    they fit great! they are closer to the caliper then i am used too around 3-4mm away from it.
    After starting it up and making a lovely trip to auto zone to replace a security lugnut i wrenched apart the check tire light has not come on!

    They look great. Is there any difference in size from the original tires?

    I was going to ask if you swapped the sensors over...but I guess that answers the question.

    So you didn't swap the TPMS sensors to your new wheels?

    My dealer wanted 80 a tire plus labor plus the rebuild kits.. So it was about 400 or so.. The car isn't worth it

    Yowza!

    Dismount 14" tires & remove TPMS sensors [ $10 per wheel ]
    Dismount 13" tires, install TPMS valve stems & TPMS sensors, mount/balance wheels [ $20 per wheel ]
    4 TPMS valve stems [$8 each]

    Hmmm...maybe this would have cost around $40 per wheel at a normal tire shop?

    I'll probably just order the pieces myself and install. Then just replace balance them.

    Check out this video...the TPMS sensors used in the Mirage (VS90) are shown from 0:42 - 1:14...

    https://youtu.be/AZQh7qqWBJI

    You want to re-use your old sensors if possible. They contain ID numbers already stored in your car's computer. New sensors will require re-programming...a process only a Mitsubishi dealer can do ($100). Several of us have tried alternate methods and nothing worked.

    If you decide to buy new sensors, find a shop that can "clone" your existing sensors. That means they can have the same ID numbers copied into them that your original sensors have. If they do this, no reprogramming is necessary and you will save a $100 trip to the dealer.
