Best All-Season Tires for the Honda Civic

If you're the owner of a newer Honda Civc, then you probably already know that the Original Equipment tires are tuned for a quiet and soft ride. However, they're not among the best choices for all-season traction in wet and snowy conditions. While it is great to have the best tires, many drivers prefer to have affordable tires that represent a good value for their hard-earned dollars.  

Most recent generations of the Honda Civic typically use one of three common tire sizes: 195/65R15, 205/55R16 and 215/45R17. Many Civics use 195/65R15, but there are quite a few higher trim levels that use 205/55R16, so be sure to check your actual tire size that is on your car. If you aren't sure where to find your tire size, check out "Sidewall Markings."

Each of these tires have been carefully selected due to their combination of all-season traction, ride quality, treadlife and value. All four tires are also rated and reviewed quite favorably in our survey results.

Even if you have a Honda Civic with one of the smaller 15" or 16" wheels, you can purchase larger wheels and tires. To learn more about installing larger tires and wheels on your Honda Civic, read "Plus Sizing 101."
