Continental Crosscontact LX25 Tires

:
2019 Mazda6 & CX-5
Checked my tires and they don’t appear on the list so all good. These are Continental Crosscontact LX25 in 225/55r19 size.

Yep. Haven’t checked my tires yet but here’s the list:

Based on TIN plant codes on the list which are all “A3” or “1A3”, these recalled tires are only from Mount Vernon plant in Illinois by General Tire & Rubber Company. So one easier way to tell is all recalled tires are made in the USA.

Looks like only some Continental CrossContact LX 225/65R/17 102H manufactured in 06/17/18 ~ 06/30/18 (DOT date code 2518 and 2618) and 225/65R/17 102T manufactured in 08/09/20 ~ 08/15/20 (DOT date code 3320) are associated with our CX-5 with 17” tires. No 225/55R19 tires is on the recall list.

Since most people are getting Continental CrossContact LX20 or LX25’s, I believe no CX-5 owners should get affected by this recall.

Actually, the trip computer will (and is) showing somewhat worse MPG, as it accumulates fewer miles (3% fewer than my 2/32" A36) over a given run time or tank of gas. The trip computer reports about 2MPG lower than before (29 vs 31 MPG avg per tank), or about 6% lower. Possible some of the additional reduction is due to ambient temps; I changed tires about the same time as it got markedly colder in North Texas. I've settled on 34 PSI for now, BTW.

I never manually calculated MPG (odo miles/ refill gallons) with the A36, so I only have the trip computer comparo. As for the speedo; it reads less than 1 MPH higher @ 70MPH, as compared to GPS. And last, no detectable rubbing of the tires on the strut assy's.
Now with warmer weather, the trip computer is reading 29.9 to 30.3 avg per tank on my usual commute.

I thought Mazda recommends 35 psi cold for factory Toyo A36 225/55R19 tires on 2017 and newer CX-5, although it’s 36 psi for gen-1 CX-5. I personally use 39 psi on my Toyo A23 225/55R19 for even wear.

With your slightly bigger rolling diameter, you will be going a little faster than the speedometer says, and be getting a little better fuel economy that what is reported. Acceleration will be a little slower. All subtle.
Actually, larger diameter notwithstanding, I think MPG will go down, but as you said, marginally. I think that increase in power needed to get the heavier tire and larger diameter tire going will more than offset your larger rolling diameter

There was one particular youtube video which was referring to road noise on LX25's. I was not sure if it was some shady promotion to steer towards a different brand. Has anyone noticed road noise issue with their LX25's? I am looking to replace the OEM tiers on my 2016 CX-5 GT, I am debating between these, any suggestions?

I live in the sunbelt area with dry weather and occasional rains. I am looking for a daily driver with focus on reducing cabin noise (which is quite plenty in CX-5 2016).

Primacy Tour A/S if price is ok for you. Otherwise Conti LX25.

I have the Primacy and they are (for me) the best tire in that size for the CX5.
Both Primacy and LX25 are good at the end of the day.

Thanks for your input. I have Michelin MXM4 on my other vehicle and i like its handling. I usually prefer changing tires at Costco and so may go with Primacy A/S when Michelin costco offer comes back.

I bought a set of the LX25s last summer so they are relatively new. They aren't noisy like all terrain tires. They are quiet on a smooth concrete highway but they don't do much to muffle the noise of rougher asphalt. I don't know if any tire can do that.

They are probably quieter than most all season tires.

Yeah, I don't think as well there is such a tire :) in ref. to very rough asphalt or whatever they use since sometimes it's not really asphalt.
 
What is the current best promotion available on Continental LX25's? I don't see anything out there for the month of April 2021.

Also, any thoughts on GOODYEAR ASSURANCE MAXLIFE (which is the #1 recommendation I get from DiscountTire for a daily driver) vs Continental LX25's? The Goodyear has a $50 MIR at DiscountTire, brining the price of LX25 and MAXLIFE to be the same.

I see the local Mazda dealers are running buy 3 get 4th for $1. Doesn't look like they carry Conti though & Michelin look to be excluded. Price for GOODYEAR ASSURANCE MAXLIFE fully installed is $811.12 (tax not included). That's using the 19" my GTR takes. I sometimes deal with a local regional tire franchise who will usually price match those deals. Perhaps DiscountTire does. I've never dealt with them.

Thank you. That’s a good idea. Will try to get a quote from dealer and see if DiscountTire matches it for Goodyear.
