Hi guys,

I just wanted to know your thoughts with tyres on a DOHC ZC with 185/65/14s?

I know that factory CRXs came out with 185/60/14 it's just that I like the tallness for more comfort and hopefully not throw out my rpms and fuel mileage?

Thanks guys Your expertise is much appreciated here down under

Note I'm also on coil overs and low hence my thoughts on putting comfy tyres

Your speedo will be accurate for once.

MPG will be the same, but the devices recording will be showing TRUE numbers and not inflated numbers, so while it will change, it will be correct for once.

ive just been offered 17/65/14 at a set of four all same brands or 185/65/14 with two tpye of brands.

would the 175/65/14 be way off for my crx?

there are tire size calculators available online, find one.

I suggest the 185/65/14s

much more common size if tire hazard warranty is required for any reason, and much easier to match a pair of snow tires or something in the future

If you are looking to split the line between comfort and performance, I think you are probably going about it the wrong way. Crappy tires and hard springs = crappy performance. Decent tires and softer springs = decent performance.
