You have to define "good".

Since this is EcoModder, I'll assume low rolling resistance is your main priority.

Mitsubishi fits 165/65 14 inch LRR tires on the Mirage (Dunlop Enasaves). The Bridgestone Potenza LRR RE92 that were OEM on the 1st generation Honda Insight are still available. Same size as the Mirage's.

The RE92's significantly out-rolled any of the tires in my fleet at the time. I haven't seen a direct comparison against the Enasaves yet, but I would love to.

You're unlikely to stick those on a Ranger though, for size reasons.

14's are definitely getting rare in North America.
