  1. 2014-2018 Mazda 3 Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    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...
  2. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    Hi, I purchased a set of conti DWS for my 3 about 3000 miles ago. Unbeknownst to me, Town Fair Tire mounted then backwards (outside facing in). I went back and had them fix that. But now I am wondering if they made another mistake... It looks to me like the tires should be unique depending...

    Just installed 4 DWS's. I like them so far. They seem to have more grip and are quieter than the Turanzas. My question is, will they lose grip suddenly? Or will you feel it pushing before they give out? I went around a 25 mph suggested turn at 40 and they gripped awesome. I was just worried they...
  4. Mazdaspeed 3 Parts - Buy / Sell
    Stock MS3 18" wheels Continental ExtremeContact DWS tires No TPMS I picked these up from another member a few months ago. They've been great but the wife and I are looking to put some money into another kayak and a roof rack, and we could use the money from these to make that happen. They only...
  5. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I'm on the verge of deciding to purchase a new set of wheels and tires. While I'm solid on getting Konig Daylite 17x7 (14.5 lbs per wheel!!!), I don't know which rubber to wrap them around with. I was leaning on Kumho Ecsta 4X since its price is more generous than DWS and it is ranked...

    got a pair of each 215/45/zr17 on craigslist for cheaaap, cant wait to put it on. i dont think I've seen folks post comments about GMAX...so one more you know! Since General Tires has been taken over by Continental, I'd like to think AS-03 as sister product of DWS as it has a bit of snow...
  7. 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...
  8. M3R Rides, Meets and Pics!
    Hi everyone! I'm excited to finally have something unique to show off here. By Monday morning I had collected most of the parts I wanted to make my 3 truly my own. On Monday evening I was able to show it all off - it was worth the wait! I expect this build to be pretty divisive, as I know the...
  9. 2010-2013 Mazda 3 & Skyactiv Wheels and Tires
    I got a set of these in 205/50/17 put on 3 days after I picked up my 11 hatch(worked out a deal with the dealer). So for 3 days I had the stock Yokos on. I can tell you there is way more squirm in the corners and I'm not liking it. The grip is there but the squirm is hard to get used to when...
  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...
