    I'm currently de-ricing a 00 EX I received in a trade and I just got some 15 inch steelies from an 01 Civic.
    I was wondering if someone could tell me the proper tire size for such wheels.

    Thanks.

    195/55/15 is standard size for that wheels. You could also go 205/50/15, and 195/50/15

    195/55/15, they're a taller tire so you'll coast longer. Just like riding a bike.

    Yeah for saving gas you wouldn't want to go with a 205/50-15 sized tire.

    I have 205/55/15. Rare tire size, but I like them.
