I suspect that your front disk brakes are to large for 13" VX rims, so 14" HX rims or even better honda insight rims would be the answer, with of course narrow tires, the tire width being the first number, the narrowest you can easly get for 14" rims being 165mm wide.
My 96 DX sedan has the stock 13" steel rims.
Mine does have power steering. Maybe that's a hatch/sedan difference?
I used to get 33mpg, but my 6-month average is 44 and my last tank was 52.1mpg. It's a good car. I love the shifter!
Welcome to GS! If you have a 1996, then you are scangauge compatible, which will give you a digital tach. My 1989 Honda CRX had the smoothest shifter, manual windows, *and* no power steering. Fantastic!
