i guess its because its primarily shuvd's dad's ride.hence the preference to a plush ride quality.

Actually I wanted 16s. 17s are an overkill for Calcutta. I don't want to end up with busted sidewalls. Now, the problem is there are very few alloy options in 16"s. The ones that are available, are fugly! Hence I think I'll stick to 15s. Will probably get BFG G-Force Sports in 205/60/15.

Navpreet, my dad is also a full on petrol head. He says the suspension could have been slightly stiffer!!

Awesome choice! Deep dish black wheels with a chrome outline are amongst the best designs ever made. Congratulations. Your Civic is looking really neat.

@ Navpreet - The D2s cost close to 50k my friend!! And, I would rather upgrade my car's suspension first. Lenso GTR 16" has 4 holes.
