    Question Can 13" rims be used?

    This site -- https://winter-tires.pmctire.com/enw -- says:

    We suggest also a size better adapted for winter driving (implies buying adapted wheels):
    13" - 175/70-R13

    The 13" winter tires are easier to get, so 13" rims seem an attractive alternative to the stock 14" ones.

    I was gonna say it but Darin beat me to it. A few members have had Honda Civic VX wheels on their Mirages.

    Can '17 owners take advantage of 13" wheels as well, especially steel wheels for snow tires?

    I guess not, shame.

    Zero, my 2014 ES Plus gone but not forgotten. We're driving the Beetle of the 21st century

    Why? The larger brakes are considered an upgrade.

    I'm sure you can post a trade and find an owner of a 2014 or 2015 Mirage who would be willing to trade with you.

    Lol, I'm quite happy with my '17 and the enhanced brakes, I don't think there's a 13" wheel tire combo out there that would entice me to trade my car.

    Well, that's a good point but I meant trading brakes, not the whole car.
