Does anyone know if these would fit:

15" OZ racing wheels taken from a 2003 Mitsubishi Lancer with 12,000 miles.The bolt pattern is 4 lug,4 1/2"pcd with a 46mm offset.

I know the bolt patter will fit but it seems everyone else is running between 38mm - 42mm offset.

You know what, I've heard different stories on what the offset of the stock 15" GT alloys really are. I took mine off and on the back read 6 15 46. Now from my unknowing eye, I would have guessed that meant 6" wide, 15" diameter, and 46 mm offset. If not, then what?

Sounds about right to me but remember tht stock offset will not work if you are getting a rim wider than 6". And most 17"s are going to be 7" wide.

They do fit. I can take a picture later tonight to show how close the clearance is. It's verrrry close but there is no rubbing. I'd only use them for drag, though. The offset sets them in too far and the narrower tire doesn't allow for great handling. I think I might just sell two of mine. :)
