- 2020 CX-5 Signature Azul Metalico
I suspect this has been asked before and I apologize if is a repeat question but what kind of tire life are people getting from the initial set of stock tires?

When the time comes [13.5K miles on the factory tires] I will be getting the Continental CrossContact LX25.
In Oregon I think they use coarse crushed lava rock imbeded in tar. Good for wet traction but really eats up tires.It's funny (or not) how many of the asphalt roads in Florida where I spend a couple of months every winter are oddly coarse. Evidently crushed sea shells are in the mix. In any case, a local Toyota service manager told me they often see OEM tires shot in the 20's of thousands of miles which I would attribute to the road surfaces.
IMO 5-year-old tires should be perfectly fine to use. My factory Toyo A23’s are more than 5 years old now but I have no worries. Discount Tire Store won’t service any tires which is more than 10 years old. You will see the sign of rubber aged such as dry rot and the tires would become unsafe to use. So I’ll consider a new set of tires after 10 years of usage, especially in hot and DRY area, even if they still have plenty of tread left.if one drives 20k+ miles per year, I get the 70k miles lifespan but for 12-15k per year thats 5-6 years on the same tires.
I personally wouldnt trust a 5+ years old tire which has been driven all those 5 years. Especially if in a hot climate. Tires rubber gets baked after so many years.
