Default would 17x9 inch rims fit my 06 civic ex coupe?

i just bought the car and was wondering if these rims would fit size wise, i know the bolt pattern matches, i just dont know if i need to make other adjustments so i dont scrape, the civic is all stock and also i would like to start buying things for my car such as a lip, shift knob etc.any legit sites or brands are appreciated, i know ebay has a lot of crap so i want to stay as far away from them as possible thank you all

It should fit as long as the bolt pattern is 5x113.4, if it scrapes buy spacers (1 - 5mm only DO NOT GO ANY HIGHER). Any higher will cause it to be unsafe to ride on because it makes your studs extremely short. When you put on the wheel just spin it while its still jacked up, if it spins freely then you are fine. As of parts for cars I would recommend checking out or honda-tech forums for places to purchase parts. Hightperformancefreaks,com is a reliable site with good brand name stuff.

Since you have a EX model its a R18a1, parts I would recommend is Injen, AEM, skunk2, Buddy Club. And you are quite wrong about ebay if you need suspension they actually sell real name brand suspension such as Buddy clubs, Tein, skunk2 etc. But look on forums for sites to buy these parts. Just careful with ebay they do hold a lot of knock off garbage on there.


-And for the question for Lips I would recommend HFP kits only other lip kits look ugly... just google HFP Lip kit on google should go for around 700ish+ just depends where you get it, shift knobs... I would say any is fine even knock off ones because they dont do much unless you plan on racing but with an R18A1 its kinda pointless to race with because they have a slow Vtec so on.

I think a 9inch wide rim would rub unless you got fender rolling done.

I had 8 inch wide rims on my 08 civic Si coupe, they didnt scrape, but there wasnt really any breathing room either.
