    I recently carried out a lot of research on this querry of yours. Members were very helpful with their informative replies on this forum.

    My Honda Civic Exi 1997 (1500cc) has 13" wheels (factory fitted) but then the ride was too low and with grown up family members sitting in the backseat, the car would hit almost every speedbreaker from underneath. I checked the suspension, it was ok. So I called Honda North (Peshawar) and the tech guy said the recommended tyre/wheel size for my model was 185/70 R14. Off I went to the local market, being low on budget and the need for switching to alloys, I was frustrated. Finally I struck a deal. Traded my 6 months old used YOKOHAMA 13" tyres and standard rims and bought used (in so so condition) 14" Honda Alloys alongwith used Kabuli tyres installed. After 2kms drive, I started hating myself to have comitted the biggest sin on earth.
    So, forced myself to try to accept this but ultimately failed.
    Today I visited a local tyre and wheel shop. Bought brand new full aluminium alloy wheels 15" with 7" width for Rs 19,000/-. Great looking, worth every penny, no regrets at all. Got low profile tyres 195/50 R15.

    Honestly, my advice for you is:

    1. Priority One: Dunlop Le Mans 185/60 R15 with 15" alloys. If you feel the steering wheel to be too heavy, then find 175/60 R15. These would LOOK GOOD and wont be a burden on your car, plus Dunlop Le Mans are cost effective yet trendy and comfy. If you want to scarifice a little comfy drive for more sporty look, better handling and speed, then go for low profile 195/55 R15 on 15" alloys.

    2. Priority Two: 14" alloys with a tyre specs of 185/65 R14 or 185/60 R14.

    Hope this helps.

    alot of numbers are floating around here....my suggestion is as follows:

    step 1 - note what is the tire spec. on your stock 13" wheel
    step 2 - look for the tire size calculator online link in the wheels and tire section (i asked mods to sticky that long time ago but they didnt listen..hence everybody asks the question)

    step 3 - enter your stock size..then select 14" or 15" and it will give you the right or the closest size in that width.

    you can not just go and get any size tire....your speedo will be off.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    @szubri,
    You are right. BTW I selected the rim and tyre size after someone posted that tyre calculator link.

    good job....you can not go wrong with that calculator. i have changed rim sizes from 14 to all the way 17 on my civic and that thing was very helpful all the way.
