Transformation in the Tires
By Manny on


2010 Mazda MX-5 Miata Touring 2dr Convertible w/Power Hard Top (2.0L 4cyl 6A)


Most of the reviews cover the important tech issues. I love my car but from day one I assumed that the rough and relatively noisy ride was related to the "sport type tuning" of the car's suspension - and I would just have to live with it. How wrong I was. This was the only thing about the car I did not truly enjoy - it was very noisy - road noise that was magnified by any road imperfections. Living in NY, I knew I had to replace the stock 17" Summer Tires (potenza) with an all weather tire. This weekend (October 2010) I put on a set of Conti Extreme Contact DSW and wow, what a difference. The car was transformed - it is now composed and a pleasure at any speed and road surface.

Best Features

Fun to drive (nimble and and a pleasure to look at).

Worst Features

My car was NOISY - it was the tires but I didn't realize that until I changed them. Change them and then really enjoy your ride. Unless you're racing the car, get something quieter and more relaxing. It's a great car.
