    Carid shows them as out of stock but Summit Racing shows a ship date of about 3 weeks.

    Yes, those will fit fine. I checked the center bore size and it is fine but they are heavy 20 lbs each.

    Visit this thread to see what other OEM wheels will fit the Mirage. Might be able to get a great deal on the interwebs!

    You need 14" or 15" wheels with 4 wheel stud holes that are 100mm apart (referred to as 4 x 100 )...

    This is a very common bolt pattern.

    You also have to make sure the center bore (the big hole in the center of each wheel) is large enough to fit over a Mirage hub, which is 56mm.


    Before you spend $250 on a set of 14" black steel wheels with no hubcaps, there are aftermarket aluminum wheels that will look a ton better, be much lighter, and won't cost you that much more. Do not pull the trigger on something without posting it here first!

    I agree with Top Fuel. I wouldn't rush into anything. I would check salvage yards, & someone on here may have some suggestions on that.

    I have a pair of these black steel rims. They were $50/rim with free shipping at the time. I needed a pair to mount some Nokian snow tires on the first winter I had my Mirage. I didn't have time to shop around for used ones.

    Like others have said - 4 x 100 bolt pattern & 56.1 hub bore is important. This company offers different hub bore sizes, & you want the right one. This website hasn't been working the best for me, but I received my rims in a few days. 15" black steel rims are $60/rim.

    I would shop around some before settling on black steel rims.

    I'm just concerned about safety now that I know the tires can cause such damage to the fender. But I think I should be ok driving more carefully. Trying to control my stress level

    Fenders can also cause damage to tires.
    Simplify and add lightness.

    Just something else to watch for. Those sharp fender edges can shred tires. I've never seen it cause a tire to blow out, but I've seen sidewalls shredded a little bit, or the tread where it contacts something get shaved. It happens.

    I've personally had this happen. Not so much that it was dangerous, but it's pretty annoying to shred the sidewalls on a brand new set of tires! Ribbons of rubber.

    Simplify and add lightness.
