    Wanted: Used Rims and Tires for 2014/15 Mirage

    I have a 2014 with stock alloys. Snow tires currently mounted on them. Looking for second set of steelies or alloys to mount all season or summer tires on. If you have tires on them already even better. PM me or email bcressy@gmail.com.

    bcressy1987, if you are considering a second set of tires (for any reason) it might be worth looking into a set of 15" rims if only for a bigger selection of tires. Keep in mind there are several cars whose wheels will fit our Mirage. You might be able to find something locally, such as at a salvage yard, or Craigslist that could catch your eye.

    For example, I'm looking at this: Craigslist Pittsburgh - Mini Cooper wheels + snow tires

    Although I haven't heard back from the seller yet...

    Looking at my wheel covers reminds me that I should probably go with a cheap set of used rims that I can touch up after curb scrapes. I'd like to go with 15's too. We'll see...

    Trying to find a used set of 15" rims and wheels myself.

    Eggman that deal in Pittsburgh looks awesome. I'd jump all over that - hopefully you get it. I see a lot of Craigslist posts that don't leave any contact info which is rather frustrating. How are you supposed to contact those people, through the Craigslist email system or what?

    I always use the Craigslist email relay to avoid spammers. I don't know who's posting the ads and I don't know who I'm responding to so to avoid hassles I stick with the email relay.

    In any case they never replied back so either the items are sold or it's another spammer trying to collect information. You should respond to the ad and maybe they will respond to you. Maybe they only want to deal local, so go for it.

    Those Mini rims look to be a great replacement for the Mirage. They are almost the same offset and width, but 15" instead of 14".

    I agree. I would never put my phone number in a Craigslist ad. I use their email relay to screen serious buyers.

    I send them a Craigslist email on a long shot there is any kind of response... otherwise, back to digging for wheels. Thanks!

    Craigslist isn't very popular where I live, we use kijiji more. I don't worry about posting my number. I find that most people who reply through the websites email relay can often be keyboard warriors, time wasters with no money or kids with nothing better to do than troll people.
    I find that If someone replies by text or actually calls, then they are often more likely to buy. I've had a lot of time wasted answering countless faceless emails, I don't reply to them anymore. At least if you have their phone number you can google it and sometimes see if they are a scammer or even who they are through facebook to see if they're a flake.
