    325 wide Mud Terrains versus 165 wide dedicated snow tires.
    Mirage has a LONGER wheelbase, and stability/traction control (doesn’t matter for me but does for wife)
    5l/100 vs 16l/100
    Don’t get soaked in the Mirage
    Mirage is warmer
    Mirage handles significantly better on ice (combo of 1/3rd the weight, longer wheelbase especially in ratio to track width, proper tires)

    Fair enough.

    I can see how the mirage would be 'easier' to drive for sure.
