Just came home from Discount Tire after having a set of these installed. First set after the OEM Dunlops. I immediately noticed a smoother ride on the initial slower roads. I got out on the highway and noticed slightly more wind noise and engine noise because these tires are noticeably more quiet and smoother than the Dunlops. Took the car up to 85 mph on the highway and the car just felt better. So smooth and quiet. Needless to say I'm happy. I was going to buy a set of Michelin's but they are $50/tire more. I did check out reviews on-line for this tire specifically from Mazda6 owners and the reviews were very favorable as well.
