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 some very winding hills and valleys with 9% grade. I have made it through each unscaved. My latest was driving through the recent Noreaster. Part of which was on a highway that had not been plowed with about 6 inches of snow. I was able to drive 3550 mi per hour through a blinding snow not because I was trying to prove anything I just wanted make sure I did make it through. (There were only 2 other cars both 4 wheel drive no where near me.) I saw some reviews that said these tires were no good in the snow....I beg to differ. I never would have even attempted driving in the snow with the stock Michelin's. Great job Han kook.
