    Tires

    Hello,

    At what mileage did you replace your OEM tires on your CX-5? Iím currently at 15k miles, and am thinking about putting some Pirelliís on. My tires still seem like theyíre in OK condition, and was just wondering what type of mileage I could get out of these?

    If you did replace them, what did you go with? What would you recommend?

    Thanks all!

    What's the remaining tread depth?

    It really depends on your driving habit and maintenance. My OEM Toyo A23 225/55R19's on my 2016 CX-5 GT AWD currently have 33,499 miles and they have 4/32" tread depth all around. I keep tire pressure at 39~40 psi and rotate tires once every 5,000 miles as recommended by Mazda,. Based on "300 A A" UTQG rating on these Toyo's, 30,000-mile life time (to wear-bar, 2/32" tread depth) should be expected for a CX-5 with routing rotation and an average driver.

    You have Toyo A36, but everything should be very similar to my Toyo A23.

    Although Mazda has been using H rated 17" tires on certain CX-5 trims, some people have concerns that Pirelli's manufacture warranty may be voided if the owner didn't use the replacement Pirelli tires with the same speed rating as OE tires. This may cause some problem to choose Pirelli tires as they only offer H rated tires for the size of 225/55R19, but the OE Toyo's are V rated.

    I personally would choose either General AltiMAXô RT43 for major brand, or Radar Dimax AS-8 225/55R19 103V for half of the price.

    Like Sig cx-5 suggested, you should check tire tread depth first at 15,000 miles that your CX-5 currently have. You may still have another 15,000 miles to go from your OE Toyo tires.

    If you really like Pirelliís, check the manufacture warranty first to Pirelli and see if the speed rating thing is legit. I personally have never heard of this, but this'd been mentioned by some forum members. Besides, Mazda does use H rated 17" tires on CX-5, there's nothing wrong to use H rated 19" tires on it too.

    This is copied directly from the Pirelli tire warranty description on their website. Seems pretty clear to me!

    "CAUTION:
    Please be aware that it is important to ensure that, before fitting the suggested tires, the fitting is
    allowed by the technical specifications of the vehicle, the vehicle manufacturer and the relevant
    homologations. Pirelli does not express any view as to the compatibility of the wheel/tire
    combination with the technical specifications for the chassis and vehicle.

    TO MAINTAIN VEHICLE DYNAMICS AND LOAD CARRYING CAPACITY, REPLACEMENT
    TIRES MUST ALWAYS HAVE A LOAD INDEX AND SPEED RATING THAT EQUALS OR
    EXCEEDS THAT OF THE ORIGINAL EQUIPMENT TIRES OF THE VEHICLE."

    A reputable tire seller or mounter will follow the above CAUTION, to avoid legal issues in case of a crash. Ed

    Tire Rack shows some that are the correct size for my CX-5 when I enter my vehicles information. I will go talk to a tire shop.
