Those tires kick ass. I had a set on my mustang and loved them.

My Mazda came with brand new Yokohama's 225/45/18. So far so good.

Just dropped off my 2006 speed6 to have new tires put on - 225/40ZR-18 Kumho Ecsta MX. Should be a HUGE difference in handling with a 4-wheel alignment, compared to the OEM Dunlops I had on there (with the bald rears).

Edit: what a rip off! charged me $85 for the alignment and $25 *per tire* for labor. Pigfuc*ers. Harding Tire in Worcester MA for anyone interested.

bought my Yokohama YK 520's 225.40.18 94H from discount tire, 60k mileage, and they offer lifetime spin balance rotations, free flat repairs, air checks, free pro-rated road hazard, and the only 100% road hazard that i know of! Great service and they're fast too!

I'm looking at these tires as well. Is your 6 lowered? And what offset are you rims? I want something in 18" that will fit on 1" lowered back and need not to roll the fenders.

Sumitomo HTR ZIII 235/40/18 on RX8's.

The MS6 should have come with this setup from the factory. The grip is a huge improvement over stock.

I have RX8 wheels, so they are +50 offset. I have H&R springs, but they aren't installed yet and they do rub when the trunk is full of luggage. I will be rolling the fenders in the next week or two. The tires are new, but they are pretty amazing in the wet.
