View Full Version : Complete CX-5 Wheel Specs

Hello all. I have dug around and obtained some very useful info regarding all the wheel sizing issues for the CX-5. I have visited my local Toronto area Mazda Parts Department, where I purchased my wife's CX-5 and gotten all the crucial measurements folks will need when getting aftermarket wheels, specifically winter tire/wheel packages. My Mazda Parts guy looked up all the specs on his parts spec lists and I confirmed these specs with a third party, Kosei Wheels from Japan. Kosei makes the popular "Sport Edition" aftermarket wheels found at the TireRack.com and 1010Tires.com. Look up the Kosei "Grand Infest D5" wheels on the Kosei website, for example, and you will see that they are the exact same wheels as the Sport Edition D5 wheels, at the Tirerack.com website. If you go to the Kosei website "Wheel Fitment Guide" dropdown box at http://www.koseijp.co.jp/engfl/Wheel%20Fitment%20Guide/Kosei%20Fitment%20Guide.html , you can choose the Mazda CX-5 and see for yourselves what the specs are listed as.

According to the Mazda parts guy (and many online sources) most Mazda OEM wheels for most models are generally designed around a 5 x 114.3mm bolt pattern, and have a wheel hub center bore of 67.1mm.

The CX-5 has two wheel/tire sizes in North America: 225/55R19 tires on 19" x 7.0 " JJ wheels and 225/65R17 tires on 17" x 7.0" JJ wheels. Both wheels have offsets of 50mm (ET50), a bolt pattern of 5 x 114.3mm and have a wheel hub center bore of 67.1mm. Both wheel/tire combos are identical in width and have identical strut clearance and distance to the fenders. The overall circumference of both wheel/tire combos is almost identical with the 19" wheel/tire combo being a tiny bit larger, causing a speedometer variance of less than 0.8 km/h at 100 km/h. The only real difference is the height of the rubber sidewall, with the 19" wheel/ tire combo giving a more "full-looking" (and arguably, better-handling) wheel visual impression with less rubber height.

Since most aftermarket wheels have a larger wheel hub center bore of 73mm (including the aformentioned Kosei and Sport Edition wheels), you will need to purchase wheel hub centering rings to reduce the size of the aftermarket wheel hub center bore to fit the smaller Mazda CX-5 wheel hub of 67.1mm. Gorilla does not make 73mm to 67.1mm centering rings, but several other companies do, however, Gorilla does have 73mm to 67.06mm centering rings which will work just as well (keep in mind a 0.04mm difference is equivalent to 40% of the thickness of a single sheet of 20 lb copy paper!). I know the slightly different size works well because I have been using the 73-6706 Gorilla centering rings on my 2006 Mazda6 for 6 years and Mazda6 has the identical 67.1mm wheel hub center bore as the CX-5. The TireRack sent me the slightly smaller rings because they only use Gorilla centering rings, which just means the centering rings fit just a tiny bit tighter on the wheel hub.

For those people out there looking to get winter tire/wheel combos, I suggest getting the much cheaper to purchase 225/65R17 tires on 17" x 7" wheels, even for those who have original 19" wheels on their vehicle. The contact patch will not change (amount of rubber that actually connects to the road) and the ride will be arguably a bit more smooth, especially in the winter.

I am buying an aftermarket set of winter wheels/tires and had to be sure of what I was buying since no online tire retailers, including TireRack.com, have identified compatible wheels yet. I hope this info helped some others out there. Cheers!

In addition, many have asked about wheel spacers. There are two types: Version 1 which are simple spacers requiring longer studs be pressed in (not hard) or the Version 2 that are a bolt on style, with a pressed in set of new studs. (I haven't checked the Wheels yet to see if they are relieved on the rear to accept clearance for the stock studs which are longer than the typical spacer width). I've used both types on my 370Z with great success. Nice quality parts.

Search Hubcentric wheel spacers on the menu here: http://www.ichibausa.com/SearchResults.asp?Cat=53
The CX7 has the correct bolt circle and hubcentric specs for the CX5

Version 2 style:

Version 1 style (with longer studs pressed in):
http://images49.fotki.com/v1511/photos/5/7305/7484977/IMG_1910-vi.jpg

If you use the version 2 style, make sure the wheel has the appropriate space relief between the existing bolt holes:

Nice post. I'm sure by fall 2012 there will be plenty of choices.

