  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I'll need to replace the tires on my 2016 sTouring 5-door sometime this year. I think I've narrowed it down to the Michelin AS3+ and the Continental DWS06. From what I've read I'm pretty sure I would prefer the driving dynamics of the Michelin but comments about a dip in mpg (I've read from -2...

    Curious what other people run? Tire shop techs recommend the OEM PSI rating, it soakes up more bumps but feels less responsive. I asked them and they said they highly recommend not deviating because the center might wear faster due to overinflation. What do you guys think?

    Continental DWS 06 sizing question I read so many posts discussing the Continental Extreme Contact DWS 06. When I enter my car info on various websites, I'm told the tire isn't available for my particular vehicle. What's up with that, is it my wheel size, the car year, or something else...

    I am considering a set of Continental PureContacts for my 3. I would like to hear from folks that have experience with these tires, specifically: - is tread life consistent with the 70K miles rating? - how is performance in wet and snow, especially past 30K miles - noise of tires, especially...

    Hi Forum brothers, Just purchased my 2014 M3 sport not long ago, and can't wait to replace my stock 16" wheels and tires! After a bit of research and local store visit (Mississauga Ontario), I have basically had my eyes on a set of Enkei EMK3 18 inch black. Then I need to choose a set of...
  7. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hey all, I know this forum has been a long time fan of the Continental DWS's but I thought I would give the Continental PureContact line a go and see how they do. I have a stock 2011 2.5 3 hatch and just put these guys on yesterday after getting what I consider a respectable 32,000 miles out of...

  9. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Not that it needs saying, I just want to add my voice to the many already recommending the Continental DWS tires over the stock Yokohamas. At this point I have only put a few miles on them but the difference in the tires noise level was noticeable immediately, and that was my main gripe with the...
  10. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Last week I noticed my car was pulling really hard to the right. I didn't hit anything or do anything to cause the car to go out of alignment BUT I still took it to get one anyway. $93 later, I was told the car is still pulling hard to the right and the car is perfectly aligned. The front...
