    will this be a good tire for the Civic VX? I already found a person selling a VX Rims but I don't have any ideas about tires.

    Can anyone tell me if this is ok?

    I would double check the rims physically in person for width and weight. There's a company selling "new" rims that look identical to the vx wheels but much heavier. They should be 5" wide from the inner lips of the rim, i dont think they came in any other width. It would be something like 5-1/2 overall width.

    Here is a comparason of your tire your selecting size wiise and in my opinion it looks like it will fit

    You should go for it and sell me your VX rims to run on my 92 VX. I sold my other VX (95) about a month ago, with my nicest set of oem rims on it.

    I'm not sure, i stumbled on the knockoff VX info when i was gathering info for a different style honda rim. Cani Lupis would know more, I'm sure. But for grins i suppose it's worth mentioning my HX rims say enkei on the reverse side.

    Actually,... No.. I can't find what I'm talking about! lol i looked pretty good, too, but I'm at work so i can't really keep looking.

    The 165/65-r14 is a factory mirage size tire as well.

    Good luck and post up a picture when they're mounted up!
