high performance tires, who cares? first of all if you even plan to get custom rims then hpt are a waste of money. and you know since its coming from honda directly they are going to over charge the **** out of it. and during the first couple thousand miles if you value your new civic you wouldn't what to rev the hell out of it intill your engine and drive train has been "broken in." and do you really plan on driving a civic in the summer only. this isn't an NSX were talking about.
