2000 Mirage tire size

11-10-2005, 07:19 AM
The car came equipped with 175/65R/14 tires which are now due for
replacement. Has anyone used 185/60R/14 as a replacement? Any
clearance problems in the wheel well?

it wont be a problem at all. im on 205/40/ 17, if anything it should help the handling being wider and smaller tire wall.

Thanks for the follow-up. Just one more question please. Is the difference in the speedometer reading significant?
