Hi Oren, The hub cap on the Lancer should just pop off with either a tug at one of the spokes or prying behind it gently with a screw driver then pulling.This is the full wheel cover hub cap you are talking about, and not a small center cap right?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
yes. still not poping off what about the metal cord holding it on?
Expert:  Doug replied 1 year ago.
Are you talking about the large metal ring that goes around the perimeter of the back of the hub cap?
Expert:  Doug replied 1 year ago.
If you are, that is an expansion ring that just pushes outward on the plastic clips that wedge inside the wheel lip. If you are talking about something else, perhaps you can get a photo? I would suspect it is an aftermarket hub cap if it is anything else, as that is the only metal part of the genuine Mitsubishi hub caps.
