    Will 17's higher my car?

    I got pulled over and need to get it signed off. If I get 17's will it bring it up an inch or 2? I'm on neuspeed race springs and i have civic si rims right now. let me know please.

    it might raise you about 1 cm or something. The total size of your wheel and tire will not change much because of the smaller aspect of the tire.

      i think it will raise you more than that wont it? Cause w/you 14's and big tires, it may be the same diameter, but when you put the 14's on, the tires squish a little. So it should be more than 1cm. and please say raise man..

            Maybe about a 1/4 inch ... visually it seems to raise the car more.

            So the cop gave you a ticket for being too low?

            It doesnt seem like a 2 inch drop would be illegal.

              how much do you need to go up? remember, to go up an inch, you need tires that are 2 inches taller, since half the extra height is on top of the wheel. Dunno how well the car will drive if you get much larger tires.

              you could always try wedging stuff between the coils of the springs to raise it temporarily.

                            Worst case scenario "sorry, cant sign it off" and you go to another until someone says who cares and signs it

                                he was driving normally on donuts? they are a lot smaller in diameter than the stock tires, so it would go up a bunch if that happened.

                                I bought my old car from a friend after he backed it into a tree - the impact had shoved the fuel fill hose forward so that it rubbed on the tire, so we jacked it up and stuck pieces of wood between the coils of the spring to keep the spring from compressing. The ride will be very hard, and I wouldn't recommend driving for long that way, but if they don't care about things like that it will work.
