It should be either 205/50 or 205/45. Someone can confirm.
i exactly meant that.with lower profile you would have got more appreciation without the scraping problem . but anyways its your car and you like it . so enjoy.

I do agree with you all and really appreciate your comments.I used to have 205/50 all over and they were kind off behaving well to be honest.I was on the airport road in delhi leading to dwarka.I was speeding 120 in that road until i see porthole sort of thing in the road and couldnt manouver cause another car was running besides me.My car front left tyre went to ditch came out(bursted) ,rear left tyre went through the same came out bursted and honda was dead on the road.I found a shop nearby and he had good year 205/55(I was helpless cause none of my friend was in delhi and i knew nobody and i was running out of time cause i needed to pick my relative so i had to installed those at that time).I do have spacers at the back to compensate.Moreover i only ride it in city that too very less cause half a year i stay in US and this cars runs like 2kms in one month may be.

Having said that i do agree with the comments of pranavt,ankit and honda3938 and firmly believe that 205/45 or 50 will be a better running profile but like i said its not what i wanted it to be like,Its just just circumstances that lead me to do that.I have front two on 205/55 and rear two on 205/50.

What's done is done so let me not revisit it. What i would do without incurring more expenses is: remove the honda stickering from the windshield(it is not even centered!!).
Remove the H badge from "H" Honda on the grill and reapply just the Honda in the center. Will make a world of a difference.

EDIT: Your wipers are attached to high. They must be coming out of the windscreen on the drivers side during usage. Remove them and fix them at a bit lower angle.

See pic that i have edited below:

I agree with Tejas.

Either remove the 'H' logo or remove the 'Honda'. It will look better for sure.

Also, I can not stand the black around the mesh grill on the bumber. It just lacks character.
Please get the whole bumper painted to the original Golden colour or remove the sticker, whatever you have done. Same can be done on the upper mesh grill.

These are just my personal opinions and not intended otherwise.
