Yeah, General AltiMAX RT43 has only H rated on 225/55R19. Use H rated tires on CX-5 with confidence, as Mazda itself uses H rated tires on lower trimed CX-5 too.225/55R19 only come with H speed rating.
If you really prefer V rated tires on 225/55R19 but don't want to pay high price, here's a good alternative with V speed rating AND higher load index, 103V; not to mention it has good reviews and costs half of the price comparing to many other 225/55R19 tires.
Went to my Discount Tire Store yesterday checking out the price and availability on new 225/55R19 tires again. The rep measured tread depth of my CX-5 and verified all 4 are having 4/32" left and wearing evenly on middle and side tread. My 2016 CX-5 GT AWD now has 33,220 miles on OE Toyo A23's. This proved keeping tire pressure at least 3 psi higher than factory recommended 36 psi at 39~40 psi is the right decision on tire wear, although I personally don't like the firm sometimes harsh ride due to higher tire pressure with these A23's.
Thanks to nice find and 8,000-mile mostly winter road condition ride experience by Badgerbass on Radar Dimax AS-8 225/55R19 103V tire, I asked the rep if DT can get this tire even though I'd asked the same question before to a different rep and he said they can't. But this time he made some extra effort and found the source which DT can order Radar tires from, Omnisource. By going through Discount Tire ordering this tire, I can enjoy lifetime tire rotation、balancing、and puncture repair nation-wide, not to mention DT usually can match online price. Currently this Radar Dimax AS-8 225/55R19 103V tire sells for $84.44 each with free shipping at WalMart.com, which is less than half of the prices from most other tires with same size!
Another tire option for 19" wheels
