Mazda 3 Series Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Toyo NanoEnergy R38 given 87% (205-60-16-)
Driving on a combination of roads for 16000 average miles
The tyres came fitted with the car and I like them. Good wet/dry braking and handling abilities well above average. The limits are set high, and they let know just before reaching them- especially on wet surface. Definitely one of the best mid range tyres I have ever used and punching above their price range. The front now is at 3 mm after almost 16k miles, so I would definitely buy again if available.

Writing about the Kumho Ecsta PS31 given 73% (215-45-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 10000 spirited miles
Pleasantly surprised with the PS31's overall performance in the dry, and superb grip in the wet. Even at 170kmh on the highway in the wet, the tyres still felt planted and hardly any noticeable aquaplaning sensation, impressive. Good road feedback and for the price paid, very good dry grip and value for money. The only complain is perhaps it wears out quicker than other brands in the same price range and UHP category. Would definitely recommend

Writing about the Kumho Sense KR26 given 13% (195-65-15-)
Driving on mostly town for 1234 spirited miles
Fitted to 2012 2L Auto Mazda3 when we bought it from Mazda dealer 2 months ago. About 3 years old and plenty of tread. Made in China. Hardly any grip in the dry and none in the wet. Thought there was something wrong with the car as it revved really high but all that disappeared when fitted with better tyres (Dunlop FM800).

Driving on a combination of roads for 16000 average miles
Good overall tire. The wet/dry grip is quite good and the tyre will let you know the limit. With my driving style I can't tell the difference from the previous premium brand I had except the price. I will definitely consider buying again.

Writing about the Bridgestone Turanza T005 given 88% (215-45-18-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 870 spirited miles
First off, my brand new Mazda 3 2019 came with Turanza 005a (after research I found out that these tyres are made for Singapore). The grip on these is absoluteley mindblowing. I tried disrupting the grip level at normal speed by entering corners and then pulling inside the corner to create discomfort in grip. Nothing happened. They remained glued to road. I cannot give any details on wear, as I'm currently 1400km in. The tyres came brand new on the car. Will definitely buy them again, and again.

Writing about the Bridgestone Turanza ER33 given 90% (225-45-17-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 55659 spirited miles
Completed 50,000kms in Mazda 3 Max Sport 2017, Auto, great handling car improved further with these tyres. Comfort is extremely good, no issue with either wet weather braking or handling unless you push the car beyond the prevailing road conditions.I live in Queensland Australia, semi-tropical region some 18okm's from Brisbane. Road surfaces off the freeways are course stone chip on bitumen, which results in a course ride, however, these tyres perform much better in terms of noise transmission and handling than the standard OE Dunlops fitted on our second car, a 2018 Corolla. Bridgestone have the knack in engineering a good product with great wear resistance, combined with above-average wet handling characteristics. I removed the road tyres off a new Hilux SR5 and replaced them with the Dualer 697's, they are the best value AT tyres on the market. I got 85,000Kms from these fitted on my Prado.

Writing about the GT Radial Champiro BAX 2 given 59% (205-55-16-)
Driving on mostly town for 22000 easy going miles
22000 klm of very easy running. Balanced and rotated at service. Very poor. Tyre Right Ulverstone said nothing they could do, not interested. I have never had a tyre wear out with such small kilometres.

Very good tyres. They give nothing compared to premium brands. Great dry and wet grip.

Writing about the Dunlop SportMaxx RT 2 given 60% (205-50-17-W)
Driving on a combination of roads for 20000 spirited miles
I bought these tyres last season and made about 20 000 kilometers with them. I expected a much higher performance, on wet surface are horrible. It's difficult even to start with them. During hot and dry wether these tyres are just above averege. I'm not buying this tyer again

Writing about the Toyo Proxes CF2 given 77% (205-60-16-V)
Driving on a combination of roads for 25000 spirited miles
25,000 miles (40,000km) on the front of a 150hp Mazda 3 diesel. Remarkably long lasting so good value.
The tyre is hard (squeals in hard cornering) and doesn't quite have the dry grip I'd like - way batter than some though. Wet grip is surprisingly good. I'd probably go for a premium brand but for mid range these are excellent.
