    Bro can you be a bit more specific on following?

    1. What model is your Civic?
    2. What do you actually want? More comfort or aggressive/sporty handling with no regard to comfort?
    3. What is the size of your alloy wheels?

    I wouldn't suggest going above 205/55/R16 if you want a comfortable ride.

    185/65R15=621mm
    205/55R16=632mm

    differnce is 1.77% but that's about as good as it gets for a plus size without rubbing issues and unrealistic tyre sizes (like 195/55R16)

    However i should point out that 215/50R16 are perfect in terms of overall tyre diameter but they would possibly cause rubbing issues.

    recently installed... MAXXIS MA-P1 195/65/R15 in an exi.. the ride quality increased.. this particular tyre is softest of all... noise level is unbeleivingly low... and the traction in dry and wet is awesum...

    this tyre is a bit oversize for exi...but no problems just speedo error... which is not much..
    Do the environment a favour, Use less airconditioning .. and please walk to the shop to get a pack of cigarretes..its only a 3 min walk..

    ne tyre size not having R15 will require you to change your tyre size...


    i suggest... get 195/65/R15..

    brand and tyre model ..is very important as far as the noise and handling is concerned...

    i couldnt be more satisfied with any other tyre... than Maxxis MA-P1.... very low noise.. and very soft tyre... hence comfortable ride..... dunlop are not that soft...

    I am using Yokohama AVS ES100 195/60/15 in my 96 civic. Nice soft tire with excellent road grip and low noise.

    Here's a pic.
