We installed a set of 15" winter tires and Thinkware FA200 2-Channel dash cam on this 2012 Honda Civic. The Toyo Observe GSI-5 winter tires were very affordable at just $500 installed while the Thinkware FA200 remains our favourite entry-level dash cam. It is worth noting that due to the windshield wiper design, the dash cam should be mounted lower to have a view out of where the wipers actually clear. Mounting the camera higher will be more discreet and more attractive for wire management but does run the risk of not being able to see very well in the rain or snow.
For under $1000 taxes in, there's a lot of value that goes into making this daily driver safer and giving the driver added confidence year round. We do recommend picking up an extra set of wheels to save on installation costs if you're able to swap wheels yourself. An extra set of steel wheels for a car like this would start around $250 while alloys would start closer to $450 for a set.
