    Default Changing from 15" to 17" wheels on 9th gen honda civic, please guide

    Hello I plan on changing the tyres of my 2013 civic prosmatic. The stock tyre size is 195/65/R15 and since I want bigger rims I'm planning on getting 215/50/R17 tyres so I can fit 17" rims. I have done all calculations myself and this is giving me a change of overall wheel diameter to sidewall height less than 3% which is acceptable according to most online threads i have read. But still I would like your opinions on how this would affect anything like car performance, fuel economy etc. Thank you.

    I upgraded to exact same specs. 215/50/17 is the best size in 17s in my opinion for this civic without dropping the car.
    The car is pretty comfortable, I drove it on motorway, within city, gt road and all the way to mallam jabba. U will definitely take a hit on consumption. Worst figure i have managed during summers is 10.1km/L.

    Only mileage will be effected, no damage or effect on suspension.......you can even fit 19s in this car without much mods.

    On my stock tyres right now the best figure I get on economy mode within city is 10.6 km/L. So how much drop should I be expecting per litre with the new tyres?

    Expect it coming under 10 for sure.

    Increasing ur Rim and tire width will surely effect ur fuel economy. Its a compromise between Fuel vs Looks.
