Nice Upgrade mate..I think your model is SX (petrol), how much you got for Stock Alloys and Tyres?. Any ideas about 195/55 R 15(Falken Azenis PT722)) or 195/50 R 15(Hankook ventus V2), as i am planning one of them for my car.

Oh alright.
But, why put fake cheap quality replica rims on a C Class?
40L car running on 40k rims.

Such wheels have very poor finish and can break/crack/bend anytime too.

Thanks!!! Yes mine is a SX Petrol. I got 18K for the stock alloys & tyres.

I tried 195/55/R15 ( Yoko S Drives ) but it's a very tight fit. It looks ok without any weight in the rear, but with a couple of rear seat passengers and luggage in the boot, there is a definite chance of the tyres making contact with the wheel arch.

I was told that 195/50/R15 would fit but did not want to take a chance and also compromise the ride quality with a lower profile.
Finally settled for 185/55/R14

V6turbo, What's the modification in it ? It looks the facelifted Civic from OEM except alloys.

Thanks

Anurag, I could make out the Alloys but I don't think it has body kit. To put my point forward here are pics of 2 Honda Civics.

The normal face-lift Civic by OEM

The lines on the running board and the front bumper came as OEM.

The body kit on the Civic.

In the broader sense of the term, I was actually inclined to know if the car has some technical mods as well.

Thanks.

It is not the body kit, simple clean Last production model honda civic with limited urban titanium paint spoiler and new Vossen replica alloys, kinda liked the simple plain look, overall goes well I guess

Go to Lajpat nagar, BK tyre or Universal tyre house, both give good rates and huge collection.
