    A V-rated tire is capable of 149 MPH. Is the CX5 2.5 non-turbo capable of exceeding 130 MPH (H-rating)?
    I believe 130 MPH is a sustained speed rating that has a safety factor, allowing brief bursts of speed beyond 130.
    I believe the top speed of a CX-5 is 120 MPH.
    Yes, the official top speed on CX-5 is 120 MPH. Mazda itself uses H-rated tires on 17" tires for lower trim CX-5's which have the same 120 MPH top speed. I see no reason why we can't use 19" H-rated tires on CX-5.

    Exactly. For 225/65R17, 36~38 should be a more suitable tire pressure to General AltiMAX™ RT43 than factory recommended tire pressure at 34 psi.

    Can confirm. They felt very mushy at 34 PSI, but firmed up rather well at 36-37 PSI for me.

    I get my Blizzak WS80s taken off Friday and the Altimax RT43's back on. I'm going to be sure to tell them to air up to 37 PSI. Felt good last year at that level.

    It's actually Great! Outperforms about anything out there, at any price...

    Add a couple of pounds of air and watch the mushiness go away, and the wet performance will stay...

    The OEM Toyo A36's in 225/55/19 are V rated while the Pirelli's are H rated, BUT, the H rated Pirelli's will work just fine IF your tire dealer confirms that they will honor the warranty if you have issues, as Pirelli won't honor the warranty according to their sticker.

    The load rating for the two tires (Toyo and Pirelli) is the same (99 load index). Only the speed rating is different (H vs V). The General Altimax recommended by several also has a service description of 99H.

    Tire Rack will ship those tires to the tire shop of your choice. There is a list on the Tire Rack site.

    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.

    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.

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

    Once again, I believe that H rated tires will perform sufficiently, BUT, just make sure your tire dealer will provide a warranty should you have an issue as Mazda does recommend V rated tires for the 19" GT model, but only an H rating for the 17" GX and GS models. Pirelli, for one, clearly states they won't back a warranty if you use H rated tires on a V rated vehicle, although COSTCO told me they would personally back such a warranty as they have their own in house warranty which is not from Pirelli.

    Looks to me, Radar tire is a Brand owned by this company.
    https://omni-united.com/
    Looks to me, it is an importer that imports tires from China.

    Price to increase due to tariff on Chinese products.

    Omni United is located in Singapore and its tires are manufactured in 8 locations across 3 countries. Radar tire is Omni United's premier brand since 2006. Radar Dimax AS-8 225/55R19 103V tire actually is made in Thailand like some tires from major brands including Michelin, Pirelli, and Continental, not from China.

    In fact, I just ordered a set of Radar Dimax AS-8's from Discount Tire yesterday taking advantage of 10% rebate from its Independence Day Event. They matched WalMart price at $84.49 each, with installation, life-time tire maintenance, disposal fee, and $28.79 8.25% sales tax, $461.75 - $46 prepaid MasterCard = $415.75 total out of the door.

    I'm not in the hurry to install them on wife's CX-5 as the Toyo's still have 4/32" tread depth left at 35,392 miles.
