    14x4.5 is factory size. 14x6 should work but the stock tired will be stretched to fit. My hybrid civic wheels are 14x5.5 and 175-65r14s fit well


    2014 ES F5MBD aka 5MT. I am a full time Uber driver, if you want to drive for uber DO not sign up without my referral code for a bonus .

    Over here they are 14x4. The multispoke alloys are 14x4.5, the LS wheels are 15x5.
    The donut spare is 12x3 or something.

    Join the club brother.

    Right now, it's either coilovers or stock. I wish I had time to pull one out and compare it to other vehicles.

    Great...oh well I'll just look into coilovers and a rear strut bar. I'm just trying to reduce body roll.

    Coilovers:
    GAB SS
    Sivers
    Tein

    GAB SS probably the best value for money.
    Rear sway and rear strut on stock springs doesn't do much at all. I only noticed when I put in H&R lowering springs.

    If you're looking to reduce body roll a sway bar will do a lot more than a strut bar.

    The sway bar eliminated almost all of my mirage body roll 70% I would say. The h&r springs would have removed maybe 50% without the sway bar, springs and bar 85-90% is removed but the ride isn't like a pillow with the stock dampers. Try the rear sway bar first.

    Yeah I'll try the sway bar first. I'll get the coilovers down the road. Do the models from 2012-2014 use the same parts? I'm having a difficult time finding the parts for the 2015.

    Yes, a 2012-2014 sway bar will fit right up.
