Worst tires I have ever had on a vehicle. Totally inappropriate for winter . Leased a new Mazda 3 in early November. When the snow hit in mid-December I went in the ditch twice within a week. Totally unable to be driven in snow. Far too risky. Dealer that leased me the car knew I would be driving it in snowy, hilly terrain and failed to warn me about these Ecopia tires. Had a Mazda 3 prior to this one and it was great in snow. That is one of the main reasons I decided to lease a new Mazda 3. My 2013 Mazda which I leased from a different dealer was equipped with all-weather tires and then CS5 Grand Touring Tires by Cooper. Never needed snow tires on the 2013. After six weeks of owning the 2018 model the dealer and Mazda USA said I would need to buy all new tires. Bridgestone Firestone has also admitted that these tires are not appropriate for winter driving. Why would Mazda USA be putting the Ecopia tire on a vehicle that was to be sold and driven in a cold snowy climate? I feel totally ripped off. So if you are thinking of getting a Mazda in a region where there is snow make sure it is not equipped with Ecopia tires. After this bad experience I will not ever lease or own another Mazda. Dealer and Mazda USA are too cheap to keep a driver of one of their vehicles safe in their travels on the road.
