    My local tire shop is recommending the Toyo Open Country Q/T and Michelin Premier LTX. They thought he Open Country should be a noticeable improvement over the OEM Toyo A23's. I'm hesitant about the Michelin Premiers based on all of the negative reviews on Tire Rack about poor tread life, so I'm leaning towards the Toyo Open Country.

    Installed the Michelins on my 2016 CX-5 last march and love them, so much quieter than the stock Toyos. As far as tread life, When new tread depth is 8-1/2 /32". After7700 miles all four measure at 8/32". That to me projects out to a pretty good tread life. These tyres at fantastic on wet roads

    My dad's CX-5 had 25,000 miles on it when he bought it and it had brand new tires on it. So I assume the originals wore out around 25k miles. It has Yokohama Avid Ascends on it now and they are pretty nice for all seasons. My 2015 Subaru Outback came with Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport All Seasons and they were AWFUL. Noisy, hard riding, didn't grip well, and bald before 25k miles. I put General Altimax RT43s on it after that and they were marginally better, now I have Hankooks on it, I forget what model and they are pretty nice. They are quiet, soft riding, grip pretty well for an A/S, and they are wearing nicely. I forget what model they are but I want to say Optimo.

    Mine have 115 miles -- I bought slightly larger Sumitomos as soon as the car was delivered.

    I'm still trying to sell/give away the original tires... Anyone?! They're like new and just taking up space. Just take them!

    My tires were replaced 23K miles or so. The life is bad for Yokohamas though performance was good and grip was good too.

    dc16 - setup an eBay and do a local pickup for tires. Provide pics of thread and post the information. I see $30 a pop for bad quality used tires - 4 for $80 should sell on eBay in NYC no problemo due to high population density. Do local cash on delivery and don't take Paypal. Also read up about protecting yourself. eBay can pay you top dollar for small and big stuff. Good lurk!

    Thanks for the suggestion. I haven't sold on eBay in a while, but did use Craigslist to sell tires a few years ago in a cash exchange at a CVS parking lot.

    These are recent completed/sold listings for Toyo A23 225/55/19 on eBay:
    https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_fro...H_Sold=1&rt=nc
    Not considering condition and wear, it looks like the going rate is about $65 a tire.

    I do have a thread going in the for sale section here, but I may list on eBay as you suggest.

    But first, I'm going to give a little time for JRM1022 to respond because I did say that he could have them for free local pickup/meetup.

    Arrow How many miles before you replaced your original tires?

    OE Toyo A23 225/55R19 on gen-1 CX-5 used to cost $269.31 each. 225/55R19 A36 on gen-2 CX-5 now is about $120 each. I guess very few vehicles are using this size, and you couldn’t sell them on Craigslist for only $80 on 4 such odd-sized brand-new tires.

    I'm in Pittsburgh, New York is about 6 hours. I visit New York a couple times a year but I was just there about about a month ago. Go ahead and list them up, if you still can't get rid of them, let me know and I'll make a trip. Thanks!

    Not sure how much would cost to ship a tire nowadays. But I do believe UPS or USPS would be expensive to ship a tire. If you're willing to ship, it'd be very easy to get rid of them. I may also be interested because my OE Toyo A23's are down to 4/32" on tread depth.

    I think it cost me $20 a tire from Tire Rack but the rep said that they have deal with UPS given their volume.

    The tires are a somewhat rare size despite the number of CX5s on the road.

    I just put a Craigslist posting up... JRM1022, when do you think you'll be in NY next time?
