    I think you are trying to make those of us that service our own car feel better about ourselves! :)

    Does sound like someone make a big goof! Sad part is they didn't correct it, or they weren't...

    When your car is also your boat, you don't have to buy an expensive vehicle to pull your boat to the lake!

    50,000 miles from a factory tire would be quite good in my opinion.

    Like Basic said, they want you coming back for new tires asap.

    I must be old. I remember when cars didn't have cup holders, but almost every car had an ash tray or two.

    I don't set the bar that high! I compare car noise to a motorcycle with a fairing up front! :)

    Many tire companies that supply tires to auto manufacturers produce several models of tires. Most auto companies are not going to purchase the top of the line tire offerings for their new vehicles. ...

    Regardless of past experiences -

    A 165/65R14 Falken Sincera SN250A A/S (320BB/no warranty) is the current 14" factory tire for the 2021+ Mirages. If you bought this tire elsewhere, it's going to...

    I have a hard time believing the same tire (model & size) were that different? Did those tires have the same UTQG rating?

    I have never found factory tires to be that spectacular, but I also...

    Those 4 words alone probably eliminated 99+% of most typical Mirage owners. :)

    I doubt rich people give cars like the Mirage much thought, unless they have an obsession about cheering for the...

    It really doesn't matter where the tire comes from. It's just important to realize a factory Falken Sincera SN250A A/S tire is not the same as a Falken Sincera SN250 A/S tire that has a 720AB rating...

    Mitsubishi changed to 165/65r14 Falken Sincera SN250A A/S factory tires for the new 2021 models with 14" wheels. I believe Top Fuel was the first to notice this.

    For anyone reading this, it's a...

    My goal is quite simple. I have 16 wheels/tires for my two vehicles (Mirage & Forester). Each vehicle has 4 TPMS codes. I simply use those 4 codes, & an Autel TS408 tool with Autel MX-Sensor 2...

    Yep! distance = speed x time, speed = distance/time, & time = distance/speed

    I apparently look at this differently?

    I calculate my mpg by using the odometer (not the speedometer).

    miles traveled divided by gallons of gas used

    If larger tires make my odometer reading off, my mpg calculations reading...

    I don't blame you for being frustrated. I am also very thankful for all the time & work Top Fuel has put into sharing his knowledge of a Mirage's TPMS.

    I don't mean to throw salt into the...

    I wouldn't replace a sensor before it dies. I am still waiting for one of my factory sensors to die on my 2011 Subaru Forester, & that hasn't happened yet. If I replaced sensors every time I...

    I suspect a 175/65r14 (23" diameter) tire may be closer to the actual speedometer speed, but I don't know if anyone has actually confirmed that?

    The two factory tire sizes aren't even the same...

    Yeah! It's a base model (does have A/C, power windows, power/remote locks), but no cruise control. Plus, the $1888/$1475 Mirage had remote starter added & comes with two sets of wheels.

    $1888 = $1475 USD

    That car would cost 3 times that much here, & it may not be a fully loaded manual either.

    Here's one approximately the same year/mileage, & it is listed over 5 times the...

    Driving back & forth between two gas stations on the same block doesn't count, however! :)

    That was an older thread. There have been several issues with 195 wide tires from other members in the past. I don't remember a 185 wide tire having the same issue for anyone.

    Personally, I feel 14" rims gives one more tire options than 15" rims for a Mirage. A 175/55r15 factory size tire is not a common size, but 185/55r15 is quite common in the States, & it has the same...
