    It may not be the same size as the normal wheels, but it is neither intended nor required. It is intended to be a temporary accommodation until repairs or replacement can be done - just enough to get you to the repair garage.

    Try this post - it might help you in your search. Toyota & Mazda center bore size are both too small.

    Thank you Eggman. A 14" or a 15" iron wheel will probably not fit the space of the spare wheel...

    The chart lists options with center bores that are compatible with our Mirage. You can choose whatever diameter wheel you think is best.

    As it turns out my Mirage does have a 15" iron rim wheel as a temporary spare.







    My apologies for not doing this sooner for you! I hope this answers your questions.

    These pictures are in a photo album available from my profile called spare tire detail. There you can browse through the pictures and see the sizing info from the sidewall.

    Best wishes on your search, and let us know what you come up with.

    Thank you. I thought the original was a 14" because of the inscription on the tire 115/70D14 i thought the 14 was the wheel diameter. The center of the wheel its not compatible with other 4/100 wheels.

    Whats size should i search on scrapyards?

    Per the owners manual it is a T115/70D14. EDITED!! Is the 14" a measure of the bead seating area or the outside of the rim itself?
