It probably won't rub but I still don't think you should do it.

-it'll still have a 4x4 wheel gap
-I think most people would agree that 17's don't look good on EG's, especially if it's not lowered
-the car doesn't have much torque to begin with, slap on oversized (dia.) tires and it'll be even worse

I think the best compromise would be to drop it on sport springs and 15/16x7, +30-40, 195/50/15 or 205/45/16. It's a proven combination, handles better, loses a lot of the wheel gap and she won't have rubbing issues (both in the wheelwells and undercarriage, except in extreme cases).

Nice, clean sedan btw.

Here's mine on 15's and race springs. 99% of the time, the only things that rub are the front mudflaps

Thanks and nice civic I like the blue !

So main reason is budget and my gf really likes the look of the white on white and she already has the rims although there mounted on 225/45/17 lol which were rubbing like shit so i ripped them off asap
but heres a pic of the rims mind you im gunna refinish them myself this weekend