I'd stay away from Sport Edition brand if possible. Price is good, but quality is not always.

skouly
03-30-2012, 03:32 PM
I agree, the Sport Edition wheel quality is very spotty. I have read horror stories about how the cheap cast wheels frequently crack. Despite that, however, they manufactured a wheel that had great reviews, and was incredibly lightweight to boot. It is the Sport Edition D5 I mentioned in my post above. I have driven my Mazda6 hard for 6 years, especially in the winter and my D5's look as good as new with minimal upkeep. The reason those wheels were so great was that, unlike typical cheap alloy wheels that are simply gravity cast wheels, the D5's were pressure cast and shot peened to create a uniform density in the wheel and remove air pockets/voids in the wheel structure. Unfortunately, the wheel has been discontinued, but the Tirerack still has some left in stock as a closeout, and 1010Tires.com and Tiretrends.com appear to still carry them for now. I decided to wait for the new Michelin X-ice xi-3's which come out this fall, as they look very promising, and at that time, if those D5's are still available, I'll probably buy them for my CX-5, otherwise, I'll buy affordable winter Enkei wheels at Tirerack because Enkei manufactures well-made wheels.

Great wheel specs listed up there, much appreciated.

For 19" or 20" custom wheel fans, the CX-5 is an interesting opportunity, especially when compared competing compact SUVs including CRV, new Escape, Sportage, Tiguan. The CX-5 has tallest/largest diameter tires at 28.74" for 19" wheel config, 55 series tires, plenty of sidewall.

First of all thanks for posting this information. It confirms what I had guessed, that Mazda is keeping things as consistent as possible with regards to bolt circle, offset and hub center bore.

Second, as you've already stated, any 17" wheel that fits a 3 or 5 series car should also fit the CX-5, therefore why not shop for winter wheels that way? And if anything, a narrower contact patch is preferred in winter driving. I haven't fully researched this but perhaps a 205/70 (-.8" in tread width) would be a better alternative, so long as the weight rating of the new tire matches or exceeds OE one should be good to go.

A question might be if 16" wheels would fit the brakes on a CX-5 for even further sidewall height and winter ride comfort?

Good post skouly!! Thanks again!!

bbrich57 I agree, you can use any size as long as you end up with a tire that is close to the diameter of the OEM and not two wide. Tire Rack list the diameter of the different tires in the specifications and the thing to match to is the number of revolutions per mile which for the stock 225/65/17 is listed as 729 rev/mile.

Hi Everyone,

New to this forum, just purchased a CX-5 and was looking at winter/wheel package, the dealer suggested a few size below and using a tire size chart comparison, I got the following results:

225/55 R19 Original Wheels
Revs per Mile: 723.7
Actual Speed: 60 mph 100 km/h

235/70 R16
Revs per Mile: 718.4
Speedometer1: 59.5 mph 99.2 km/h
Speedometer Difference: 0.737% too slow

225/65 R17
Revs per Mile: 729.5
Speedometer1: 60.4 mph 100. km/h
Speedometer Difference: 0.801% too fast

225/70 R16
Revs per Mile: 732.3
Speedometer1: 60.7 mph 101. km/h
Speedometer Difference: 1.188% too fast

My Question is anyone has tried 16" wheel on the CX-5 thus far for brake clearance?

Thanks

nizzy1115
05-17-2012, 11:07 AM
I'd imagine 16's would fit fine. There is clearance on the 17's so 16's should work. I doubt 15's would clear the brakes though.

05-17-2012, 11:41 AM
Can someone look at this 20" wheel and let me know if it would fit the CX-5? Can't get all of the measurements from the product page, but it looks like a sweet wheel!

The GX comes with 16" wheels with 225/70R16 tires and disks are the same size on all trims. I'm planning to go with that size for my winter tires. Not much change from the 225/65R17 I have on right now for speed/odometer readings

05-17-2012, 03:08 PM
Thanks Nizzy.. I knew it was too good to be true!

Ok so i went on tire rack and they are saying 16-20" rims will fit and some are up to 8.5" wide. I cant imagine they would fit without spacers and sticking out way farther than flush from the fenders though.

awmenard
05-17-2012, 04:13 PM
I spoke to a friend of mine who has a wheel shop and he did some calculations.

