Passenger All-Season tires are for drivers who want a combination of a smooth ride, good wear and S- or T-speed rated durability along with all-season traction, including in light snow. Passenger All-Season tires branded with the M+S symbol are often used as Original Equipment (O.E.) on standard coupes, sedans and family vans, as well as some entry-level pickup, crossover and sport utility vehicles.

O.E. Passenger All-Season tires are typically purchased as direct replacements for worn-out pairs/sets of the vehicle’s original tires. They can also be used for other vehicle applications in complete sets of four or axle pairs if available in an appropriate size, load range and speed rating to match the existing O.E. tires’ performance category and specifications.

  1. I purchased my ’14 Mazda 3 strictly as a commuter vehicle after taking employment 76 miles from my residence. I am extremely pleased with this vehicle’s overall handling and ride performance. I cannot say enough about the OE tires, Yokohama AVID S34FV, on my Mazda 3. I write this review, as a testament to the unexpected and exceptional tread wear I have experienced, with only 1 puncture, repaired, and still rolling. I properly maintain the air pressure in these tires, rotated twice and have also managed an incredible 36.7 MPG average,on 87 octane fuel, since purchasing this great little car. I am definitely going to purchase another set of Yokohama AVID S34FVs, with the same expectation.

  2. These are terrible tires. You will have to yell for anyone else in the car to hear you going over rough pavement. Traction in the wet is laughable. Quarter throttle in first gear and the wheels are spinning. That is in a 150 horsepower car. The worst part about them is that I’ve had three punctures in a year. Not sure if I’m just unlucky or the tires are weak but that is unacceptable to me. Another case of an OEM using a worthless tire to help lower the MSRP of the vehicle.

  3. After 66k miles on the OEM set of tires, I have to say I have been pleasantly satisfied with these tires. My overall complaint with them is the noise factor as others have stated. MPG results are great given that this Mazda has excellent mileage (39.9=summer, 37.9=winter, mostly highway). I did not expect them to perform or last as well as they did over the 2+ years so, I definitely got my money’s worth out of them.I will be trying something different mainly because of the noise level and harshness on bumps, plus the price is very close to a 700AA grade tire. My picks for replacement are the Pirelli Cinturato P7 or Continental Pure Contact. In another two years I will rate my pick against the OEM’s.If you do mostly highway miles then these tires will last better than the 320 UTQG rating I believe.
