On my older 2014 Civic Si, I also ran Continental DWS 06 tires. They weren't too bad for the price. What size did you buy? I looked at them on Tire rack but only at 255/35/R19's. I am still on my OEM All season tires on my Sport 2.0T. I'm now at 32,337 miles. Those all gloss black wheels do look nice. See, for me, I do LOVE the look of the OEM Sport wheels. That's just personal preference though 馃榿I can't wait to upgrade my tires when I need a new set though!

Thank you 馃檹馃徑

This time I went with 245/35/20. My car has a little over 3,700 miles on it so far. I am going to sell the original rims and tires since I don鈥檛 plan on using the OEM stuff. They aren鈥檛 bad I guess my issue is that I like to be different and there are so many Accords out there on the road. I supposed to get a quote tomorrow for wrapping my entire car in forged carbon so we shall see what happens!
Oh, you're absolutely welcome!! :p I totally agree with you! For me and my Sporty, I LOVE to modify things, and upgrade parts when the OEM parts fail! 馃弾 Yeah, I mean for my Sport, one of the main things in the future that I'll love to upgrade is the front upper part of the grille from chrome to blacked-out chrome. Mine is getting soo pitted up with rock chips, etc. In the future, I'll want to have that upgraded to the blacked out chrome upper grille! I'm also going to be upgrading the OEM brake pads to carbon ceramic pads for less brake dust on the wheels, and Stainless steel brake hoses for better stopping feel and a more responsive pedal feel as well!

I learned from my 2018 that the front of the car will need to be protected from rock chips so on my 2020, I covered the grille and wrapped the front of the car.

Haha, yeah, tell me about! I drive on the turnpike quite often for work, and trust me those rock trips are my front lip are not helping! Lol, that's why I can't wait to get them blacked out front chrome upper part of the grill when it looks bad enough. It's already pitted up from rocks and stone chips from the highways. Your cover on your front grill looks awesome though. I was also going to throw a cold air intake onto my engine, but there's this person on Instagram who posted YouTube video of his 2018 sport 2.0T with a cold air intake versus a stock intake and it doesn't make any more performance just sounds good. I was actually quite shocked at the intake air temperature on the OEM intake is better for performance than the aftermarket one! what I have all over my car, is Hydrosilex ceramic coating/hydrophobic coating. :p

Wow, beautiful looking wheels and tires. Those tires and width and low profile look good. I was thinking 255s for mine though. How's the ride on 35 sidewall series tires though? That's honestly the look and the performance feel that I want for mine.

I feel like the ride is a little less smoother that my stock wheels but I may have to drive it a little more to get you an honest answer. I drove the car maybe 5 miles after the install. I will update you after the weekend because I do have to do more driving but I won鈥檛 be leaving the house again until Saturday lol 馃槀
Yeah, I hear ya! I mean the wheels/tires combo looks great! When my Sporty needs tires in the future, those are the types of tires I'll be putting on my car as well! Just staying with the OEM size though..lol
