    it kinda depends. if you have 13 inch rims, you'll get a 185 75 13. if you have the 14's on, its a 185 60 14. personally i like to get wider tires than come stock, but with the same or like sidewall height.
    Keep it HONDA. Or at least Asian.

    Thanks for that.
    I ended up buying the car, extremely happy with it.
    Mine has 185/70R13 on it. The bastards are basically bald so im going to get a set of retreads to keep me going before i get a nice set of rims.

    check the inside door frame , there should be a sticker there telling you what size/type of tire that car should have, if you wanna be stock that is

    My recommended tire size for my hatch is 195/60 R14. I guess it all depends on whether you have a hatch, coupe or sedan.
