245/40ZR18 Dunlop SP Sport 5000 DSST's on RX-8s, minimal fender roll, absolutely no rub.
I have a 2004 Mazda 6s Sedan, with the 6 cylinder engine. I am looking for replacement tires for my vehicle. The originals were the Michelin Pilot HX MXM4 size 215/50R17/93V;
My current tires are Bridgestone Turanza LS-V size 215/50R17/95V-. I need to replace within the next couple of weeks. I was looking at the new
Continental Extreme Contact DWS --in size 215/50R17/95V or 95Z, -, MIchelin Primacy MXM4 size 215/50R17XL 93V BSW; yokohama S. Drive--215/50R-17 95W XL B;--Toyo PROXES- 215/50ZR17 95W (from what I've read I need a tire with a load rating of at least 93 and speed rating has to be V or Higher.) I'm looking for all season tires. I'm looking for a tire that handles well, and can provide decent winter traction as I live in Michigan! Which is a good tire that other people have put on their Mazda 6S's or another comparable tire that can be reccommended? Please help
Got a close up picture of these on your car???i put a set of 215/50/17 yokohama avid envigors on my 2004 mazda 6 sport wagon. they were a little hard for the first couple hundred miles but after about 350 miles they were extremely smooth and quiet. they have great grip and wonderful wet traction. i love them after about 1,000 miles. i hope they are this good for a while. with a 60,000 treadlife warranty we'll see. i got a great deal at a new tire shop in town: $549 installed and out the door.
You'll get exactly what you want, and they handle great. In the rain, there's nothing like them, too. I love my DW tires in the summer. I have the stock size, though.On order right now are Continental Extreme Contacts DW 225/45/17 for my OZ Record Racing Rims. I ran Toyo Proxies 4 my last 2 sets but am looking for a more soft and quiet ride.
Im pretty excited about the Conti DWS as well. I have been stalking tirerack looking at reviews, surveys, and test results for a couple weeks. My car pulls to the right and even though I took the TSB to the dealer and tire discounters everyone is telling me I have tire pull. So I ordered those Conti's from tirerack they are actually shipping out today. After all the reviews, I was looking at the Yoko Avid Envigor and the Conti Extreme contact DWS. I don't drive my car really hard so I opted for the Conti as they seem to give slightly better wet tracking and quite a bit better snow traction over the envigor which gives better dry traction. Everything else being very close, I dont really care but the Conti's are also only 21lbs stock size and the Yoko's are 25lbs stock size. I am sure either tire would work for me but as a daily driver and in Ohio, we do get snow from time to time and I would rather make sure I can control my car in wet and snow than be able to drive harder when its dry as again I don't usually do often anyway.You'll get exactly what you want, and they handle great.
