Hello, I need recommendations for a good summer/performance tire that is not expensive and fits stock 16 inch rims, 205/60R16.
I'm in Canada and have dedicated winter tires on another set of rims so that's not a problem. If there are no performance tires that fit OEM rims, maybe you can recommend all-season performance oriented tire? Current tires are still the original Ecopias.
I found one that looks interesting, it's Pirelli PZero Corsa Asimmetrico 2 on Canadian Tire website, but it seems they are always out of stock. Here is a link: Pirelli
What are your thoughts on those?

Thanks for the suggestion. I live in Regina, SK but that site you provided gave me some ideas. Didn't see the Hankook Ventus V12 you mentioned though, maybe they don't have it.

Hi Joe, I think there is one small difference between the 16" tires on your car compared to my 2014. Your tire size is probably 205/55R16, mine is 205/60R16. And apparently that size is not common for summer tires. When I checked the Ventus S1 evo3 (K127) on that site, they have 205/55 but not 205/60. I don't know why it's like that, why Mazda had to change the size a bit.
