    you have to take into consideration that most 18s are 18x7.5, and the overall tire diameter for 18s with 215/35-18s are a mere half-inch larger than a 205/40-17... he didn't say retain ALL performance, but it won't be as bad as the '90 prelude with 19s I see every other day around town...

    I wasn't speaking in regards to the weight aspect. I know that heavy wheels are bad, I was merely pointing out that in overall diameter the largest wheel/tire combination that is possible without messing up GEARING on a civic is 18s with 215/35/18 tires.
