After 1000km on my car, those good year eagle touring feels horrible. Not sufficient grip, horrible road noise and pretty mediocre handling. Maybe I should go my old route and toss some PS4 on there, maybe P Zero or even INDY 500 on there. Anyone else have any complaints about their tires?

Hi. They're Goodyear's!! Fully agree! I wouldn't put Goodyear's on my tractor! I may be putting Micheln's on soon. (all my tires have been Michelin's) You can get a good Michelin for around $256 ($US). Compare to the cheap "Badyear's" (changed the name because every year is a BadYear with Goodyear tires.) What's on the 50 is around $206 or less. ($US) Yes, disappointed that Mazda would put these on what I believe to be a great car!!

The tire purchase and delivery was flawless, the recommended installer did a good job, but after only 9000 miles I entered the vehicle for an oil change and the technician recommended my tires needed replacement the measurement of the tread depth indicated 2/32 of an inch meaning replace as soon as possible I could not believe that the tire was completely worn less than 10,000 miles.

I ended up ordering a set of P Zero. About $300 USD each. Cheap tire but I know what I’m getting. I’m getting my money worth. Don’t understand why Mazda put cheap garbage good years on my car. Absolutely trash. Almost as bad as cheap Chinese trailer tires. The last 1000 miles has been horrible with those horrible good years. I wouldn’t even put good years on my worst enemy’s car.

On the PPT, Goodyear Eagle Touring 245/45R20. Pretty mediocre ratings online, including from Tirerack.com customers. I find them very noisy and a bit mushy, but was hoping I was still in the break-in period. Seems not from what you guys have posted. Indeed very strange for Mazda to use crappy tires on their vehicles, much less a brand new and important model. Perhaps it came down to availability, but who knows?

Here's the Tire Rack summary of customer ratings:

we are picking up our car in few months and I am thinking of switching to a set of Michelin Cross Climate 2. Not sure if the dealer would offer buying back the tires as an option.
