Why 18 inch wheels?

Asked by Aug 25, 2010 at 08:51 AM about the 2010 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS 4WD

Question type: General

Low profile tyres seem a peculiar choice for dirt (gravel) roads? Anyone know why
the wheels were changed from 16 to 18 inch.  Am considering fitting the 16 inch
wheels (if I can find a set) with tyres that would give a better "baloon" effect on
rough terrain. Anyone done this?

I would swap with with you

Where abouts in the world are you, swap may be impractical - but what I need

I am in Massachusetts

Bad luck! I'm in Johannesburg, South Africa and the freight will make the swap not viable, but thanks for the contact

We tried. Hope all is well in the Southern Hemisphere

Are you still looking for a set of 16 inches? I've been looking for a set of 18" to replace my 16" that came with the LS model. I'm in Quebec, Canada though...
