2mm is too small, you really think it's going to make a difference? I wouldn't bother even with the low GC of the Civic.

Actually 205/65-15 is also possible but will raise the GC by 6mm and also introduce speedo error.

A good size is 215/60-15 on stock rims. For the 16" 205/55-16 is the best option.

Personally, I don't think 2mm decrease will pose any problem. But, horror stories about the car breaching everywhere had me confused. But, sticking to 205/55s. Going to the tire dealer now. Lets see what price he quotes.

You can go to Tire Size Calculator - tire & wheel plus sizing

Gives a very good idea about the sppedo errors, sidewall heights etc.

Update: The dealer is trying to get the Yokohama ES 100/ S Drive in 205/55R16. If he can't get the yokos, I'm going for the Michelin Pilot Primacy.

But, I'm having a tough time deciding on the alloys. Here are some designs from League. What do you guys think? Color of the car is Bluish Silver. (Mods: Sorry, couldn't resize the pics)

Most of these are multi PCD designs with Offset ranging between 18 and 40. Now, I don't want the whole thing sticking out. What to do?










Adding a couple of Hijoin designs. Againg, multi PCD and different offsets.

Any tentative quotes for the said tyres ?

My vote goes to 065B, if you want a 'sophi' look.
Or the 232, if you want a 'hat-ke' look.

Are you sure about the multi-pcd bit. the civic is a 5 bolt pattern whereas some designs are only 4.

WRT tyres, its Minku's usual answer. Arrey chinta mat kijiye. Accha rate lagayenge


Sophi bole toh?
hat-ke bole toh bling bling kya?

@ Vidyut - Yes. Checked on the site. They have 4, 5 and 8(!) hole variants.

Minku needs some competition

My vote goes to the Hijoin H-112. But am curious... how will you source them? Minku flatly refused to get me Hijoins when I was shopping around.

Regd tyres, I guess you've already made up your mind. Just a note from personal experience - Minku will not get the Yokos quickly and he will charge you a helluva lot for them. My advice would be to opt for Michelins. They are available officially in Cal and won't really be that much more expensive than the Yokos.

In which shop did you manage to get this deal on your rims and tyres ?

And how many kms had your tyres run when you sold/exchanged them ?
