    Larger than 15" rim?

    Hey guys, I haven't seen a mirage with a size larger than "14 or "15. What's the largest you could go?

    Probably 15" before needing to roll the fenders.

    Low profile tires dont look like they'll be comfortable, but at least I know 17"s fit stock ride height.

    185/40/18 would fit no issues.

    If it exists... a 185/35/19 should as well.

    That may be more rare than factory 165/65-14 tires?

    Walmart, tirerack.com, & simpletire.com.com list 0 options.

    Do you have 185/40-18 tires in Canada?

    Did you mean to use 165/65r15 instead of factory 165/65r14 tires?

    185/40r18 & 185/35r19 - what tire options exist?

    This looks a little closer https://www.tacomaworld.com/tirecalc...5r14-165-35r18 and there is such thing as a 165 35 18. Why, I don't know...https://tyrestretch.com/results.php?...imMan=&Credit=

    There are tire charts that give tire sizes available for different rim sizes.

    A Mirage factory tire is 22.4" or 22.6" outside diameter depending on the 14" or 15" rim options.

    https://tiresize.com/comparison/

    Scroll down this page & click 18" tire size options.

    185 wide tires on 18" rims don't really exist.

    Click on 19" tire size options.

    185 wide tires for 19" rims don't really exist.

    I am not going to pretend to know what really fits under a Mirage. I wouldn't spend money on 18" or 19" rims without knowing what tires goes on them first?

    My Subaru Forester has 16" rims. Can't imagine putting a 16+" wheels on an economy car, but I guess some do?
