Mazda 2 1.5 sport Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the BFGoodrich Advantage TA given 43% (185-55-15-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10563 spirited miles
Running the XL version of the T/A's but that doesn't change the fact that the compound used in these tyres is garbage. road too hot? driving on mushy crap, cold? nice and stiff but hardly any grip, wet and cold? good luck, you'll need it.

the tyres are a good grip range in the wet and dry, certainly better then XM2's i was on but the unpredictability of the compound you never know what the hell it's going to do, some days i can drift on these by pushing it hard round a corner, other days it does nothing but roll to an uncomfortable level. The side walls are softer then my bicycle tyres, although the irony is you need to run low tyres pressures to even get good contact patch or handling so you lose out on the "comfort" not that it was even there to begin with because its so damn soft all it does is cause crap handling. 1000kg car? yea na, handles like a boat with these.. it holds the power but that's about all it does. for the price its a ripoff, $800 for these useless rubber bands. might work better on a heavier car around 1400kg but at that point you would want a superior tyre to prevent poor handling since you would need to modulate your tyre pressures away form square to staggered. I did replace my rear shocks and handling improved but that just says the tyres are so bad that it needs soft suspension to even function adequately, not what id expect from a tyre this overpriced.

final verdict for me, id rather go with the lower grip astronomically better handling MX2, i mean they suck in the wet and don't always hold the power even though its only 83kw, but hell at least when i get in the car and set the PSI correctly it handles how it should with no random changes with temperature or moisture. hell if you are wondering how good the XM2's are, they aren't but they were built well, well enough that the Pilot Sport 5's are based off them.

I replaced my OEM Toyo Proxes R55a in185/60/16 to 195/55/16 and I'm very happy cause they have excellent grip in all conditions, brakes, fuel consumption, cornering, and good comfort as well....it's a perfect choice...so amazing in good price!! I would buy it again!!!

I've had these tyres for 5 months and in that time I have done a fair bit of backroad driving, I wouldn't say they are going to change the tyre world with a cheap performance tyre but I would say paired with coilovers its a very good cheap combo, I recently did a video and I did a bit of b road driving, to say I took some tightish corners at the national speed which shows I have the confidence in these tyres, there was a little bit of understeer but nothing crazy and you could hear struggling at some points but for the price what can you expect. in the wet I don't drive like I normal do, I don't have the faith in the wet, might be personal preference. I have had no problems with wear so cant comment on that, the tyres are comfortable but im on coilovers and very low so doesn't help
