True, but weren't you running on 26 psi that day? I'd like to see how the ride is, when the pressure is increased to 28-30 psi.

Recomended pressure is usually written near the driver's door. You can also check your car manual for the right pressure.

lambo if u buying a brand new lancer and if they are wearing 15'' ur warranty for the suspension will be void . so its better u confirm with the dealer or get 14'' with 185 mm rubber

but doesn the lancer come with 12" wheels as OEM. as far as i know only the sfx used to come with 14 inchers.and as bhp rightly said , if you increase your rim size to 15 " you might be meesing around with your warranty.

any way i feel the best would be 205/ 55 R15.but before you get anything done definitly check up about the warranty and all

You have a good sense of humour man I'd no clue that Lancer came with 12" tyres.
Remember, its a Lancer not a Zen.

hey shan i am running on 28psi...not 26. i have yokohamas on my car. you can contact skyline on 9821023144.
recommended pressure is for stock tubed tires...unles it comes shod with tubeless tires from the company.
ideal pressure for tubeless in city is 28psi...but then again depends from person to person

ive seen 16 & 17 inch in action so if i were u id go for it. but dont put anything under 15 inch on a lancer it will look too tiny. rubber as well 205 or 215 or normal ones which is 195.

I will ask the guy to sign a letter saying that if we put K n N and 15 inchers, the warranty will not be messed up.
so far i think its 195/55/R15.
Will go check up.

Dude trust me, DO NOT put 205 on the lancer unless u have some engine mods. That car cannot take that much width with such little power. One of my close frnds has a lancer with 15 inchers he put 205 at first for a week he got so fed up as the pick up was almost dead and car got really draggy so he went back and changed it to 195/50 and the performance was much better, his avg also went up. I had driven his car with 205 and 195 and there was a big difference in the drive. Also i recommend keep the profile as much as possible as the lancer suspension sux big time not sure is eagle f1s r avaible in 195/55 i doubt it coz when he was fitting it 55 profile wasnt there on 195s.
