The Ecsta MX is a fairly popular tire on the Miata, about half a notch below the level of the Azenis RT-615, Hankook RS-2, or Bridgestone RE-01R.

What's your intended application? Enthusiastic street, AutoX, track, etc?

I'm running them on my SAAB. Use is a mix between in-city commuting and moderately aggressive TX Hill Country driving. (It's still a family car vice a sports car...)

They handle and ride better than the Pirellis that were on the rims when I bought the car. Grip in the turns is firmer and they don't seem to take as long to warm up.

Too new to give feedback on wear rates.