I was looking for 22's the widest rims with no spacer or clearance issue is 9.

Tire size was 255/40/22

This retains the same diameter as the 19's with tires.

Odometer will be off by less then 1%

Im currently looking to upgrade to 21's, might try to get some infiniti FX50 wheels.

I might go for a fitting session to see what 22's will look like and test the fitment.

I'll post my results once i get them

kampfire
05-17-2012, 04:18 PM
I'd imagine you can fit 9s with little effort. Getting a 9" width with et50 will put you out 25mm which would be just about flush. The only thing I'd be concerned with is clearance on the inside, (strut/wheel well/etc)

awmenard
05-18-2012, 03:09 PM
Ok just checked and Infiniti FX50 wheels are a no go, they are 9.5.

Will look for another option I guess

Are they same bolt pattern and cernter bore, or would machine working be necessary?

Bolt pattern is the same, as for center bore not sure but I saw a link in the forum for adjusters... Here is the link

http://www.wheelsrims.net/infiniti-fx50-inventory.html

Decent price as well, the whole set up would run about 1700$ with tires.

Not sure why you could fit these rims on a M35, and not a CUV?

Hi Scouly, hi all

Thanks for excellent info. I have just ordered my cx-5 and worried about the ride comfort of 19'' wheels as I have tested the 17'' version which was ok. Is the difference in confort very significant?
I will order a full set of 17'' anyway plus winter tires. The problem is the high price the Mazda dealer asks for.

bebelacus
05-28-2012, 07:14 AM
hello again

I would like to know if narrower tires (less than 225) can be fitted on the original 17'' rims the CX-5 comes with. And what will be the narrowest of all? I will keep the others unchanged, I mean it will be still 65.

cheers

skouly
06-01-2012, 10:28 AM
Hello Bebelacus. You can definitely use narrower tires on the same 17" rims, but your aspect ratio will have to change to keep the overall diameter similar. Also, you will have to keep in mind the load index or maximum load rating for the skinnier tire versus the stock tire will probably be lower. Once you find a tire you want, you can check that tire on the manufacturer's website to see what rim width range is specified and what the load rating is. Usually, 205 or 215 tires can be fitted to 6-7.5" rims. So, you could theoretically get a 205/70R17 or 215/70R17 tire to use on the stock 17" rim (since it is 7" wide) and they would probably fit, but there aren't a lot of choices in those sizes, perhaps only a handful. For example, the Blizzak DM-V1, a good winter tire, comes in 215/70R17, uses a 6.5-7.5" rim, but has a 100 Load index versus a 102 Load index for the stock 225/65R17 tire. Technically, you can't load your CX-5 as much with cargo and people with a lower load index rating, but this only comes into play when you are loading the CX-5 to its absolute maximum weight/cargo capacity and at that point, the lower load index can potentially affect ride safety. However, if you are looking at skinnier tires for the winter, that is a good idea as skinnier tires cut through snow better, like a skinnier or sharper blade cuts better than a fatter or more dull blade.

kampfire (or anyone), so is the distance from inside the fender to the face of the wheel/tire 25mm? (i.e. how many mm's until the tire rubs the inside of fender?)
Also, is "et50" another way of stating the 50+ offset?

Thanks!

What I meant is that if you take the current stock wheel position and put 9" wide et50 wheels on the car, then it will stick out 25mm further than stock.

Hi guys,

I can buy almost new set of Dunlop tyres + 17 " wheels for my Mazda CX5. The wheels fit but the tyre dimensions are 225/50, ET40. they were previously used on a Mazda RX8. Do you know if these tyres will fit on the Mazda CX5? Many thanks for your help.

da5id
10-22-2012, 02:40 PM
Optimus, they will fit, but your speedometer will be off since the sidewall of the tire will be shorter than the stock setup. Not sure what impact this would have on your car's ABS, Traction Control, or TPMS.

Optimus
10-22-2012, 02:53 PM
Thanks for the quick answer. This is a good point - I maybe have to ask Mazda.

According to http://www.paspeedo.com/calculator.htm (Speedometer calculator)

A 60MPH reading on your Speedo with the new tires will represent an Actual 54.408 Speed

60_______54.41
75_______68.01
80_______72.55

After 10,000 actual miles your odometer will read that you traveled 11,028

First of all, I would like to thanks OP for his incredible job digging that information for us!

