Sell the rims and tires as a package to retreive as much money from them, then buy yourself a nice set of 15s with some decent tires and you won't have any rubbing issues and it will look hot too. I know it sounds common to say 'go 15s' but guess what, it's the biggest you can really go to is the least likely to rub on your car in any driving situation. 16s would work aswell, but only on a thinner tire, not a nice beefy one like the 15s could get.

I run Sir rims with 205/50/15s. Awesome aggresive look with enough sidewall to prevent curb rash and I've never had a wheel rub issue.

Well if they rubbed on a Civic, wouldn't you think they would rub on the Crx. :?:

Best and most logical thing to do.

IMHO, 17s on a crx create more of a "dune buggy" effect and take away from the suttle low look they are supposed to have. 17s also rub on my civic so I would be willing to bet they will on your crx, especially when hitting bumps. I would recomend selling and gettin a nice set of 15's, but the choice is yours and yours alone!

bunch of haters :lol:

its the same as anything really, if its not done properly you will have problems. If you dont get the proper tire you will have rubbing issues. as long as you get the right tire the overall diameter isnt going to change.

I disagree that 15 is the biggest you can go and not rub, I have no rubbing problem with my 17s...but I have the right tire too. There is plenty of sidewall for me, I dont have any problem avoiding curb rash with them.

Once again its personal preference. I like my 17s :D

I just went back and looked at the tires to be sure of the correct size. They are 215/45/R17 87H. The only reason why I asked if they would rub on my car, is because i'm not familier with civics and crxs and everything. I don't know if they had a different wheel base, or whatever you call it. sorry... But I want to keep the rims they are white and i think they would look good on my car here is a pic of them . They are a little dirty to . If you know anyone intrested on the tires, let me know. They are basicly brand new Kuhmo Ecsta or whatever so let me know......

Civics and Crx's are generally very similar, they share lots of the same parts. Wheelbase has nothing to do with it.
Those rims, i still beleive will rub.
I tried out some 17's( 205/40/17) a few yrs back on my '93 Civic hatch, which was lowered 1.8". They rubbed over bumps and when making turns and promptly removed them and put my 15's back on.
