Unless you have a motor swap and pushing over 300 HP then the slicks are not needed. The 91 SI only has about 120 HP at the crank and about 105 at the wheels. It will struggle to break traction with a good set of tires like a Nitto Neo-Gen or Toyo Proxes. The rims you would need are either 14x10 or 15x10 and with a nice pair of race slicks are going to put you back a little over $1000.

Wow, the Civic Si 90-91 made some what I believe 106HP. But anyway, if you lanch hard at 4500-5500RPM you break the front tires lose until 2nd. Look into HX wheels they are wider then your wheels and weigh around 15lbs each. Cheaper then 2-draglite wheels
