195/55 or 205/50 should be good ! Dont stray too far from stock tires specs.

That could be false information.

We need to know what kind of car this is going on first. The car dictates the tire size more so than the wheels.

The suspension modifications aren't really all that important.

What model '92 Civic? EX, Si, HX, etc...? Did you honestly import an EG chassis, or is it an EH2 (USDM hatchback)?

Assuming you've got a '92 Civic DX hatchback, the following tire sizes would work:
185/50/15
195/50/15
205/50/15

Those won't fit a 15x6.5" wheel safely, bud. The narrowest wheel you can mount that tire to is a 7" wheel.
