Guys Iam planning for an upsize for my Lancer, since the topic is in same context I dint want to start a different thread, hence posting it here.

I need pointers on upsizing my wheels to 16" Profile 45 for my LANCER wat do you guys think?

Or if you are suggesting the 15" 50-55 profile will there be a great difference in the way the car looks between the 15" and 16".

Advice...

hey dude,
u gotta decide whats important for you...if u feel looks are the utmost importance, go for 195/50/R15, if u want performance, go for 175/70/R13 or something in between would be 185/60/R14. check out the thread i had started for this

Thanks very much guys.... Will check the 15" ers. Have a look at the design options of the rims Iam looking at.

HR - H125 - this design is very close to the Enkei - RP03

Lenso - GT05

Contact details mate. How does Nexen tyres compare with Yokohomas. The Nexen 15" cost around 3k. I checked the Bridgestones too, very nice tyres but 4k a piece :(
