    way to wide, will ride like crap, rub everywhere, look retarded to boot. you need to lower if you're adding big wheels. it will just look retarded 4x4 edition without it.

    there are no pros.

    17x7.5 is as wide as i would go...

    i think that 16s are the best size to go with as well, but if you like the look of big wheels then get 17s. pretty much any aftermarket wheel regardless of size is going to look funny without lowering the car at least a little.

    16's are the biggest you should go on a honda. wheels that are 18x9.5 are meant for some bigger rwd cars like nissans and shit.

    i can't even find pictures of a honda with 18's to show you how stupid it looks..

    but those wheels you are looking at aren't meant for a honda. they probably aren't even 4 lug. do you have a picture of them? i'm assuming you are asking because you found a set you considered buying.

    Yeah, but a mirage is the car a civic wants to be.

    And btw, his mirage doesn't look bad at all with the street wheels on.

    i didn't say it looks bad, it just rides high. which is understandable with the body kit and all.