Nonetheless, I have a question. I am looking for a winter tire & wheel package. I will probably go for a Michelin X-Ice Xi2 225/70-16. Here my two questions:

1- Should I go with narrower tire ? (such as 215 or 205)
2- If I stick with 225, should I get the 7" width wheel or the 6.5" will do just fine ?

Thank you

I'am going to put winter tyres on but 19" a too much here, So getting 17" tyres and wheels i can get 5 x 114.3 17 x8j with a ET45
I know it should ET50 but will the ET45 fit?

Thanks

bbrich57
11-07-2012, 07:50 PM
5mm is only about 1/8". I believe it should fit, though I will warn that the 1st gen 6 series ('03-'08) were very picky about wheel size. There wasn't much room to budge with that car, at least w/o rolling the fender lip first. But in the case of an SUV, I would make the educated guess that 5mm will make no difference.

CX-SV
11-07-2012, 08:02 PM
Agreed, since the extra 5mm of the ET45 will place wheel out (and the SUV fenders are very roomy as mentioned above), away from suspension and chassis. Although the 8" (versus standard 7") wheel width might be potential problem...

bbrich57
11-07-2012, 08:21 PM
I hadn't noticed that in your OP, but why would you go with WIDER wheels when switching to winter tires? Narrower and taller (tires) always work better in snow, certainly. It creates a longer, narrower tire patch as opposed to a wider one. So the tire will "cut through" the snow better rather than float over it. Floating is equivalent to hydroplaning. You lose control.

11-08-2012, 05:24 PM
yea was getting a good deal on the 8" they are a rota boost wheel would they still be alright?

bbrich57
11-08-2012, 08:38 PM
I don't know for sure, but I wouldn't go with a wider wheel for winter driving. Besides, the winter weather, snow, ice, road grime and salt would ruin them in short order.

The stock CX-5 17" wheels are about 20-21 lbs. each. I found some OZ Alleggerita HLT's under 15 lbs. each. It made the car feel slightly peppier. The only thing I don't like about them is the inside of the rim is level so they hold road sand in there.

Plenty of aftermarket wheels are heavier than the OEM wheels so be careful what you buy. The OEM 17" wheels are decent quality.

I just pulled off one of the OEM 19's with the OEM tire and weighed it on my digital bathroom scale. It fluctuated between 57.5 and 58 lbs.
I calibrated my scale with a couple of 20lbs dumbells and it was within .5lbs, so it's close.
Something else that was interesting, the Optional Wheel Lock lugs started to grab at approx 20 ft/lbs, so go torque them up. I have about 200 miles on my car.

Interesting. The OEM 17" wheels w/tires are only 49.4-49.6 lbs. That's a difference of 8 lbs. per wheel or 32 lbs. total which is significant since the extra weight has more rotational inertia as well as the normal inertia associated with carrying around extra weight. That's enough to affect fuel economy significantly even without considering the extra wheel weight is carried further from the axle centers which increases the rotational inertia more than the simple weight differences would indicate.

Haven't checked into it but would 17x7.5 with +55 offset and 225-65-17 tire fit good? I can't see such a small difference being an issue on a cuv. Correct me if I'm wrong

Hi all! My CX-5 come with tires size 225/65/17. Is it possible for me to replace it with size 235/65/17 so the tire will be wider. I need comment on this before I order the tires. Thanks!

No. The diameter will also be different and your speed and odometer will be off.

The nearest larger tire size that would match the diameter, would be 245/60/17. No idea if they would rub though.

In Australia we need to meet or exceed the load rating of the standard wheels in order for aftermarket wheels to be legal.

Does anybody know the load rating of the standard 17" steel wheels which are standard on the base model maxx here in Australia?

The wheels im looking at have a load rating of 735kg so i dont see any problems but would rather play it safe and check.

Just weigh OEM 17x7 wheels, all 4 of them, they all came in at 23 lbs each.

Just swapped them out with OZ 17x7.5, same scale, same floor OZ came in at 15lbs, I just hope these OZ can and will last, that is 8 lbs off each wheel, not bad.

In Australia we need to meet or exceed the load rating of the standard wheels in order for aftermarket wheels to be legal.

Does anybody know the load rating of the standard 17" steel wheels which are standard on the base model maxx here in Australia?

