Work for a Honda dealership, saw this hatch come through the service drive about 3 weeks ago and had to have it. Purchased wheels, used stock tires, and managed to get lucky with a set of coilovers that fit. I give you the first 2017 Civic Hatchback with proper fitment?

When I first read the word "stanced" I was preparing to see a horrible setup. I tend to associate the term with dumb overly cambered wheels and stretched tires.


Your car looks great, nice work and I really like the wheels. I'd say your car has proper stance. Well done.

Thank you! Yeah...my definition of stanced is very different from what people imagine. I've done this to nearly every daily driver I've owned, I wish they came like this to begin with! Thanks

Looks awesome! This is my first time seeing the hatch lowered! I really hope I can snag up this color when it comes available at a dealer near me.

What brand coilover did you go with? BC Racing? D2 Racing? And is the hatch suspension the same as the rest of the Civic lineup?

Looks so good!

Thank god, finally someone with proper taste in stance ! This is what I like to see, straight wheel fitment, meaty rubbers, a good amount of low still maintaining clearance so you can actually drive it. This looks very proper my friend.

What coilovers did you use? I think you're the fist one here with a stanced hatchback so everyone's interested to know!

The sedan and hatchback share the same design on the struts and shocks, only difference is their valving. I used 2016 civic sedan BC coilovers, they fit great and the ride quality is comparable to stock on their softest setting. I did have to set the rear coilovers to the lowest setting in order to get the rear to sit the same as the front. The wheels I went with were a guess as far as how they would fit. Went with 17x9.25 with +36 OS and kept the factory tires, even with how low it is I have absolutely no rubbing issues and did not have to roll the fenders.

Also, I do not plan on doing anything else to this vehicle. It's my daily driver and I have a car that is for racing and causing trouble:). One thing I was disappointed with when I purchased the BC coilovers was that they do not come with camber plates for the front. First set I've ever bought without them, the front camber is adjustable from the factory on their cars though. You have about 1 degree of camber adjustment using the factory adjustment. The rear is strictly toe and go though. I ended up with -1 degree of camber on the front and -2.3 degrees on the rear but the toe is dead center. As long as you rotate the tires every 5k miles that should be manageable

they will change your oil...but, they may note that the car has been modified for any future issues you may have and use that as a tool to deny future warranty. i said 'may'....

but, they will still change your oil

thanks for the reply! so i guess im just going to give up the free oil changes i haggled for. i would rather keep the warranty as long as possible. if parts break because of my parts ill fix them myself anyways. im not planning of slamming the car only about 1in drop with better tires. and ktunerflashv2

I'm sorry for hi-jacking a thread - 1st mistake, but
I'm more interested in the improper stance - 2nd mistake.
I'm trying to insanely stretch some tires on the new XXR 561 18x10 20 offset. - 3rd mistake.
I was considering 225 40 18. - 4th mistake.

When I first saw stance, I was expecting the horrific stretch and extremely low variety.
In my opinion, @Joshstr1, your car is perfect.
I love the look in every way.
I just want mine to look mexiflush and extremely low.
