    I agree the 175/55r15 tire size is about as rare as the 165/65r14 tires.

    Just for reference sake (anyone reading this) -

    175/65r14 (23" diameter) would be a common alternative to the...

    The UR is a solid smaller diameter bar, but I have seen those busted on a Mirage, too. The bar will bust off the end plates. May be able to have it welded back in that case, however.

    Honda used cylinder deactivation on the 2005-07 Accord. The fact that Honda dropped that technology says something in itself. Honda is the largest engine maker in the world.

    Paint, rust, & weld are not the issue. The pipe itself can't handle the force of the twisting. The weld didn't break on my first sway bar. The pipe twisted off near the weld. Did the heat of...

    My first edition broke in the exact same spot. I don't want to say much about the last edition on my Mirage, because it might jinx it!

    Those rear axles twist pretty easily. I think those rear...

    Even when I stated "where are the 2022 Mirages" yesterday, I didn't realize it was as bad as it is.

    The dealer not disclosing that the engine had been replaced prior to you purchasing the car is where the disappointment begins, and some of these issues could be related to that. It created some...

    Mohammad - you should share a list of your Mirage youtube.com clips. You may get another subscriber, too! :)

    I think it's good to promote what you have done on the forum whenever you can.

    If one is shopping for 165/65r14 tires, the Kumho Solus TA31 is sort of today's benchmark in my mind (because of its 60,000 mile warranty). It's $78 @ Discount Tire & $78.81 @ Walmart today. ...

    I agree that low profile tires on a truck look absolutely stupid!
