I am considering the Yokohama S Drive 225/50R 16 tires (all the way around) and either the MB Five X wheels (Finish: Silver Machined - silver powder coat with a glossy finish) or the MB Seven X (Finish: Gloss Black Machined - black with high glass shine).

Got a couple new pictures - updates made to the 9th Gen Civic: Removed the Civic badging and dealership sticker from trunk of car.

Before removal

After removal

Saturday evening I watched a couple of videos to use the best method in removing the badging and dealership sticker from any car. I kept the car in the sun for a couple hours, since I didn't have a hair dryer to heat the sticker anymore than what the sun has. I improvised and boiled some water, poured the first pot onto the Civic badge and used "dental floss" to remove the badge which took about 60 seconds to come off. I used a fine - non abrasive scrub pad and whatever adhesive remaining on the car was gone in about a minute.
The dealership sticker took about 40 minutes to be removed. To remove the dealership sticker, I used go goo, wd40 and hot water.

My next modification was to the tires and wheels on my 2012 Honda Civic LX Sedan
Stock wheels and tires are P195 / 65 R 15 - I changed both to 205 / 50 R 16 Yokohama YK580's and went with the 16" MB Seven X as seen below. The ride is much better and lucky me found two people in my apartment complex to buy each 1 of the stock tires to use as a full size spare instead of the doughnut spare provided by Honda.

I actually like the Civic emblem, but totally agree with the dealership logo. #1 it doesnt look good, and #2 theyre not paying us for advertising.

No kidding jtsi2012, glad I got that off the car. I like the Civic logo as well. I still have it and I might see if I can paint it or something to red in color and put back on.
Another member painted it black and re-located to the blank space above the license plate. I'll try and locate the thread and advise. Anyone remember where its at? Its also TW.
