It will throw you speedometer off quite a bit. It will also look kinda dumb with that much tire on a litte Civic.

Yes it is okay, upgrading to 16" rims and tires will be perfectly fine just have the wheels balanced and an alignment done. The actual recommended tire size is 205-40-16 for your model, I would recommend staying with that so that you know 100% the tires are correct plus it will save you the hassle and money if the 205-55-16 rub against any panels or cause any other problems. I don't think they will though unless your car is lowered then you may have problems by using a tire with a larger sidewall.

All in all, I say just get the 205-40-16. It'll still look good.

No, it will rub and throw your speedometer off by a little. If your going to use 16's go with 205/40/16 if your going to use 15's go with 195-50-15.

Yes it will be okay. Just try to look for the proper offset of your rims. But i suggest you try 205/45/16 or 205/50/16. It will also add looks and better handling of your car. Hope this helps!
