i went with a 2" upgrade from stock, had to get the tpms sensors re-calibrated by honda. IMO i like the wheels without a lip like the Tenzo-R and TSW, i also like some of the motegi's

I'm sticking with 17" wheels. I really like the Sparco Drift rims from Tirerack.

I think you should go up 1 inch. I find it pointless to stay with the same size weekends that originally came on the car. Especially since the Si wheels are made by Enkei and are nice. Now if you want more just for show go 2 inches

I think 18's are the perfect size for Civics.

Yeah, they look high without a drop. The Road Magnets are out and si few members here have them and love them. I'm going to drop my car first before I get rims, After all the Si wheels look good.
