Do you have the manufacture date of the tires.
Where in S.E. Michigan are you.
I'm sorry, I do not know if they will fit a Speed3. 245 is pretty wide, I'd check a Mazda3 forum to see if anyone has tried it.
I do not know if manufacture date is stamped on the tire, but I can look. If I had to guess, I would say early part of last year. Please note that is a guess.
Honestly, I would not use these tires for autox. They'll work, but will not be as sticky as a Hoosier A6 or Kumho. They are closer to a Hoosier R6 in compound, which is firmer. I'm not sure if you could get enough heat in them on autocross runs. They are monsters after a warmup lap on a track though!
If you are still interested, I am in Dearborn or Rochester Hills.
