Can we install 17inch low profile tires in Honda Civic 95 without modificiation in Shocks.
What is the maximum size of tires we can install in civic 95 withouth compromising on cars comfort. Today i have seen a civic 2001 the guy was saying he hasn't done any modification with suspesnion and 17inch tires are working fine with his car.
Knowledgable comments from the Gurus are required.
what's the engine capacity of your car?
you can fit 205/40R17's but it's pointless. you'll get almost no grip advantage over 15's & 16's and you'll be slowing your car down with unsprung weight as well as ruining your handling.
205/45R16's shoudl be the largest tyres you fit to your car and even then you will have to keep an eye on the bushes of your suspension as they will wear out quickly on pakistani roads.
The Engine capacity is 1500cc the default engine. So you recommend 205/45 R15?
khurram send me ur msn or email id
i agree with storm bhai
no, 205/45R15 is too small, i suggested 205/45R16
what size rim do you want and i'll tell you what size you can fit.
Gadhay k uper utna wazan daalo jitna woh utha/sambhal sakhay!!
15inch RIM is i think gud choice
@ poster: so u finally bought 95, can u share detials of ur car, (color, price, condition, etc...)
regarding ur query for 17s & LP, don't do that if u r using ur car as a daily runner... 15s r recommended. U need size thn get 205/60/R15.
@V8 205/60R15's are too big for the cars specifications, in that case he might as well fit 18 inch rims to his car as the load on his wheel bearings will be about the same.
@itsexe you can fit the following size 15's to your car: 185/60R15 (603mm) 195/55R15 (596mm) 205/55R15 (607mm) 215/50R15 (596mm)
i'd suggest 205/55R15's if you intend on driving with heavy loads or at high speeds, but i'd suggest 185/60R15's if you want a cheap tyre and good fuel economy (less rolling resistance)
@storm: sir agreed, but m using same size on 95 and runing fine thats y i recommended but still i qouted if need size n looks otherwize ur recommendations r perfect
I have 205/40/17 on my 95 civic
Hi thanks, i think 215/50R15 (596mm) r good. They will INSHA ALLAH look cool.
Khurram,how r u?
i suggest u don't go for over 16. 15" is best for 95 civic.
please read the last part of my previous reply again. i personally thing 215's are too wide and offer too much rolling resistance for the car for little benefit over 205's. also with the incorrect offset rims you may find that your tyres rub your arches a littel on the inside while turning on full lock.
Sorry, i got mistaken, i'm using 195/60 not 205/60
Really sorry, if anyone got destracted decision frm this...
can any body tell me size of 195/70/14 fit for corolla or not?
