2000 sir rims on 97 civic lx

Looking for some insight.
About six months ago I replaced the original 185\65\14 tires and rims that came with my 97 civic lx with 2000 sir 195\55\15 tires and rims. I now have some cupping going on and the tires feel like crap. A friend of mine told me that since I went from the original size 14 inch tire to a 15 inch I will have to install a camber kit or I will always have the same problem. Does anyone know if this is true or should I be looking at something else.

this is entirely untrue. the civic had optional wheels in the 15 inch size, it will behave as OEM equipment should - there should be no issues whatsoever.

is the cupping happening just on one corner? or all 4 wheels? is your tire pressure correct? what's the mileage on the car? is it modified in any way besides the rims? what kind of tires?

Maybe you need an alignment. Putting SIR's on stock ride height will not cause this.
Is your car lowered?
