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...)
Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
