day of the launch. I was amazed by the beauty of this car. I know many people have highlighted numerous quality issues with the cars displayed by Honda but i sincerely hope that the actual cars delivered by honda would be much better.

      I could not follow this forum the last couple of days so this might be a repost, however, I am attaching some pics of Civic X hard top model in lunar silver displayed at Honda Empire Mirpur

      I have owned few German turbo cars and yes they work fine with super regular fuel but the engine wont perform same as high-octane even wont give better fuel average. For civic it will work fine but the turbo is boosting around 16.5psi(1.1bar) which is higher than other turbo car boost....high boost need high octane fuel so i hope everyone wont fill regular super atleast i wont dont want to risk the engine/turbo life
      My lugnuts require more torque than your Vtec can put out...
