Mazda MX 5 1.5 2015 Tyre Review Highlights

Writing about the Yokohama Advan Sport V105 given 87% (195-50-16-)
Driving on mostly country roads for 23000 spirited miles
These tyres were supplied as OE for the Mazda MX-5 ND 1.5. They still have 3mm tread at 23,000m, wear has been equalised by occasional rotation. They seem to be optimal for the MX-5 with great dry balance and plenty of dry grip. What the absolute performance is in the wet I couldn't say, it's a summer car and I always drive to poor conditions, but I have never had any surprises on wet roads.

Steering and turn in are consistent and sharp, I really like the feel and have loved driving the car for the last 6 years. This might be the best tyre for this car, certainly for fair weather use. The sidewalls are very stiff which presumably accounts for the agile feel of the steering. There are few 'sporty' tyres available in this size and rather than go for a premium touring tyre from Goodyear/Michelin/Continental, which might perform better on measurements overall, I have chosen to fit the same tyres again.

Subjectively the tyres are quite noisy, and ride at low speed can be jiggly - not important for me in this application. I'm glad they are still available. The V105 has reportedly been replaced by the V107 but that does not seem to be available in 196/50R6.
