Default Lancer Tyre Size help for 15inch

Hi guys , i'm changing my stock alloys to a lenso 15inch Nx

http://www.uniracingwheel.com/wangye/LENSO-NX.jpg

why 15inch ?

cos i want performance and looks. cos if i use a 16inch the ride gonna get hard right.

also i drive mostly on high ways .

which size rubber should i use

2055015?

I think the NX Series has 15 inchers, the pic you have posted doesn't indicate 15 inchers though.
The lancer's PCD is 100(NX series is 100 PCD),so make sure that you pick up 100 PCD and 205/50/R15 is perfect me thinks.

Wait till the experts comment on the upsize.

Hey redyeye, I think rjstyles has given you good advice on the upsize.

The lancer also takes 205/55-15 but one will have to be careful with the offset as that can foul with the wheel arch.

Perfect suggestion for a Lancer.

Yup, go for 205/50/15. I fitted that size on my Lancer and have had no problems with scraping or fouling. Perfect upsize.
There will be an speedo error of around 3.9% with this size, but as long as you have this in mind, it should not be a problem.

205/55/15 is a closer match to the OE size, but as vid says, it may foul with the wheel arches, especially under some load. It's also a slightly uncommon size and not easy to source.

GLX and SFXi had two different tyre sizes with quite a different OD which why calculating the upsizes for Lancer still creates some doubt.

195/55 is what I'd use for the 87bhp car.
