seriously, get rid of the 17's... try to gop 16's on 45 or 50 or 15's on 50 or 55... (depending how low you lowered your car)

17 is too huge for any sort of civic/crx... and when tires are that low (40 or below), you're asking for trouble when it comes to potholes or crappy cracking roads around gta, or going onto ugly ramps or bumps... chances of dent rims or crack, etc can happen... and low pro tires doesn't feel that comfy IMO

jsut a 2cents, if you can, try selling off your 17's

good luck...

yes, not if its the 7+th gen...

but since his profile states he's driving a rex... the big rims won't go too well with it... i love the rex in 15's..... with some 50s...

205/40/16 for 16's
205/40/17 is the lowest it gets for 17 and 215/35/18 for 18's.

195/45/15 is smallest 15's and thats an odd size with not alot of options
