Hey there!

Just a question, I have a 2009 ES Lancer, Rims 16īs.
But Im in love of Mitsubishi Lancer GTS Rims 18īs. Fabric Rims
There is a implication, a suspension level, to change that? Or just put on the new rims?
Tks for your help!
Best Regards!

The 18in factory wheels should not provide any issues physically. They might to your wallet though... take a peek around at the current pricing of your tires vs the cost of tires for the 18in wheels.

Maybe you can ask somebody to borrow their spare tire for a few minutes ...
Maybe your friendly mitsu dealer already did it for somebody ...
or they have documentation on which rim and tire is allowed for your car ...
or you can look in car manual ...

As long as the circumference of tire is same your speedo will work within legal limits.
Width of tire might be a problem - to be on safe side try to get the same width tire.
If width is too large your tire will start rubbing on something ... you donīt want that.

They are a direct fit. I put the eclipse 10 spoke wheel on my lancer they are 235/45r18. Much bigger then the gts wheels.
