What 17 INCH Tires are 3rd Gen Owners Running on Their Sport Models?

I would like any feedback from 3rd gen Mazda 6 Sport owners as to what 17 INCH tires they are using, and their satisfaction with them. I need new 225/55R17 tires, and was thinking of the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S ones until I found out they are single ply on the sidewall. I guess that is why some reviews talk about them leaning on hard corners. They also have 4 plies on the tread, compared to 5 for most performance tires.


Thanks for any insights you 3rd gen Sport owners can give me.

I have the OEM Yokohama Advan A83 tires... They telegraph coarse asphalt surfaces pretty considerably... i.e. they contribute a bunch of noise to the cabin. Not so pleased with them, in that regard.

Tickerguy has had good luck with Douglas Performance - same size, couple of load-indexes higher... and they are from Walmart.

Not a 3rd gen or a 17", but I put a set of these in 18" flavor on my 2004:


CHAMPIRO UHP1 - GT Radial USA


They have worn excellent over the last 35K KM and are quite sticky in the corners. I have had 0 issues and they handle noise very well, Transitions on/off concrete at 60mph are just more than audible. I would avoid the big brand names whenever possible, they are all pretty much pressed in China now. No sense in giving the big names extra money just for rebranding something cheaper.

2004 Mazda 6s 3.0 5dr. 5spd never ending money vacuum project:
CP-E headers w/catted mid + Magnaflow carback/AEM CAI/3.7L TB/Speed6 springs/RX-8 wheels
AWR 70D Enginemount/CP-E Dogbone/Custom urethane stock trans mount
Ralco shortshifter/Bose w/Auxmod/sharkfin antenna/lots of little things...

Thanks for any insights you 3rd gen Sport owners can give me.
The tire I saw online that was a single ply on the sidewall was a 16" tire. I called Yokohama, and they said the 225/55R17 has a two ply sidewall. Therefore, I am, once again, interested in the Yokohama Advan Sport A/S in a 225/55R17 for my 2014 Sport.
Are their any 3rd gen Sport owners running this tire, that can give me any feedback on it? Thanks.

I've had them on my 2015 6 sport with 6 speed
Grip is better than the Yoko Advans that came on the car,
worth a look

After Yokohama told me the 225/55/R17 had a two ply sidewall, I finally decided to order them from Discount Tire at a good price, and with a good rebate. When they came in, they only had a one ply sidewall, not the two ply, as Yokohama had told me, so I didn't take them. With all the large potholes everywhere, I wanted something with a two ply sidewall.


I also wanted something that would last for more miles(my Pirelli PZERO A/S + gave a little under 40,000, while rated at 50,000). I decided to try the Nokian Entyre 2.0, which not only has a two ply sidewall, but a load rating of XL, instead of the normal SL. The company is in Finland, and known primarily for their snow tires. They are getting ready to open a plant in Dayton Tennessee next year. These tires were made in their plant in Russia(I hope Congress doesn't investigate me). They are rated at 80,000 miles, and Consumer Reports estimated they should last 70,000 miles, so If I get 60,000, I will be happy.

Nokian snows are excellent. Got some factory-studded snows for Daughter No.2. Very gnarly! Likely good summers too. Said snows were mfr'd at one of Nokian Tyre's Russian satellite plants.
