    20"

    Realistically, 17 or 18" are big enough.

    Go with a 16" wheel like Volk Racing, Advan or something Japanese..
    Then just make your Civic all JDM and you'll have one very clean Civic

    Depending if you want it for looks or performance. For looks go 17s, definitely looks sharp. But if you want to go autox or drag, I think you should get some light weight 15 or maybe 16s. I have Advan TC 17s on my car, and I have to admit they look nice, but the handling is a little sluggish, I really wish I would have kept my 15s for autox.

    why not?
    I think 17's look best on a Civic. Either that or 16's. 18's just look way too big on a Civic.

    i agree with buh buh, 16s, are a tad small, but 17s look perfect while 18s are just too big. but for autoX and stuff just keep your old set of steelies or something =)

    If you plan on doing autocross or lapping days or whatever, get the smallest and lightest rims you can get to fit over the brakes. If its just for looks, 16s or 17s.
    Drag racing is for fast cars. Solo 2 is for fast drivers.

    go with a light weight 16... not overdoing it, but still is an amazing difference from the stock 14" steelies... don't forget to lower your car at the same time, it just completes the package...
