What tires are best for a 2012 Mazda 3? The following tire brands and types are a great fit for your Mazda 3.
Shopping for tires can be overwhelming, but not when you're equipped with the right information. That's why you should head our way when it's time to put new tires on your 2012 Mazda 3. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for Mazda 3 tires for winter, spring, summer, and fall. Whether you want a tire that's built to handle diverse terrain, improve fuel-efficiency, or take tight corners, you'll find good tires that match your budget.
View the recommended tires for your 2012 Mazda 3, plus useful info about Mazda 3 tire size, speed rating, and tire pressure. Take it from one of our tire technicians, Brianna: "You want to find the correct size for your tire. It matters in alignments and keeping your vehicle driving the way it’s supposed to.”
Other than getting the proper tire size, you also want to think about a couple of other things when getting new Mazda 3 tires like where and how you drive, and what tire brand you trust most. If you live in Florida, you probably won't want to buy studdable snow tires. Washington state or Montana is a different story, though. If you live in a state with some extreme seasonal shifts, you might want to switch between winter tires and all-season tires for the best performance.
Think about where you live (countryside vs. city vs. mountains) and the kind of unexpected weather you're likely to experience when evaluating your driving conditions. It's not uncommon for drivers in states that experience all four seasons to buy more than one set of tires. one for summer and one for winter. It's a smart way to capitalize on Mazda 3's performance and safety throughout the year. Other drivers prefer to purchase one all-season set to limit trips to the tire shop and make sure their vehicle is prepared in the rain, sleet, snow, or sun!
Next, consider your driving style. Do you like taking your Mazda 3 far away from civilization? Going where no vehicle has gone before? If you're a big off-roading fan you forges paths where others can't, you have very different needs than a long-distance commuter who sticks to the highway. You'll want a tire that can handle gravel, sand, stone, and dirt. You might want to look at bigger tires with stiffer sidewalls and wider tread patterns to help protect against punctures and maintain balance in irregular road conditions. But if you plan on sticking around town, a Mazda 3 tire that offers comfort, stability, and a quiet ride could be just what you need. Visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for help selecting the tire that's right for you, or get started by browsing tires that fit your vehicle. You're only a click or two away from a new set of 2012 Mazda 3 tires.
