This is a great purchase
I purchased these tyres last year, it was during a buy 4 get 1 tyre free promotion. After plenty of research I chose these tyres for the brand, high wet road safety rating and good reviews online.
It stands up to its promises and is the best decision I've made for my car, the ride feels more cushioned, the turns feel a lot more grounded and it does well when braking and in wet weather conditions as you can feel it's grip on the road.
good value for money
Bought this last year when bridgestone had a 4 for the price of 3 deal. Got bobjane tmart to pricematch the price from another local shop and they gave a further discount off the total price. worked out to just over $400 including alignment. They are very quiet compared to my old tyres and have excellent grip. Will see in a few years time how long they last.
Great grip and less road noise!
Got 4 for the price of 3 tyres. Excellent grip compared to my old hankook tyres. Much less road noise and an overall better ride compared to my old tyres. Grip is great in wet conditions. Seems to be saving me a bit of fuel which is a great bonus.
A fine budget set of tires.
Purchased a set of four of these tyres during a promotion of buy 3 get 1 free (25% off really...) in November of 2017.
Have done ~3500km since purchasing. Initially tire noise appeared to have decreased however it has either returned or levels have become normal. Mazda 3's are notoriously noisy so hard to tell.
It does however appear to have helped with fuel consumption. Prior to changing tires I averaged 9.6l/100km, and since I have averaged 8.4l/100km. The previous tires were some non series Bridgestone tires.
Would recommend these tires but they're definitely at their limits of grip in normal driving in the wet. Even in the dry, after having them on for ~3 months, they are not all that grippy.

Good Tyres with Amazing Price!
I've just purchased a set of these tyres a month ago when they have the 'buy 3 and get 1 free' discount. That's under $400 for a set of tyres. Incredibly reasonable price! Can't find any good tyres with this kind of brand and quality elsewhere.
The tyre itself is OK, the things I hope to get from it is good.
1. The tyre is soft and comfort, it is better than the previous set of Yokohama BluEarth E75, which would be more than $180 for just one tyre. Spending around $80 less and get more comfort, I'm really happy with it.
2. The noise level...is slighty worse than before. I know the E75 is a tyre which concentrate more on noise level, I can accept that. And the noise level of EP300 is not that bad either. For a normal tyre, the noise level of EP300 is already good enough and can be considered as a quiet tyre. 3. Bridgestone claims these tyres would improve your fuel efficiency, which it did so. My car can run a bit more kilometres between refilling petrol. But actually there's no huge difference. Maybe the old set of Yokohama is eco-friendly enough already? I don't know, but use less fuel is good in anyway. 4. The grip level is just OK level. I guess maybe that's because less friction for fuel saving? I felt I can speed up to the speed limit and start cruising earlier than before, but on the contrary, I have to brake harder and deeper to make it stop. The grip when cornering is good, it sticks to the ground well and never put me in danger. The grip in wet conditions is about same level with it when dry, but braking distance increases a bit. In short, these tyres are good in accelerating, cornering with normal speed and grip in wet conditions. But I really wish the brake distance could be improved a bit. Overall, if there's anyone who do not drives like an angry missile and wants to find a set of tyre which is affordable, but still have good quality, quiet and comfort. I would highly recommend this one. Spend less than $400 for a whole set, and the return is much better than you would expected.
Questions & Answers
I'm in the process of choosing new tyres for my Honda Accord 2008 model. Have heard good reports on the Ecopia, and not so good on the Kumho PS71, although a tyre guru highly recommended them. A friend of mine has recently bought Turanza. I'm finding it hard to choose. Any advice?
I drive a small car like yours, extensively, through city, country and interstate. Early last year I replaced a set of Ecopia which had done 78,000 km with a set of Turanza"s. The Ecopia set (I kept them) still have good tread. I only changed them when I did because we were about to embark on an interstate trip covering some fairly harsh roads. It seemed prudent to do so. The Turanzas have since done 55,000 km, including three interstate trips and, like the Ecopias, are wearing well. I would expect them to achieve between 80 and 90k. I can, therefore, recommend both Ecopia and Turanza for long wear, though my next set will likely be Turanza as I prefer it's tread pattern.
