Mazda 6 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Falken Azenis FK460 AS given 64% (225-45-19-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 26000 average miles
Extreme grip but were completely worn down at 26,000 miles. Very disappointed in this purchase. Additionally, Falkan requires tire rotations every 5,000-7,000 miles to satisfy their "Warranty" requirements. I will never buy this brand again.

A great all round tyre, comfortable, responsive and quite. Could not fault wet grip, not that I race, but for around town, instills confidence. Wear is acceptable - would recommend this tyre highly - and am buying my next set tomorrow.

Fit to replace old Kuhmo that lasted me 70K and expected much better for a premium brand. Cannot really fault on dry/wet but very not really forgiving on curve. - the real issue now : almost gone after 30K. .... Will buy Michelin next time- safer bet or Kuhmo again if finance don t allow it.

Writing about the Tracmax X Privilo TX3 given 81% (225-45-18-)
Driving on mostly motorways for 17000 average miles
I have driven 17,000 miles on these tyres in the last year and found them to be pretty good and came what looked like new on my car. I never measured the tread depth on purchase but are now down to 2mm so looking to replace in next few weeks now. I primarily use on the motorway run of 125 miles and then mix of dual carriageways, a small amount of urban driving in between. I have driven briskly in both the wet and dry around corners at legal speeds and not felt any slippage at all which surprised me these being budget brand tyres , Maybe its the dynamics of my car as known to be well setup as not had anything else to compare it with as yet. One thing that is positive reading other reviews in here is that they are reasonably well lasting as would not be at all happy if only lasting 6,000 miles

Driving on for 0 miles
Tyres had done less than 2000kms when purchased car with them. Have spun out when driving slowly in town had abs kicks in in the wet with only light application of brakes. Taking off from stand still is slow with the wheels spinning with minimal throttle

Driving on mostly motorways for 10000 spirited miles
The best tyre you can fit for a daily driver or for having fun at the weekends (or both!). Switched to these tyres after buying the car with Hankooks and the difference is huge. The car sticks to the road like glue in all conditions. Braking and cornering stability has noticeably improved. Comfort is pretty good, but you can feel that this tyre is sport orientated (slightly firmer sidewalls) but i never experienced this tyre as uncomfortable. Very low noise levels aswell which i find very important. This tyre is also very good in wet conditions. Aquaplaning restistance is superb and so is the grip when cornering/braking when the road is wet. Another thing worth mentioning is that the previous Hankook tyres suffered from extreme tramlining (the car was constantly weaving left to right at highway speeds, needing constant steering corrections). This is not at all the case with these Goodyears, the tyre is very stable at higher speeds and doesn't suffer from a 'floating' feeling. Can't really comment on rolling resistance, i didn't notice any difference in fuel consumption or when coasting. Wear rate is avarage but that depends on driving style ofcourse. I have sold the car but i did about 10.000kms on these tyres (mostly motorway, but with hard driving in corners and on- and off-ramps.) They only had 6.7mm new and were at 5.4mm when i sold the car last week. So wear is not to bad if you do mostly motorway driving. The slightly higher wear is compensated by the very decent price on these tyres considering how good they are! These tyres were also 22£ per tyre cheaper than the Michelin Pilot Sport 4 and with the performance that these Goodyears deliver, i can't find any reason why you would buy the more expensive Michelin. Well done Goodyear for making a tyre that actually works perfect in all driving conditions and that puts a smile on your face! Will happily buy again for any of my future cars. (have now bought a minivan and this tyre doesn't exist in my tyre size.)

Driving on a combination of roads for 65 average miles
I have been using Bridgestone Potenza giii for several years, in Mazda 6 the duration is optimal, very efficient in wet and dry braking.

Writing about the Nokian Hakkapeliitta R3 given 83% (195-65-15-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 12000 easy going miles
I've driven these tyres for two winters now and encountered various road conditions. The main focus is deep winter conditions - great performance on snow and ice, but comparatively worse performance in dry and rain. The road feel isn't very sharp on dry asphalt, feels a bit like a boat, but on snow you can read them really well. The behaviour of the tyres is very predictable, you can tell when they're about to slip and how much they're slipping very easily. Slides have been very easy to control or avoid.
They are quiet, and make a slight wind howling sound. Speed bumps and potholes are very squishy and only slightly annoying, smaller road bumps are completely absorbed. After 20000km, I still have 6-7mm of thread left. The rubber is very soft though, so with fast accelerations and speeds they might wear a lot quicker. The tyres feel confident at cold degrees, but warmer than 7 degrees Celsius they feel very spongy.
Performance on various winter road conditions:
1) dry: good grip, but "swimming around" like a boat, the feel isn't very sharp. Above 100 km/h the tyres feel twitchy.
2) fresh powder snow: controllable, decent grip and good braking distance, but sometimes can understeer.
3) deeply packed snow: great grip and sharp steering, good braking distance. The tyres seem to easily grab onto the snow.
4) rain: longer brake distance than many other tyres, still decent grip but not what you might be used to.
5) snow slush, salted roads: better than in rain, digs deep into the slush and grabs fairly well. Some controllable slipping, but decent braking distance.
6) regular ice: the tyres grip ice quite well. moderate braking distance and grip, although longer than on snow. Slides in hard icy corners.
7) black ice: strictly dangerous, since the ice is glass-smooth and the tyres have nothing to grab onto. ABS kicked in even braking from 5 km/h and braking distance was several meters. Steering is hard. Only nail-tyres would help here.

In conclusion, these tyres shine in deep winter conditions, but aren't meant for rainy winters. Grip on various snow surfaces is great and good even on ice. They are very predictable, which makes it easy to correct slides. The tyres are comfortable and quiet, and the wear is good.
