    Default What other tyre profile can be used on Lancer EX?

    Complied a list of possible tyre profile useable on CY2 & CY4 as follows:

    Stock tyre specs (based on specs taken from Mitsubishi website):
    205/60/16 (Lancer EX 1.5 Elegance & Sport & Lancer EX 2.0 Elegance)
    215/45/18 (Lancer EX 2.0 GT)

    Possible tyre profiles (with least error margin):
    225/55/16
    245/50/16 - too wide?

    205/55/17
    225/50/17
    245/45/17 - too wide?

    195/50/18 - too thin?
    215/45/18
    245/40/18 - too wide?

    185/45/19 - too thin?
    215/40/19
    245/35/19 - too wide?

    - Even though the 2.0 GT uses a different stock tyre specs, the results are still the same as the rest of the models.
    - Calculated using the tire calculators found here.
    - Calculations are done without taking into consideration rim offset, wheel alignment and car height.
    - Main aim is to provide an idea of the most suitable tyre profile with min error margin relative to stock tyre specs.
    - Please do take note that different specs might have different effect to FC of your ride.
    - Handling characteristics of your ride might also be affected depending on the specs of the tires used.

    actually it's also very much depends if the car is lowered or not, and offset of the rims does play some part too. I'm not too sure about other size, so contribute a bit on whatever I know. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    195/50/18 - Can fit the stock rims since stock rims only 18x7.5 but the stretch might not be enough and end up no side wall.

    215/45/18 - stock tyre size.

    225/40/18 - OK with or without lower

    235/40/18 - very likely need to roll rear fender to drop it safe.

    245/40/18 - can but need to do fender rolling.

    actually i din really take into account the height. the impt point here is the correct size with min error margin. i assume the car is of stock height.

    Maybe the owner did a wide body conversion. 245 very high chance will hit fender. Or he could have set to negative camber.

    definitely ok if you're on stock suspension. Compared to using 225/40/R18 profile, you cannot lower the ride as much.

    hey guys, I'm planning on buying new mags and tyres for my Lancer EX. I don't want to go for 18", is there anyone here using 17" rims? Any recommendations are highly appreciated. Thanks!
