I m completely noob in cars and stuff but recently i bought a 2011 Honda civic. I was thinking of changing the rims and tyre. I was looking at some rides on pakwheels and then i came across this 2005-2006 Honda Civic with good rims. As i have no idea what size these rims are and same goes with tyres as well. If anyone can guess the rim size and also the tyre and also suggest me if they are good for car or not.
I mean i won't mind fuel as i don't drive much. But i am bit worried about suspension And NO i don't drive crazy. I drive very carefully on bad road.
Walaikum Assalam. I think the first two are 18 inch rims. On increasing the size of your rims, you have to get wider tyres with smaller sidewalls. The small sidewalls will result in the rim now being closer to the road. The numerous potholes and deteriorated roads will damage your rims, chipping them from the edges. A larger wheel will decrease your fuel economy and the ride will become more stiff. The bigger wheels will obviously weigh more so there will be a decrease in acceleration. The braking distance will also increase. I'm not sure about damage to the suspension. Lastly a bigger set of wheels will be costly. My suggestion to you is to either stick with your original rim size or get a good set of rims no more than 16 inches.
For more accurate information go to any tire / rim walla and he will provide precise information. Tire information is in any case printed on the tire. Rim size has to correspond to tire size (printed on tire).
