Impossible.

Your stock size is 16" in diameter. Those tires are for 15" diameter rims.

Assuming you are using your stock rims for the winter tires.

OP, if you don't even know how tires work then you definitely should purchase from a retail store.. or else you're going to fuck up your purchase!

205/55/16 are stock sizing. you have to make sure you can clear 15" wheels.

that is the biggest question.

195/60/15 is slightly undersized, 195/65/15 would be a more correct sizing. this is assuming that u can clear 15" wheels. what kinda civic? i believe the base civic's are 15s. so if u know for sure that the base civic and your civic have the exact same brake sizing, then it should clear.

I guess I was the only one who ASSumed the OP would be getting different rims.

Anyways, my GF has an '07 LX with stock 16's and I just mounted a set of 15" steelies with snow tires for her. They were OEM Accord steelies, year unknown. I bought them off CL and measured the offset and CB before I bought them. Then test fit/double check the brakes would clear (didn't need to, just wanted to double check in case the calipers might stick out more on her car or w/e)

SG's right. The lower models and sedans use 15" wheels.

Make sure the offset is 40-48ish? mm and the CB is 64.1 or bigger and you should be fine.

Nissan and Mazda rims will work too, Toyota CB is too small. According to the wheel specs, Caravan wheels will work too but I've never tried them.
(Obviously assuming the donor car has a BP of 5x114.3)

yes,, you will get major rubbage..you might have to roll your fenders and cut your fender liners. thats some crazy aggresive tire setup. you should strip your interior too..try to make the car as light as possible to take some pressure away from the suspension.

wow...seriously

I didn't think you'd have to be a tire guru to figure this out.

The 195/60-15's are smaller than the 205/55-16's.

If the wheels are 'steelies' center bore shouldnt be an issue.

yeah, but there are in fact steelies made for your car too. you can find steelies made with a hub centric /center bore size that is made for say toyotas and some made for hondas. steelies dont always have to be generic.
