    it all depends on the profile of the tire...my boy had 17's with a pretty low profile and he cleared the fender lining.he then put on 18's with the same tire profile and rubbed really bad...you can def. feel the power differance between bigger wheels and stock...

    15's are ideal but 16's are fine

    15's with 'normal' tires

    16s with low pro's

    for 96+

    smaller rims for earlier cars

    heres another thing to consider.. tires for the 16's are going to be more expensive.. not by too much though..

    15's FTW!

    I tried my 15X7 with 205/50/15 and the rub on the back fender when you take bumps. It might be that the rims are 35 off-set, but don't know the car will take a 40 in there. I just tried this size because I already had this tires and rims for another car. I wouldn't think anything bigger than 195 will fit on a lowered CRX with the stock fenders.
    just my personal experience...
