Joined to help my son choose new tires

Hi Everyone,
My son needs new tires for his Mazda3 and I thought I'd ask for advice on here.

Welcome.

Unfortunately there aren't many members here from Europe much less the Czech Republic; as such, most of us have no way of knowing what types of tires are available in your area.

I ran ultra cheap Chinese tires for a long time. If I got a whole year out of one, it was a miracle. I bought a set of Pirelli P7's that were on sale, and holy cow they rode and handled so much better. But still, just under 2 years later, time for new tires. Finally broke down and bought a set of Michelins. Expensive, yes. Worth it, oh HELL yes. They ride and handle just as well as the Pirelli's, but here 2 years later, they still look terrific. I know I'll wind up getting about 4 years out of this set. Just bite the bullet, and buy Michelins. They're expensive up front, but they last twice as long as other "premium" brands.

Hmmm, then something was wrong with the P7s you had, they will last longer than virtually any Michelin tire made, with the possible exception of the Defender model (which doesn't fit on many cars). I had Michelin MXV4 Primacy tires on my Accord, they lasted 60,000 miles; I have nearly 30,000 miles on a set of P7s on my TL and they still look new; the betting is the P7s easily last over 60,000 miles as well.
