    Arrow Tpms

    While I'm not in favor of having 4 or 5 battery-powered air pressure sensors sitting in the tire valve stems, but the fact of matter is that design has no more issues than the TPMS using ABS speed sensors like our CX-5. Besides when TPMS is having problems in our CX-5, it's harder to diagnose and more expensive to fix. You can "rebuild" the TPMS valve stem easily and cheaply each time you replace the tire for preventive maintenance. Discount Tire charges only $6 each for the rebuild kit.

    One deficiency on TPMS using ABS speed sensors is there is no way to tell which specific tire the pressure is low. And the system won't cover your spare tire which mostly gets ignored only until you need it but it's 20 psi too low on air pressure! Another flaw is it can't tell you when all 4 road tires are low on pressure at the same time due to seasonal changes.

    Honestly I wish there's no federal mandate on TPMS system.

    Problem on CX-5's TPMS:

    Took it to the dealer, they wanted to reset it again for me. And light came on a second time.
    Now the dealer wants a minimum of $115 to just diagnose the problem and go from there.

    Not much problem on direct-read TPMS:

    Why this focus on maximum tire inflation pressures? It doesn't matter what size or brand of tire you put on there, at a given tire pressure, the contact patch area will be the same (square inches) across the board. By increasing tire pressure over factory specs, tire contact patch area is reduced, thereby reducing available grip. Tire pressure is one part that goes into the GVWR rating, which you should never exceed anyway. Always use the factory tire inflation spec, no matter what tire is on the car.

    OK guys, I just plunked down my plastic at Discount Tire for these: https://www.yokohamatire.com/tires/detail/yk740_gtx

    They aren't in stock yet everywhere, so I have to wait until next week to get them, but wanted to get in on the $70 rebate that ends on Saturday. I'll report back with initial impressions and then follow up periodically on how it's going. I for one always enjoyed the handling of our OEM Toyo A23's, but the treadwear was pretty awful. I really hope these tires perform as well in the summer as the A23's. I have Blizzak DM-V1's on 17" wheels for winter, so I am not concerned with winter performance for these tires.

    I think you will be pleased with them , I have them now, have driven approximately 7500 miles on them , they are a stiffer tire than the Toyo, the steering is much more responsive , it took about 1000 miles for them to break in , they are not noisy but the ride is slightly firmer than the OEM tires, they seem to be wearing very well.

    Arrow Yokohama YK740 GTX™ Tire

    Just based on specs, the only thing I don't like this Yokohama YK740 GTX™ tire is its weight at 29.1 lbs! It's the second heaviest tire on the list. I'd try much lighter tires such as General AltiMAX™ RT43 at 24.4 lbs or Continental TrueContact™ at 25 lbs.

    Please report back your real-world experience, including the orange oil smell, on this Yokohama YK740 GTX™ tire...

    Good to know. I will actually enjoy the stiffer ride and better handling.

    Yes, they are heavier. My guess is that the extra weight comes from stiffer sidewalls, which is OK by me. Oh, and I'm getting my nose in shape now via deep breathing exercises so I can smell the oranges!

    Weight isn't everything. Different tires are made differently, and one tire that is lighter than another might have sacrifices made in things like cornering/handling ability if the sidewall is thinner, for example.

    Yeah, but other than light weight, General AltiMAX™ RT43 and Continental TrueContact™ both rated on very top in every catagory, including cornering and handling according to Tire Rack customer reviews. Several forum members here used these two tires are all giving good reviews.

    Without getting into THAT debate again ) I wanted to stick with V-rated tires.

    I'm about to order a set of RT43s from TireRack and considered the Contis as well. I have a suspicion, given that General is a division of Continental, both tires seem to be positioned and priced similarly and both get similar consumer reviews, that they are in fact the same tire, just with slightly different tread design marketed through different channels. The pluses for the RT43 is that it can be had in the proper speed rating for the CX-5, they're about $10 cheaper per tire and they have a $50 cashcard rebate through mid-Oct.

    You didn't mention it earlier but I think this's the best reason than others getting this Yoko tires although my position is still H-rated 19" tires are good enough, like CX-5 Sport / Touring uses H-rated 17" tires from factory, for our CX-5.

    Yeah I suspect that General AltiMAX™ RT43 and Continental TrueContact™ are very similar structure wise with slightly different tread design too. But I'd get General AltiMAX™ RT43 when the time comes because I have General AltiMAX™ RT43 on my Honda CR-V and am very satisfied with it. It has a little price advantage than others, and categorized as "Grand Touring" All-Season tire but Continental TrueContact™ is categorized as "Standard Touring" All-Season tire.

    lol why do you go to the trouble of putting the "trademark" symbol after every time you mention the tire names?
