I've already started stockpiling ecomods for the car...

^ Dunlop Enasaves.

These are OEM LRR tires from a 2014 Mirage, in 165/65R14 size -- same size, incidentally, as the 1st gen Insight. They're like new - still have some paint marks from the factory in the treads.

They roll decently on a Mirage. I'm SURE they'll roll better than the tires that are on the Mata now (stock tire size is 185/60R14).

But will they roll as well as Bridgestone Potenza RE92's? I hope to do a comparison next summer. My bet is they won't, if only because the RE92's I currently have on the Firefly are older and have half as much tread (if that).
