    CX5 Offroad Tire Question

    Link to the vid? It's also worth noting the Geolandar comes in both P-metric and LT sizes. The LT has more robust construction. Wonder if he was aired down properly.

    CX5 Offroad Tire Question

    This is the setup I want, except with slightly larger tires. Thinking 235/70/16. I also got rid of the aero flaps for a cleaner look.

    CX5 Offroad Tire Question

    I think around 29" is the ideal size for the Gen 2 CX, .5" larger than the stock 17s. There's not a lot of room to go bigger in diameter without rubbing when cycling the suspension. There is adequate space for wider tires. Personally, I would keep the Geolandars. The knobby KO2s will ride a lot...

    Off Topic RAV4 Prime pricing announced

    It has nothing to do with PETA and everything to do with cost. I couldn't justify dropping $40,000+ for plastic seats and a poorly implemented, stuck on display screen. Some of Toyota's interior and exterior designs are very questionable. That's just my opinion and these will find buyers. This...

    Anyone consider a used Luxury SUV for the price of a new CX-5?

    For sure, it's a boring vehicle. But it also has close to 300hp in current form, a smooth and quiet ride, and the reliability and resale I'm looking for. I feel like if you buy one used you could find a comfortable, reliable vehicle and won't get too beat up on resale.
