Tires for Mazda MX-5 Club
7 months ago
Not my daily drive but still put lots of miles on the car year round (+2k month). Tires I have used on the car in past have been the stock Bridgestone S001 and BFG Comp-2 A/S. Selected this Nokian tire after price/performance comparisons and feel pretty good about my choice. Approaching 1k on new tires and can say without hesitation they handle just as well as the BFG's and are much quieter than the Bridgestone's. The Nokian's seem to deliver an assuring grip yet have a light feel/lowresistance when rolling along at highway speeds. No noticeable sidewall flex at sport-touring pace. Have not encountered wet-pavement conditions so cannot comment on that aspect of performance. Two thumbs up at this point! "Good" rating can move to "Excellent" depending on rain capabilities.

Finnish Quality, Exceptional Price

I bought four of these for my 2011 BMW 328i in 225 45 17. I replaced tires that cost considerably more and I must say I'm happier with the Nokian brand. Notably, the handling is superb and the noise minimal. I live in Portland, Oregon where it rains constantly and the roads are fairly poor. Despite these conditions, the Nokian tires are holding up well.
On a side note, this company needs to do a better job advertising the fact that these are designed and sold by a company in Finland. Most US consumers, like the Nokia mobile phones of old, confuse this brand with some generic Japanese company they've never heard of. If people were to understand this product comes from Scandinavia, sales would improve greatly here in the States.
