It depends. If you have 20 inch rims with like an inch of tire only, make sure you have a spare because you'll need it a lot. And yes heavy rims will affect your suspension, and gas mileage.

depends on the type of tire and how you use it mostly, your choice in rims will not flatten your tire, only obstacles in your way of your TIRE, Not your rim, will pop your tire. And the size of your tire and rim will affect your suspension and your braking the larger tire you go the harder it is to stop that momentum and the lower your profile of your tire will result in harsher ride quality which in turn leads to suspension failure. hope this helps

It's the weight of your tire&wheel combo that affects suspension, braking, acceleration, wear&tear on bushings. The over-all size should be ~the same as factory if you get the right sized tire to match your wheel. The offset of the wheels also put a huge impact on suspension and wear/tear.That being said 20" wheels on a civic will never match the over-all diameter of the factory wheel/tires and present many problems to you no matter how light the wheel&tire combo is.

The bigger diameter of rims you get that usually means the smaller thickness of tire you can have for the whole assembly to fit in your tire well. Meaning less tire between the road and your wheel makeing it easier for your tire to rip/tear when hitting potholes, etc. And your suspension really won't be that affected except that lower profile tires have less give so it will feel like the ride is harder.
