Taking Your Mazda Miata to the Next Level

The Mazda Miata has long been a crowd favorite with driving enthusiasts. While it's an amazing vehicle, the level of excitement can be taken to the next level with the right equipment.    Tires are a top priority and the Dunlop Direzza ZII Star Spec and Hankook Ventus RS-3 (Version 2) are both favorites. When we tested each last fall, the ZII Star Spec...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin X-Ice Xi3

I owned a set of Michelin X-Ice on a different car several years ago,and was happy with those, so thought it was worth trying these again.We just mounted a set of 4 new 215/60R-17 Michelin X-Ice Xi3 on our Mazda 6 and the car performs as if it's four wheel drive. We have been through all kinds of ice and snow here in upstate NY, and these tires are great....  Read More

More Tire Choices for Your 2013 Mazda CX-5

Variety may be the spice of life, but it's no fun for tire manufacturers. Tire production can be difficult for some manufacturers to produce the latest and greatest option for vehicles that have an odd size. Case in point: the 2013 Mazda CX-5 Grand Touring's unusual 225/55R19. If you're not happy with the few choices in this size, one option to consider is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

The Pirelli Cinturato is by far the best tire I have installed on my Mazda3. I had Michelin's prior to this purchase and they were good, but the Pirelli rides smoother and grips the road better in my opinion. I'm finding that all the positive reviews for this tire are true. I was a little nervous... never bought a Pirelli before, but so far it has lived up...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Potenza S-04 Pole Position

This is my 3rd set of tires on my 2007 Mazda Miata (51,500 miles). My MX-5 feels and responds better than it ever did. Drives better than when it was new. I love these tires. They have made driving hugely fun again. Cornering is great, acceleration is improved, ride comfort is much better (my wife even commented on this) and they are relatively quiet. Highly...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

Replacing Yokohama S.drive summer tires that were old on my lowered Mazda3 5-door. I tend to accelerate and brake rather hard and take my turns quickly.The Yokohama's were like driving on railroad tracks: direct and instantaneous response to all input. From what I've gather reading the comments, this is due to very stiff sidewalls. I liked this quality...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Winter Sport 4D

Great Snow Tire. Acceleration, braking and cornering are very good. I find them to be just as quiet as the OEM Summer tires. I have two Mazda-3 vehicles: one with the 4Ds one with the 3Ds. The 4Ds seems to have improved braking over the 3Ds, the other attributes are similar (I can't tell any difference). These tires love the wet snow, they rip through it...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus

We only have about 2000 miles on these tires but they are a huge improvement over the previous Continental Extreme contact DWS. The biggest improvement is the decrease in road noise. The Mazda 3 is a loud car on the highway, I believe, due to a lack of sound deadening but these new Pirelli tires make the it far better than before. The traction in the dry is...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Hankook Ventus S1 noble2

These tires a re a perfect pairing for the Mazda 6. They were a little sticky until they broke in a bit but now I have 3k and they are great. Quiet smooth ride great handling and cornering. I have not had any issues in the rain. The icing on the cake is I have driven in about 8 snow storms so far. I have a combined highway, city and rural Ct. commute through...  Read More
