Firstly, I'm not sure whether 255s will be accomodated. Secondly, I get a pretty rough ride with my 17" 45s and that too with a changed, fully adjustable, coil over suspension. I can't even imagine what it'll be like on a 35!

Vikram is right, 18"s in India are a bad idea especially on a car like the Civic. The most you should have are 225/45 R17's all around, anything bigger & you'll have problems.

225/30 R20 front and 245/30 R20 rear. That's fun. If you kill an ant, you will really and truly regret it.

how would a civic be with 225/50/17 ??? or 205/50/17, i dont see why 225 is needed since so much grip is really not needed but then it looks hot ill agree...

Some how I am not too kicked about Giant wheels with ultra low profile tyres...
Besides practical issues they always reminds me of old day Tangas, 120" wheel with 1" rubber on them...lol

To me the tyre on the wheel has it;s own beauty, and a good balance between Tyre and Wheel is required... But that's just me
I would not go beyond 225, on 17 " wheels, for both aesthetics and practicality.


BTW, any answers for this...

Yep. Have been spotting one Black Laura pretty often nowadays around Bandra. Its mostly parked outside 'Pause' on the Hill road. Looks darn hot and has a well blended bodykit as well.

I dont think it should, because it doesnt involve any electrical or mechanical changes to the vehicle. It is basically a hinge and damper mechanism that bolts to your car's body and on one end and the door on the other end.

Unless the dealership can come up with a valid argument about a particular part faliure that happened because of the vertical door kit installation, which i think is an extremely rare case.
