    Got this Ef, would like to be able to stick some 17's on it, and I just don't know if it's gonna go. I had 205/40/17's on my 94 integra which was lowered about 1.5 inches. It did'nt really rub, but it was close.
    I wanna drop the civic only about an inch with a Pro-kit. None of this My friend shit either... I'm not rolling the fender's and would like to keep the fenderwell.

    Might go with 15's or 16's otherwise.
    thanks

    I had a set of 17X7 with 204/40-17 on them with the Tokico illumina kit which is 1.5" on my 89 Civic Lx 4-door with no problems. I plan on running them on my 88 CRX Si with WW RS kit which is lowered 1.5" on Neuspeed Softsport with Illuminas.

    I say do it. I had a friend that was lowered 2.5" with 17's and rubbed a little bit because he had 17X7.5. Just watch your offset and you should be just fine.

    Ive got 16's on my EF hatch. Rota Slipstreams wrapped with Yokohama Parada Spec-2's 205/45/16 with a 3 inch drop. They tuck in the front with a 1degree negative camber for road racing. They dont scrape at all no problems at all. I am very pleased with that size Rim and Tire.

    my good buddies CRX came with a crappy set of 17s on it when he bought it, and everytime he made a u-turn or sharp turn the wheels would rub on the inside of the fender wells. I say 15s, lightweight, you will be happy... 15s no more.
