17" is just one number. How wide is the rim? What is the offset and/or backspacing of the rim? What size tires? how wide and how tall?

I'd say they dont fit and are rubbing but that doesn't mean 17 inch rims won't fit a 96 Civic, it just means all those other numbers/measurements aren't right to fit your Civic properly.
