2016 Mazda CX-5 GT AWD w/Tech Pkg
- Plano, Texas, USA
My Toyo A23's on my 2016 CX-5 GT AWD have about 4/32" tread depth at 34,398 miles. There're many reasons why some get more miles than others on OE tires. My CX-5 is doing city driving exclusively and I don't expect its tires would last too long no matter how careful my wife drives. If you use your CX-5 mostly on the highway and don't use brake much, you should get longer tread life out of your tires.My Toyo tires which are comparative to the Geolanders. At 45,000, 3 tires was 3/32 and the other 4/32. I change them at 48,700 miles. Wanted to try for 50,000 just for the yet of it, but a road trip was coming up and didn't need to.
I'm not sure way so many people didn't get the mileage we did. Maybe I pushed mine too far but they always came though to the end.
So FirstOfficer, I would say we got lucky with our tire mileage, but anything over 50,000 miles would be a pipe dream.
Time to start watching for deals. Good luck and good hunting.
In theory, all tires can be used safely until the tread depth reaches to 2/32" which is when the wear-bar shows up. But the traction most likely will be degrading after 4/32", especially on wet or snow-covered road surface. That's why many tire stores suggest the customers getting a new set of tires when the tread depth reaches to 4/32" although legally 2/32" tread depth or wear-bar has always been a standard that the tire needs to be replaced.
There're tires with long 90K-mile warranty. But tire age has been emphasized by tire manufactures in recent years and they cover tires only under 6 years old with warranty which actually makes some long mileage warranty useless under certain circumstances. And my personally experience also suggests that it's hard to make a tire last long as chances are it'd get nailed too close to the sidewall eventually which is not repairable.
