My 6 Months Old Pocket Rocket with Aftermarket Rims!

Here is some pictures of my Civ 5D. Got it 6 months ago (had to wait about 6 months).

Brought some rims from I dont know company (

Only problem is that new tyres I think are too wide (225/45 R17) and for that gas consumption is about one litre greater in highway. Before it was about 6,3 but now 7,3 L in 100 km. I think 205 or 215 mm are more suitable for civ.

But anyway Im still happy with my civ.

I'm no expert when it comes to tyres but they do look a little wide, the alloys look good though!

Look Very nice.

I've to check but the dimension you give for the tyres are the same for my car and it is equiped with the 17" wheels from honda (not an extra)

I know that on the confort spec the rim are 16" but I think the tyres have the same width.

I've to check tomorow on my car

The 225/45 17" have the closest rolling diameter to the 205/55 16" and therefore shouldn't be altered. Check your tyre pressures are correct, they can make a HUGE difference to fuel comsumption.
