It would fit like the other guy said, but would look VERY stupid.

Don't do it, Unless you want to lift your car up and make it looks really dumb, its not gonna fit. Even leaving it stock height with 20's (if you can even drive that way) would look dumb. I would probably go with 18's at the most. Anything bigger just looks awkward. It's a Civic not a big luxury car or SUV

It wouldnt look dumb. If you like it get it. You only live once, I see big rims on Honda Civics all the time here in South Carolina.I got 22s on my 1997 Pontiac Grand Prix with minor modifications even though all the rims shops in my area said they would never fit. Anything can be done.Mods: Bending the strut plate with a Hammer for clearance then spray painting the strut plate back the original color. I also had to buy XL wheel studs and some wheel spacers. Everything sits flushs and ive had no problems. You will also need spring locks to lift the car a lil so it doesnt rub.(advance auto parts $10)

Who cares how it looks. 20 inch wheels will ruin the handling of your car. That's the bottom line. Honda sells rims for the new civics up to 19" so I certainly would not go larger than that. I have Rays 18" g-games wheels on my car with 225/40r18's. Your car will look and handle a lot better with a nice set of 18's and a set of Eibach springs and handle better as well. That would be my recommendation.
