Default What size tires does a 2003 Honda Civic Lx Sedan need if I put 17" rims on the car?

Factory Tires = 185/70/R14I plan to replace the factory rims and tires on my car with new 17" Chrome Rims, But I am not sure exactly what tire size I need to put on the new rims....Does anyone know?

Go to the place and ask the store associate so they can help you. The size may change upon the car.

Go to and use their calculator to find the best tire and rim for your Civic.

There's a few choices- it's just really up to you. 185 is on your car, but you could go up to about a 225. As far as the heighth- it depends on what you want the quality of your ride to be. If you get 40 series (aka- "lo-pros", "rubber bands")-basically the thinnest ones, your ride will be a little rougher than if you got 45 series tires. A 50 series might fit with 17" tires, but the tires will be close to the fenders.
