  2. Bridgestone Ecopia EP442 Plus

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Just a discussion on this tire :) This is the tire that can be found on the i (2.0L) Mazda3s. I've noticed that tread wear is very good. I have about 26K miles on them and they look like they could easily go for double that. Handling is average but I don't expect anything spectacular out of an...
  3. Short review of Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus 205/55R16

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I put new set of Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus after I got screws on two tires' sidewall on the OEM tires. Positives: ( compared to OEM ) - quieter ride: not as much whining noise on concrete highway. The OEM tires would scream where as Serenity seems to to drown the noise well. - softer...

  5. Which 2014 models has the Bridgestone ECOPIA EP44 PLUS ? Better than Yokohama's ?

    2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    My Sport Hatchback with 6-Speed manual came with Yokohama's. The car has really smooth ride and have no issues at all. No issues at even in the last harsh Indiana winter and they seems to be just fine in summer traction. It seems that some models came with Bridgestone's as well. Which models...

  7. Confirmed puny wet traction on stock Bridgestone Turanza EL-400

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Although it wasn't a surprise from reading various posts in this forum, I found out today how puny wet traction is (and probably non-existent snow traction) on stock tires. The road was slightly wet from over-night rain.. I was doing about 25 - 30 mph on a slow curve when I felt the front...

  9. Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus Review

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Well, I went and bought these tires today. They are installed now and I guess I will update my review slowly. 11/20/12 I bought the Bridgestone Turanza Serenity Plus tires today in the size 205/50/17 from my local Firestone. They were $680 for balancing, taxes, new valve, recycling crap, etc...
  10. Bridgestone Turanza EL-400 - Worst Tire Ever?

    2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I would say these are the worst tire ever, or at least the worst I have experienced on a vehicle. These come stock on the new Skyactiv 3 and I believe also on the base model and sport trim (any of which have 16" rims). Other than horsing around taking corners at intersections with a little...
