I got a honda civic lx with hubcaps and was wondering if i should just buy 15 inch rims and use the same tires?? Anyone have any pics of how it would look??

not sure what pics you are looking for.... are you thinking about any rims in particular? As long as the rims you get are the same diameter and width as the stock wheels why not use the same tires.

I guess I dont understand why you would upgrade to new wheels and not increase the size. The stock steelies are miniature, I would go up to at least a 17".

Here you go




Personally, considering they're priced almost the same as the bigger wheels, I'd buy the bigger wheels, and live with the added expense of new tires. Discount Tire Direct (one of the site sponsors) has great deals. It would look better, AND not be TOO much more $.

They really don't look anything special, especially for 200+ a wheel. How about, buy the wheels you WANT, and then wait till you can buy the tires. That way, you get the best of both worlds (tires and a nice wheel). Otherwise, I'd stick with the wheel covers.

Agree just wait and do it right
