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.Yep. Haven’t checked my tires yet but here’s the list:
Now with warmer weather, the trip computer is reading 29.9 to 30.3 avg per tank on my usual commute.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.
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 diameterWith 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.

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