    Not sure of your location Pryme but here's an example of what can be found on Craigslist. Sometimes folks just want to clear out the garage.

    Listen to Eggman. Don't spend $200 on a set of steel wheels when that kind of money can buy you a nice set of used wheels that will look a lot better.

    As far as TPMS goes...

    If you want to have 2 sets of wheels/tires and maintain TPMS functionality in both sets, this can be done without having to program the car's computer every time you swap wheels (which is expensive because there's not an aftermarket tool available yet that works on a Mirage).

    Each Mirage TPMS sensor has a unique numeric ID. The car's computer stores the 4 ID's of the TPMS sensors. If the computer doesn't see those 4 TPMS ID's every time the car starts, the TPMS light will come on. You can have the 4 ID's of your current sensors cloned into another set of (clone-able) sensors. That will allow you to have 2 sets of wheels with the same 4 TPMS ID's. Yes...you will have to spend money on the sensors. But you will never have to have a dealer program them (which costs about $100). Check out the video in THIS post for more info.

    Search craigslist / kijiji for 4 lug 14" steelies from a Honda Civic. You'll save a bunch and they will fit.

    Where did you find that the Civic center bore is 54mm?

    I thought I read that on the big wheel list on this forum but I very well could be wrong.

    Okay. I used Wheel-Size.com as my source for sizing info. Let's look at the Civic:

    Wheel-Size.com: Honda Civic

    Year Bolt Pattern Center Bore Rim Diameter Width Offset
    1979 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 13" - 14" 4.5" - 5" 45 mm
    1980 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 13" - 14" 4.5" - 5" 45 mm
    1985 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 13" - 15" 5" - 6" 45 mm
    1990 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 13" - 15" 4.5" - 6" 45 mm
    2000 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 13" - 16" 5" - 6" 45 mm
    2005 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 14" - 17" 5.5" - 6.5" 45 mm
    2016 Mirage 4x100 mm 56.1 mm 14" - 15" 4.5" - 5" 46 mm

    I skipped years as I don't have the time right now to type it all in.

    Knowing that some info on the internets can be unreliable, I would like to find other sources that can back this up as I wouldn't want to mislead anyone who wants to buy a used set of wheels.

    That being said - from what we have here, I'd say the Civic rims are comparable, and would be a good fit.

    Also - don't forget to check out these other resources for wheel fitment.
    WillTheyFit.com
    Insert your existing wheel and tyre specs, and the desired size, and the outcome is shown on the diagram.
    Wheel-Size.com
    Rim & Tire Size Calculator. Custom Offsets. Play with specs, try different settings, compare results.
    TireSize.com
    Compare metric or inch tire specs side by side and view with our tire visualizer. Also find vehicle speedometer error and available alternate tire sizes.

    Best wishes.

    I've actually been playing with this lately, although I am using a Lancer but I have learned some tricks that might make it work with a Mirage or at least would be worth a try. Cobrajet when you were trying to get the mitsureset to work which TPMS activator were you using?

    I got it working on my 2010 Lancer GTS, but I had to have the car running, and I am using an Autel 401 TPMS activator, I had a TPMS service required indicator and didn't want to pay the dealer even though that would have been cheaper then buying the tools but now I have them for the future etc. I came across your post and created an account to just post the information hoping maybe to help someone else in the future, not a lot of information out there concerning the mitsureset.

    If anyone has any questions, or if any mirage users located in St. Louis that want to test it out, just let me know and we can try to meet up.

    I was using an ATEQ VT30. It triggered the sensors just fine, but there was no response at all from the MitsuReset. The instructions very clearly state "key on/engine off" when doing the procedure.

    I have heard that the MitsuReset works with other models and years, but I don't think anyone has gotten it to work with the Mirage.

    I had an email exchange with one of their engineers shortly after Cobrajet and I went through the same frustrating experience last year with this tool. It was pretty evident through my discussion with ATEQ that they never actually tested the device on a Mirage. They seemed surprised when I told them that multiple Mirage owners have tried this product and it failed to operate as described. Because it worked on a Lancer, I think they assumed it would be OK on the Mirage. That's not a good assumption in the world of Mitsubishi.

    I gave the product a very detailed, honest negative review on Amazon and said "Don't buy this if you own a Mirage...because it won't work." Shortly after that, the product disappeared from Amazon's website. Hmmm...

    If I ever go down this road again, I will be looking into clone-able sensors so I don't have to worry about anything interfacing with the Mirage's computer. That's where everyone seems to run into problems.
