Initial Review, 2,500 Miles on Tires
This tire has completley transformed the Mazda-3 hATCHBACK 2010 THAT i HAVE, INTO a much more refined and sophistocated car . It achieved this by , A# - reducing the road noise significantly B# - making the ride more comfortable buy comparison to the OEM avid which were hard and jarring when anything bigger than a dime was encountered with the car as the suspension in the Mazdas is as Firm as they come - Many dislike the Mazda due the the firm suspension --however this tire put the car into a luxurious Freeway ride mode that is plesant and enjoyable and when encountering road inmperfections becomes a real winner absorbing the impacts and making the vehicle feel like a much much more expensive german vehicle that responds with a "thud " instead of a wham -- Its just an improvment in every aspect I say if you want PURE unadulterated performance and dont mind `the jarring daily hits then get a pure perf tire that you will replace every 20K and live with the harshness that you get with the super cornering --I like the compromise as It still handles far better than I will ever need and does it will plesasure and smoothness---a real adult tire that make you feel like you have the best of all worlds .
