Well as some of you know I recently lowered my car. My problem is my tires are big 60 profiles and they bounce to much even with me driving at the most stiff setting. Will getting tires with a 45-50 profile remedy this. My downpipe is getting beat to **** and I rather not have it leak. What are some other tricks to help me out? Will moving up to a lightweight 16 or 17in wheel keep me from bottoming out?

While I'm at it, can you use a 6in wide wheel on a Prelude? A 240 guy is selling some super sweet JDM rims for cheap!

Stocks Are 6.5 wide do I don't know why not.
The 60's are to tall and can cause it to be hitting the top/fender.
With the downpipe is it is hitting you can get a shield from passwordJDM

This might help, What is the offset of the JDMs

omg stop bumping this!!

people haven't been responding cuz either:
1) no one has any pertinent information about this subject.
2) if they do happen to know, they're not on right now.
3) or they're getting annoyed about you bumping your thread so often that they refuse to reply.


with that being said, have you even checked the links that Dwend graciously went out of his way to find to help you???

dude..increasing your tire size to 17's will raise your car a little so will stop your car from bottoming out..but you should really check your shocks..they may be a little too soft for the roads your driving on..the reason for your car bouncing around is to do with your shocks and springs, your tyre sizes will not stop your car from bouncing..infact..going to a bigger size with lower profile will almost definatly increase the bouncing on ur car.

Of course I have read the recomended tire size thread, I just wanted to see if getting a lower profile tire will help me out. My shocks are brand new and are very stiff, I feel it's just that the tires are too thick and get a little squishy.

Anyway, these are cool:

First off ^ gag!

Secondly, seriously, think about out. You obviously know enough to know what the profile ratio means. Why would getting a tire that is SHORTER, thus making your car LOWER TO THE GROUND keep you from BOTTOMING ON THE GROUND? Come on!

If you increase your rim size and get a lower profile tire you will have less squish in your tire but probably more "bouncy" It sounds like you have a header that is manufactured with practicality out of mind or your car is REAL low. I have a 5th gen with a 1.5" Eibach kit and 215/45/17s and never bottom out. With wheel cranked hitting a dip will make the tire rub the inner fender but you gotta give a little to get little.
