The tires are brand new Dunlop summers 225/45/17, I've been meaning to upgrade from my 2012 SE's lowly steelies and hubcaps for a while!
I've owned these Dunlop SP Sports on my Mazdaspeed3 and can say they were loud on the road compared to our stock Continentals. I've also heard they don't last very long (20-25k miles from other owners). I punctured one of mine while on the highway, 3 months after I bought the car and it costed me $250 for the replacement
. However, they do have great traction and are more stiff than our Conti's, which will help you carve those corners
