It appears that although there are instances in the U.S, Canada and Mainland Europe. The problem seems to be mainly UK based.
Thankfully at least my dealer has contacted all its customers to inform them to check their tyres for wear, after I saw an old chap out in a 1yr old car blissfully unaware that all 4 tyres were worn through on the inside edge......

I think the Mazda Corporation owe all of its Mazda 5 customers the duty of care to at least bring the problem to their attention, so they can keep an eye out for excessive wear.

Hi, I've just found this forum mentioned on the Honest John website. How are you lot getting on with the tyre wear problems? I'm surprised to see no further posts since February.
I've had no luck whatsoever getting a satisfactory response from Mazda UK. My front tyres both have a smooth narrow band around the inside edge and are being replaced tomorrow with 41% of the cost being met by Mazda, at 12,500 miles.

I'd be pleased to hear from anyone out there who has had an admittance from Mazda that there IS a problem with front tyre wear. Anyone?Huh?.....

Dave.

My car has just had new tyres all round @ 20000 miles. This is the third full set on a car less than 3 years old....
Let's hope that the adjustments to the geometry sort the problem!!!

http://www.mazdaforum.com/m_39069/mpage_1/key_/tm.htm#47913

That this is common? problem although Mazda UK don't recognise it. I will be off Monday to get new and will be straight round to the dealer. I don't know what the dealer will do / say. Did you have any luck. Is there any advice from anybody on the way ahead?

Get down to your dealer and get them to replace them. You are more likely to get MMUK to refund some of the replacement cost. If your local tyre place replace them it is your word against the might of MMUK. You end up footing them bill.
Tell your dealer to speak to Jon Smith @ MMUK 01322 622 750 He knows all about the problem and WILL do something about it.


Good luck and let us know how you get on

Thanks for the info. So I should get down to the dealer and not getb the tyres done tomorrow? I'll nip down Monday and see what they say. I'll use the MMUK contact Jon Smith, (very common name) and see what they say. Doesn't bode well for the future though does it. £250 every 10000 miles. hmmmmm not good value for money. Is there a solution?

MMUK claim that;
Dunlop have changed the manufacture of the SP 2050's to prevent the wear. (Total tosh according to Dunlop. Also Avon tyres wore in the same way on my car when they were fitted)
MMUK claim to have worked out how to realign the geometry of the wheels properly to make the tyres sit flat on the ground, therefore eliminating the wear problem. (Only time will tell).

You can contact Jon via his email which is jsmit721@mazdaeurope.com
The more people who start moaning at him directly the sooner MMUK will publicly acknowledge the problem and make owners aware of this potentially dangerous problem.

Good luck

Well, so far so good. Laughing Contacted Jon Smith this morning by phone at MMUK and although he didn't admit there was a problem he sort of acknowledged it. We phoned him first so that we did the right thing and there was no question of the tyre wear if we had gone elsewhere and had them replaced. Jon contacted Mazda European ssstance who came and collected the car and took it o the dealership. In the mean time we phoned the deale who although not admitting there is a problem admitted that he had 2 other 5s with similar problem lthough he said usually rear tyre wear and mie is front. Anyway Mazda european assistance have a coutesy car in the services so we have a loan car and are now waiting for the dealer to let us know what is next. Razz They have checked the geometary but not told us the outcome yet. We did find out that at the service at 8400 miles the tyres were already worn to illegal level and I should havebeen told then. the dealer didn't tell m only that I had uneven wear and should keep an eye on the pressure. I've done 3000 miles on illegal and dangerous tyres with the famly onboard! Evil or Very Mad Needless to say i'm not happy. However I will await the return of the 5 and see how much Mazda will stump up for tyres and if there is a solution to the problem and keep you informed. I want to work with MMUK to get the problem sorted and not have premature tyre wear and rubbish resale value.

Good on you.
I agree with you MMUK simply need to acknowledge the problem and tell people.
Then they need to sort it out.

I suggest that you keep a close eye on the wear of all the tyres. Also keep a close eye on the tyre pressures. 32psi all round is reccomended unless heavily loaded.


Hi all,

I am a newer for this forum. I just put my deposit on a new Mazda 5 Sport TD and suppose to pick the car in 2 weeks. Thinking about the tyres problem, do u think i should cancel my order.... really hit me hard this time. What is the best thing i should do. Shocked

Best regards,

Frederick

Hi nearly all tyre fitter places will do a full geometry check for free and only charge if adjustments need doing

Posting to this thread. Here in the US, folks are complaining about the fast and abnormal wear on the 2006 Mazda 5. I just looked at one tonight and asked the owner.. and he said "Yeah, I go through a lot of tires."

Spoke to another... He says the fix is to install a Camber Correction kit that is offered on the Mazda3 when you do extreme lowering.

Apparently, that kit corrects the geometry... follow the installation with a good alignment and tire life improves.

I'm going to research this further.
