Centre bore same, pcd 114.3mm x 5 correct, offset aprox 35p to 38p also correct, 2015 CJ’s lancer standard 18 inch tire I think is 215/40 x 18, these are 235/55 x18, so your looking at aprox height diff of 15mm (7.5mm t&b) I’d say you would be ok as long as standard car height is correct, mind you these are aprox, always best to test fit if possible.

If you do have a problem more likely turning under braking/bumps in road front only, rear tire should be fine in theory.

Oh yeah I nearly forgot, if you use these rims with that tire size you speedo will be out, it will read too slow by at least 12%, so say your doing 110 you really will be doing 98 kph, you not likely to get ticket but won’t be popular on the motorway !

Diameter is way off

CJ is typically 215/40/18 = 630mm diameter

Outlander 235/55/18 = 716mm diameter.

Difference being 86mm or 43mm thicker sidewall.
