    This isn't related at all, because you don't have TPMS. But -

    After adding a pair of snow tires without sensors - I've driven to work (12+ miles) with no dash light. About half way home, the...

    A small trailer with a lawnmower or snow blower on it isn't probably going to over tax a Mirage.

    It's not about horsepower. A Farmall H tractor is 19 hp at the drawbar. Yet it will pull a...

    Since you have that heavy gate in the rear of your trailer, I would guess the other noise is your ball/hitch rattling in your receiver. If you don't have a small amount of extra weight on the...

    All good stuff! If I had to put my money on the last manual being offered in the States, it would be the Mazda Miata. The Miata didn't make the list, because I would guess they are all 6-speed...

    I can't argue that. When I go visit my parents, I go through the Fox Valley/Green Bay area of Wisconsin. If I lived on the eastern side of state (Green Bay to Milwaukee), I wouldn't be as happy...

    When I drove my 1990 Ford Festiva for 14 years, I somewhat trashed the cheap seats. They were a combination fabric/vinyl, & the vinyl looked bad. I used seat covers to mask it.

    Since I know my trim levels, I would feel cheated by you! I would walk away from the deal & not look back!

    Just kidding of course!

    If Top Fuel would try 185/65r15 tires next, you would have your answer. His current 185/60r15 (23.7") tires have a 4.9% variance (compared to factory 175/55r15 tires). If he jumped to a 185/65r15,...

    Is it?

    My spare is a 115/70r14.

    115/70r14 has an outside diameter of 20.3". Factory tires are 22.4" (14") or 22.6" (15").

    I wish a full size spare fit in the spare tire spot. Since...

    I didn't include them in my previous post, but a few 165/65r14 snow tire options exist. For those who may be interested, these seem the most common ones for the States -

    14" rim should have 14" tires (last two digits need to be 14).

    Somewhat restating from my post #5

    Tire #1 = 165/65r14 (22.4") - 14" factory tire size
    Tire #2 = 175/70r14 (23.6")
    Tires #3 =...

    Since I first started this thread, I have used up a pair of 165/65r14 Federal SS657 tires.

    At the time of my original post, a $40-45 Federal SS657 (420AA) tire seemed like a good alternative to...

    If I hear the name Space Star, I don't really vision a small economy car.

    I sort of liked the Plymouth/Dodge Colt name, & those were basically Mitsubishi vehicles.
