    First - All 4 tires need to match up.

    Second - 4 new tires that cost over $1000 to replace.

    Yep, Geo Prism were dependable cars, & it was a Corolla clone.

    Pontiac Vibe was a nice clone of the former Toyota Matrix, too.

    Suzuki made vehicles like the Sidekick/Tracker for GM.

    Wouldn't it be 9 gallons minus whatever you used driving to the gas station? Maybe it was a short distance?

    I don't think Walmart Weathtertech tires are offered in the States, but several 175/65r14 snow tire options exist.

    The 165/65r14 size sort of limits your choices to Dunlop Winter Maxx WM02 or...

    All vehicles I've owned get lower mpg during the winter months. I see no reason why the Mirage would be any different? I think winter blend gas is a large part of it all. Other factors are...
