> Lancer Stock Rim Question, Is a stock 14in Lancer rim identical to a Mirage rim?

My 03 lancer rim is warped. I have 185 65 14 tires on the car and recently I finally found a supposed match for the rim. The rim in the Junkyard was off of a 03 mirage. I was told they are the same rim, however the tire that was on the mirage rim was a 195 60 14. I've been told that it's ok to go wider on a rim, but I didn't think you could put a more narrow tire on a rim. I was just wondering if the two rims (03 lancer stock (hubcap rim) and 03 mirage stock (hubcap rim)) are the same? and if it's ok to match the tire size to the rest of the car?

Any takers? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/grin.gif)

Yes, the guy at the wreckers was right.

Its not so much the tyre size as the offset you need to look at with rims. The offset is how wide the rim itself is, to wide and itll scrub.

You can put varying sizes of tyres on a rim, for example, when I bought my lancer it had 14" rims with a 5.5 offset running 175/65/r14s but I changed that to a 185/65/r14

There are limits to how wide a tyre you can put on a rim but you can go wider.

The 94 mirage and the 94 lancer were almost identical and they kept that going through most of the models. While the mirage turned into a hatch and the lancer into a brick most of the earlier models shared parts.

Hope this helped (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

p.s the guys at the wreckers generally tend to know what they are talking about (IMG:style_emoticons/default/tongue.gif)
