The city is already an unstable car at higher speeds and any height increment will make it more unstable. Its no longer in fashion to make the car look faster than it actually is, get rid of the skirts they look extremely cheap, get 14" alloys and good tyres, do not go for higher sizes as the ride quality would be extremely compromised.

if you are serious get things done under the hood rather than going for external body mods as you will(like everyone else) in no time loose interest and selling the car would be difficult then with all those mods. If you want real advise, get 14" alloys lower the car a bit, get rid of the skirts. Check Pranavt's thread its like a bible for hondas.

Just my 2 cents

Well Avi, that day as all other Team-BHP meets was tremendous fun! The OHC is performing well (within it's limited capabilities), have some crazy plans with the OHC in the near future! For now wheels are aligned ans the wobbling is sorted! Thanks for the complement! The Rims were the best I could get for the price and in my perspective, they go well with the OHC!
Cheers,
SGC!

Dynamic looking alloys, could you please post some pics of the wheels fitted on the car?
Also how much did the Yokos cost you?
Regards,
Hari.

The shock (spring/damper) will move with the wheel, so you'll not rub anything. Well 195's do rub against the body under hard cornering. But I guess you'll not do that on normal road. I have the track to blame for that.

EDIT : Your car under-body need a proper wash

My stock wheels were in a very bad state so the car was kept idle for a few months and was unable to take the car for washing or servicing