The wheels im looking at have a load rating of 735kg so i dont see any problems but would rather play it safe and check.

That is really difficult information to find. Two idle thoughts come to mind.

Write to Mazda corporate and see what answer you get, you might be sure to give them the part number of your wheel, which is likely stamped on the back of the wheel.
Remember your lug nut torque ratings when you remove your wheel to find the part number.

or

I wonder if you can interpolate based on the highest GAWR of the vehicle? In the US, the GAWR for the front and rear axles are printed on a label on the drivers door frame. I would guess you could take the highest rating, divide it in two to get a minimum wheel load rating, but I am guessing you would have to check that with local transportation authorities.

I think he is asking about the load carrying capacity of each wheel, rather than the weight of the wheel. I think it is really obtuse information, which I NEVER recall seeing on any manufacturer web sites, even expensive forged mono block pieces by BBS.

I'm also looking at the Load Rating issue,as over here we cannot fit "passenger load rated listed" wheels to SUV's ie. RX8/MX5.
Matlev- This site might help you,I come across these with the correct SUV load rating.
I just got to check the width for the CX5,I'm not sure if 8.5 is going to be too wide?

Hi! I'm a new member recently bought 2014 CX-5
I read your comments about wheel spacers.
Do you recommend style 1 or style 2 for the CX-5 and how wide?
I read some have gone as far as 25mm but that seems pretty wide and could cause TPMS issues?

On 16" Mazda3 wheels, they should unless the rotors are bigger on the 5. However, they are also liable to be too short for the CX-5. The overall circumference will be incorrect.

Hi guys!
Let me ask a question...

There are a lot of Japanese sites and not only Japanese have tables for specific wheels.
Well
In the 6th column is the so-called "hub clearance".
Can anybody post a link or image to see what is it?

Thanks in advance!

Guys! Need your opinions and comments...

In Russia there is a saying - Prepare sleighs in summer (Prepared for All Eventualities)
That's why I thought about buying new wheels with tires for next summer.

There are three options here.
How do you think which of them would look better?
Also I will be grateful if advise in the dimension of tires for wheels. (245/40 or 245/45)?
Thanks in advance

Than you`ll have to choose a Rotary Forged wheel, these wheels are much lighter than cast-alluminium wheels, for example the TSW Panorama RF weight 23,5 Lbs (=10,3 kg) excl.tyre, although these wheels are much more expensive !! (less petrol-use, lower un sprung weight, more acceleration speed)

That is what is etched on the inside of me wheel, hub bore 73.1 mm. I would probably go with 30-40 for that wheel. My spokes bow out and the backspacing is different, so 15 et on that Panarama would probably not be flush.

Don`t make mistakes Chris........the 20 inch wheels needs a wider kind of tyre, so the tyre is heavier than the tyre mounted on the 19.......We have to be glad that the 20 inch TSW set is equal on weight with the 19 inch set !

I'm thinking of using Mazda Tribute / Ford Escape alloy wheels for the winter. Specs are 16"x7" with 45mm offset. So the wheels are pushed away from the suspension by 5mm.

I have 2 different size tires under consideration.

#1 - 215/75/16
this tire is narrower for winter use, only .6% taller than the stock 17", and also I believe will give me the same track width of 1587mm.

#2 - 225/70/16
this is the same width as standard setup, only .4% lower than stock, but increases track to 1597mm.

For those of you who speak of scrub radius, suspension wear, leverage, etc, which is the best setup?

How about using 215/70/16 - which is about 3% lower? The only 215/75/16 I can find is the Toyo Observe and at $175 per tire is more than I want to spend. The 215/70/16 is both narrower and readily available. 1010tires says I could risk brake failure (not sure why).

Rim width is no problem whatsoever. On the offset, this difference would be like putting 12mm spacers on your stock wheels. It takes 25mm to get your wheels out flusher (Many use spacers of this size) to the bodywork so you'll be just fine here too..

That's almost 2/3" out from the stock in offset + 1/2" (1"÷2) in rim width = ~1.1" total out. It will depend on your tire size.

Go with a 235 and it should be okay.

I'm not an expert, but I would think that it will stick out quite a bit.
The +30 should be a bigger number, like 40-50(50 is the factory offset). ET 40mm, I believe is flush with the fender, 30mm sticks out 10mm. The smaller the number, the more it sticks out.
