    Actually, your suggestion was a good one! I just know Top Fuel's present 185/55r15 tires are the exact same diameter as Dirk's 175/65r14 tires. Top Fuel new choice is a substantial jump in size,...

    Some of the points in this review are valid. I couldn't watch the entire review, & it surely could have be done better. The review is much lamer than a Mirage.

    I really like my 2017 Mirage. ...

    Top Fuel can't use the 175/65r14 (23" outside diameter) tires that Dirk uses, because he switched to 15" rims.

    Even Scotty would have know that! :)

    I do think 175/65r14 (23") & 185/55r15...

    I don't particularly care for the Smart Car myself, but it has done extremely well in crash tests. Smart Cars are made by Mercedes.

    I feel Top Fuel has given you some really good advice. I would move past Pep Boys, because the main source of your problem is beyond their ability to correct.

    I have both factory & aftermarket 14" steel rims. There's no way a 13" steel rim would clear everything on my 2017 Mirage. 13" rims would probably fit on the rear, but 14" rims just barely clear...

    Apparently, I struck a nerve! I apologize for that. There's nothing wrong with a dealership charging $25 to replace a rear wiper blade. Likewise, there is nothing wrong with someone stating...

    Replacement rear wiper is about $10. If you bought all three wipers at once, free shipping would apply @ Amazon.

    Even though their brain wasn't working properly, the stability & traction control on their Mirage seemed to be working perfectly. Probably not good Mirage ad material, however.

    Personally, I don't mind the TPMS light being on. It's not a flashing light after a few flashes. I value the extra traction of snow tires more.

    I don't find the light to be any more annoying...

    My Subaru Forester's 14" rear wiper snaps off in the same manner. I don't think the 12" Mirage wiper is that unique.

    It does feel the thing may break. Good description Cobrajet!
