I have always been upset that Mazda put V-rated Potenza 195/95/15 tires on my Protege LX sedan, rather that a tire more suited to the kind of driving most sedan buyers are going to do. Now Mr. Pasci comes right out and says that most people would be better satisfied with Turanza LS Touring tires rather than Potenza tires. Furthermore, he says the Turanza is made in the same speed ratings as the Potenza, is equally safe, provides a far less jolting ride and a far quieter ride! Also, he implies that the harder-riding Potenza is only meant for very sporting driving. Some time ago I asked Bridgestone why they had agreed with the V-rated Potenza for the Protege and their answer was that it was a Mazda decision, not a joint decision with Bridgestone. I feel it was a bad mistake! Just look at all the negative postings in this forum regarding the Potenza tires.
I love this car!!!!
but I still love my Protege too!
