Preferably on the new 2013 civic sedan.

I was thinking of lowering my car but I live in Toronto where we get a stupid amount of snow so I don't think its a good idea. However my dealership said they can order and install Enkei wheels on my car. I'm just wondering now if "race" type wheels would look half decent without lowered suspension.

Honestly, aftermarket wheels look funny with stock suspension. I out 18s on before i got lowering springs and the wheel gap looked pretty bad lol ImageUploadedByAG Free1381710587.732110.jpg

Honestly man that doesnt look half bad. I live in Canada so if you have a lowered car you look like a ******* idiot. We get 7 months of snow and your car would look like a beast if you ever drove through my neighbourhood. Thanks for showing me this is exactly what I wanted to see, I appreciate it! Do you mind showing me what it looks like lowered? I wouldnt mind seeing a comparison.

Oooooh, you live in canada lol, yeah so that ground clearance you will need. The wheel gap doesnt look bad in that picture, prob bc iphone cameras suck haha but ill show you a close up of before and after and a recent picture with eibach pro springs installed

That should give you an idea, but lowering your car in brutal winters will suck haha

Looks good. By going 18's you would of filled some of that gap, what size tires?
Not necessarily. 18s often use tires with smaller sidewalls to keep the overall diameter the same. But yes, you can use the same size sidewall on an 18 as a 17. But then the whole car will sit higher with any given suspension height setting.
