you got 50k out of oem tires from mazda? wow my dad's 14 6 has under 40k and his dunlops are almost bald!
I did! They're still just fine on treads outside of cupping on the outside of one tire. I'm pretty sure that's a result of my alignment woes post track-day, and driving the 1700 miles home at 80 mph.

These tires have a few autox's on them as well. The vast majority of my driving is highway, mind you.

Also, the 3's base tires are 600 tread-wear. I'm not sure about the 6's, but I know the 19" wheel option is a softer compound. My dad's '16 6 GT tires didn't last more than 40k.

yeah he had the touring with 19"ers and i think the treadwear was like 400 the thinner sidewalls on the 19" tires dont help either considering his tread started out with less depth

Backjoy device helps?

Try Backjoy.

So does this device actually help? For me, I find these add-ons take up too much room pushing my torso forward closer to the steering wheel and totally messes up my seating position.

I have not found a position in this car where I can sit comfortably.

It has worked for me.

This is actually a "seat", not a lumbar support. I have issues with the total lack of lumbar support in my leather seat. How does it help you? I already have limited headroom in the car with the seat at its lowest height possible.

Are the cloth seats more comfortable?

Installed a James Barone Racing weighted cylindrical shift knob in black with silver text to replace my broken stock shift knob - shifts significantly smoother now with the extra weight!
