Toyo tyres have been selected by Mazda as the original equipment supplier for its new Mazda 3.
The car will become available across Europe from late spring and Mazda have announced that two different tyres will be fitted depending upon car specification.
Models with 16-inch wheels will be fitted with the Toyo J48C in size 205/55 R16 91V, whilst those with 17-inch wheels will come with Proxes R32 in size 205/50 R17 89W TL.
Both tyres complement the Mazda 3’s exhilarating driving dynamics with outstanding handling performance, says the Japanese tyre makers.
Toyo also points to the tyres low noise characteristics as a benefit to motorists wishing to enjoy the Mazda 3’s cabin atmosphere and audio system.
In addition, says Toyo, both models – and the J48C in particular – offer low rolling resistance.
Toyo state that: ‘Our aim, always, is to produce high quality tyres that offer you outstanding road-holding in the dry or wet, feel secure and stable in all conditions and at all speeds, make the minimum amount of noise and give you the maximum amount of life.’
