Saint, you might not get answers as this topic has been flogged to death... better read the Civic threads. You ride is going to be as bumpy as hell if you get 17". Pickup shouldn't be a problem. Coupled with the soft suspension, 17" might not be the right choice. However if you are driving only in the city and wanna show off a hot set of wheels then go for it !!!

Sentil thanks mate, but I have checked with couple of guys driving on 17" with 225/45/17, yes the ride is stiff cos the rubber is less due to low profile, but how about a 225/50/17, one of the guys driving with that says it very close to stock rims drive, how true is that, checking cos the thread has some unanswered questions, also I have bought lovely luking white with mirror lip lenso in 17" and wanna make the right tyre choice, will it touch from the back if 2-3 people sitting, what about the mileage will it drop ????

Anyone can help as I have still not bought tyres but going to buy today 215/50/17 yokohama's rare find but 4 pieces available.

With 3 people in the back and luggage in the boot, the normal stock setup itself bottoms out if you hit a big size pothole and would scrape the bigger speedbreakers. Bangalore speedbreakers are notorious. So as I said it depends on your driving style and where you drive. If you are going to have a full load regularly in your car then everyone has to get ready for a stiff ride and some amount of scraping !!

Sentil & others, I have my new 17" wheels on my civic AT and beleive you in me, they are awesome, I need to thank one Bhpian who advised me to go for 215/50/17 his name is varun M here, they ride is awesome and there is no difference in the ride, it makes me feel as though I am driving on stock wheels, I picked up mind boggling Lenso wheels with a red samurai logo with yoko tyres, I want to post the pics of my hot luking civic which is my own creation and very sure that every one here will luv it, its need and classy. will figure out shortly to post the pics.

For all civic owners as per me, if you are considering to go for 17" then go for 215/50/17 there will be no problem at all.

Cheers

ALso I have removed the original air that they fill and put the nitrogen air in the tyres, if there is a fuel station who fills it then you should go for it, it helps you in many ways:
- no likeage in air-pressure
-great & better tyre performance ,
-no rusting on to your wheels and a slight mileage enhancement...

But there are benefits and no side effects.. I have been using it for quite sometime.
Cheers,

Saint
