Question about 1994 Honda Civic

1 Answer


I own a honda civic with 16 inch wheels with 205/50/16 tyres and the wheel seems to be touching the body in the back. how do i raise the back so that the wheel will not touch.
thanks in advance for your help.

I was thinking of changing the back coil springs, or is there something I can use to raise the back.

Can I change my 1998 Nissan pathfinder from 15" to

You can change from 15" to 16" tyres no problem but to maintain the same body clearance you will have to go down in the tyre profile dimension. That is to say if you are running 15" 195r5 tyres then on the 16" you will have to run 175r16. Check the local road law but in most states the over all diameter of the tyre has to remain the same. So if the dia from tread to tread is 22" ?on a 15" wheel it must remain the same on the 16"? wheel

VW Passat Estate on Alloy wheels with 235/45/ZR17 tyres. want to find winter tyre suitable for 16 inch steel rim for same vehicle. Steel rim is marked 61x2JX16H2

okay, 235 is the tread width 45 is the profile(the distance from the wheel to the road)ZR is the speed rating(over 120mph)17 is the wheel to get the same tread width 225 would fit(cheaper than 235)45 needs to be thicker cos of 16" not 17" wheels and 1"=25.4mm 75 would be the choice.because winter tyres are designed for speeds less than 70mph "R" would be suitable.
all together 225/ 75(or 85) R 16.....SNOW TYRE/WINTER TREAD.

My 1994 civic dx has an ex gage cluster and the speedometer is off by 10-15 mph how would I correct this and keep the gage cluster it says my tire size should be 175 70r13 but I have 185 60r14 which is the...

okay,lets go to basics...1/.175 is the width of the tyre.2/.70 is the profile(that is 70mm from the wheel rim to the road).3/.13 is the width of the wheel rim.
So,you have 185(wider tread)60 (lower profile)14"(bigger wheels).you need to fit 35 profile tyres to get close to the same rolling radius to correct the speedo,the ride will be harder and the tyres are much more expensive,alternatively fit 13" wheels/tyres.
70/13 radius is the same circumferance as 45/14(25mm thinner).
simply put,if you measure the original wheel, road to top of tyre,then measure the ones fitted you are an inch to tall or 3.1/2" more around (approximately)please leave feedback...ta

Scrubbing noise from rear

check the sheet metal backing plate just behind the brake rotors, it may be bent and touching when wheel is turned, this is the common problem for this noise.

Front wheel lenght 2 inches more than rear wheel lenght.Normal?

It should not be a problem as long as he aligns the tires in a four wheel alinement it will be fine, on trucks some axles stick out more on one side than they do the other so don't worry about it, if he's any good he can still align them it's just more work for him.

17in alloys wheels makes strange sound

what design are they, two thing could be doing it, if the obviouse touching has already been investigated, one is the design, if the spokes/hub sits out further than the rim than the outer of the rim they could be catching the wind and making some freaky noises, or if the center dishes in then maybe they are "loud" tyres by that i mean do the tyres have wide grooves, directional etc, high performance tyres are in principle very noisy. hope this has been handy.

Tinny clicking noise

Hi! have you physically removed the wheel? if not then a good inspection off the vehicle may help. Check the circumference of the tyre for a tack/nail then look around the inside of the wheel for signs of chaffing or rubbing.
Maybe your Discs are showing too much corrosion around the edge and just touching the caliper, a scrape with a decent file would cure it.
