Yesterday I was teaching a friend to drive stick in my Mirage, and she ended up hitting a curb; which of course got the sidewall of one of my tires.
I have contacted all 12 tire suppliers in my area; none of them had or were even able to order a 165/65 r14. My only option would be to drive 70 miles on the highway with my doughnut to my nearest mitsubishi dealer to purchase a tire for $111 + installation.
I was told I could switch all four of my tires to 170/70 r14 for the same price of one tire. I am considering this because it would be less of a hassle to continue purchasing this size.
Has anyone ever converted to this size? If so, did it mess with your speedometer?
Has anyone ever switched to a 15 rim?
