Why don't you consider Michelin Energy XM1+ or even PP2? They should be available in 185/65/R14. Both should cost around 4000 per piece.

Why would you want to have low profile tyres, especially if you are having problems with the ride quality?

Please dont go for 15", Tyres with 185/60 R14- Michelin PP2 or Michelin Energy XM1 or Appolo Accelere Sportz. I have tested all the three on my cars of which best would be Michelin PP2 for comfort, Appolo Accelere Sportz for grip & life, Michelin Energy XM1 for bit of all the three (comfort, grip & life)

In that case go for PP2, you will definately get 30-35K on this.
But it wont look good on the Vtec OE as the PP2 is broader then the other 185/60R14 tyres in comparison. Go for the one you posted on the civic.

If you are going for going for XM1+ you can go for 195/60/R14 as it is not as much broad as PP2.

ok just found out mxv8 is not for 14. i still want 15 incher with that sexy lip but it is not justifying 10000 difference at all not to add i lose ride quality too. so as of now xm1+ or c drive. i am more hell bent on the c drive have to decide soon. i am also finding OE honda rims of zx vtec as i am thinking weather to install aftermarket rims or not since i do not want wobbling after 100kmh. issues issues in life i say !!!

I don't think 185/65 C-Drive is officially available. Why don't you go for A-Drive or XM1+?

Why not try for these alloys:
