    I'm really waiting for serenity plus to be 3 for 4.

    For a Mazda 3 so want the quietest tyres I can get. Are Ecopia EP300s as quiet?

    •  

      But are you tired of waiting?

      My suggestion is don’t go for ecopia if you like serenity plus. I had ecopia in my car and it’s not as good as serenity plus.

      Are Ecopia EP300s as quiet?

      Don't worry about the noise, I would prefer a noisier and safer tyre.

      The Ecopia EP300 is engineered for superior performance, giving you better safety and increased savings.

      No it isn't

      Using low rolling resistance technology to

      Low rolling resistance means it has less grip.
      Less grip means you have reduced braking performance so you take further to brake.

      I would prefer to use sightly more fuel knowing that I can stop in an emergency if needed

      Ive got a 2019 mazda 3 and have had the ecopias fitted for a couple of weeks now. They are a little quieter than the Turanzas that came stock on the car particularly on concrete/coarse chip roads. Fuel economy was a little better (6.0L/100km) but i've been doing shorter trips and pushing the accelerator a bit more lately which has pushed the avg back up to the 6.2L/100km i was getting on the turanzas

      time will tell though on the performance, I never found the stock tyres that amazing anyway. I don't really demand a huge amount of performance but seems fine so far, haven't driven in torrential rain yet though.

      Serenity Plus 3 for 4 deal will no longer be coming back. $100 off when you buy 4 tyres is your best bet when that offer comes around.

    I got this deal last week and put the ecopias on my triton. Much quieter than the duellers I had on there.

  •  

    Might try these.

    Edit: nope. Doesn't look like they're suitable. Guess I'll stick with continental.

    People bag them here a lot but Kumhos are great tyres

    •  

      Who bags Kumho?

      •  

        Have a look at previous deals, it's mostly negative comments

    •  

      I agree. I had Kumho factory fitted tyres for my Santa Fe replaced after 100,000 KMs. No way it's bad or even worse than other reputable brands

    How does Bridgestone compare to Michelin Primacy 4?

    Looking at the previous listings for these tyres on here, others have said they're not very safe on wet roads. Anyone care to share their experience with these Ecopias?

    • +3 votes

      I love these tyres and find wet and dry to be indistinguishable. Grippy and stable with good feedback in the wet

      Only complaint I have is they seem to be prone to punctures. Lately taken to ordering a heavier weight-class and that should solve the prob (about a $10 difference)

    •  

      others have said they're not very safe on wet roads.

      They are a low rolling resistance tyre so will have reduced grip all the time

      •  

        While that's probably theoretically correct I'd be interested to see how it shakes out comparatively in real world conditions.

        I don't drive like I'm on the track but spend a lot of time on the road in all conditions and have never felt any reason not to be completely confident in both handling and braking. Only one occasion braking hard have they made any kind of sound of protest and that was minor.

        Tram tracks in the wet grips like regular bitumen.

        I guess if you drive like you're on the track in a big sedan you might experience them differently.

      I've had them on a Corolla, and they kept slipping on wet roads. Couldn't wait to get rid of them. Wasn't heavy footed either.

      •  

        Do you do your own pressures?

      •  

        @Sildosaggins I've had the exact same issue. I've tried eco tyres from Michelin with similar results.

        It's just such a shame the really good tyres, Turanza etc are so much more expensive.

    Most tyres are much cheaper at Tempe Tyres if you are in Sydney.

    •  

      The price difference alone is enough to equal the buy 3 get 1 deals. You deserve a medal for this find!

    Do we buy things and bring to a shop to change? How much to pay for labour and machine?

      If a tyre deal doesn't include fitting/balance/disposal then it's not much of a deal

      •  

        Is wheel balance normally complimentary when buying tyres? I was charged with the fee all the time.

        • +1 vote

          In my experience it should be. I’ve never been charged.

          I’ve never been charged.

          If you get hit with an extra fee they either thieves or they think you can afford it (exey import)

    I've had Eco tyres before and they aren't very good. Both Ecopia from Bridgestone and XM2 from Michelin.

    Cons: Poor road noise, poor grip, very bad wet weather grip and stopping distance compared to touring tyres from the Same brand.
    Pros: I did get about 10km further on a tank and the tyres lasted ~40,000KMs

    I wish they had this deal for Turanza.

    I have been very impressed with the tyres that came with my Kia Sportage 2014 Platinum. I have not had to replace them til now, 107,000km!

            @Stevesie76: Hankook Optimo. They are the tyres that came with the car. I am very surprised they have lasted so long

            •  

              @FrankTT: I got same use out of factory tyres on a Corolla from the 90s. got 120k on them.

    •  

      You need to replace them before the canvas is visible

      •  

        I have my tyres checked when I get my scheduled car service, Kia have always told tyres are fine. On my last service about a month ago they said it's time to get new ones in a few months time

        •  

          I think it would be better if you checked your tyres yourself. Maybe every second or 3rd fuel up when you check tyre pressures have a glance over.
          If your alignment or something goes out then your tyre could be ruined or unroadworthy before your service.

    I had Ecopia EP300 and went over to Serenity Plus. Mush prefer Serenity Plus. Haven't worn out the serenity Plus yet but it is looking to be double the distance.

    I have Ecopia EP300's on my i30. I find them very quiet, and with excellent grip.

    $300 for a tyre is a good deal?

    • +2 votes

      It's jacked up in price which is why you get the 4th one free, which is the normal deal. So they turn out to be about $250 a tyre.

  •  

    I got Ecopia EP300 for about $150 each which I am finding to be great and also cheaper than the deal above!
