same tire size on Mirage as 1st gen. Insight

Tires are veerrrry interesting...

Dunlop Enasave -- the exact same size as the Bridgestone RE92's on the 1st generation Insight: 165/65R14.

And the same tire used on Mitsu's iMiEV electric car. So they should have good LRR performance.

It will be extremely interesting to see a comparison to the RE92's. At the very least, Insight owners will now have another replacement tire option for years to come. (Rumours always swirl that the RE92 is being discontinued...)
