I happen to own a set of 15 inch 2002 Mitsubishi lancer oz rims [they are on my red rocket project colt] so I decided to get another set of them, but I wanted to see if I could get them to work on my "87 fwd colt vista...and after bolting one on the front wheels [without spacers of any kind] they work without rubbing on the stock vista suspension or frame, and honestly if you own one of these rare wagons, I highly recommend you swap these rims on, they make ride quality way better then the stock 13 [or optional 14 inch]... And in case you are Wondering the tires I am currently running on the vista are bigger 14 inch eagle alloy rims, but the back spacing on them wont clear the 2 piston calipers on expo knuckles.

They also allow space for future big brake upgrades, since these clear the 2 piston calipers from the Galant vr4, but you have to swap to a non captive hub setup...Maybe the dsm or later [non captive] vista/expo/summit wagon knuckles will work?

I'm getting another set of these and might go this route, or press the 5 lug hub from a dsm and hope that they clear the vista frame and struts.
if you have any other rim choices that you know work feel free to post them up.
