    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.

    Thatís interesting about the tires. I thought for sure the Pirelliís would be a good choice. Iíll definitely take a look at the tire comparison guide

    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.

    Mine got replaced at 30K. Went with BF Goodrich Advantage TVA. The new tires have 21K on them and show very little wear.

    When I traded in my 2016 with 55,000 miles last September, it still had the stock Toyos on it. I was really pushing it though and probably shouldn't have held out that long but I hate putting new tires on a car in the middle of summer.

    18k miles on the stockers here, and they*re about halfway gone...

    I may replace them at the start of winter, who knows, but whenever the time comes it will definitely be with the General RT43....

    I would keep the Toyo's until 25K to 30K miles, and at that time I would install BF Goodrich.

    Radial T/A's?

    That's the last BFG tires I had. They looked good on my '79 Bandit TransAm. I guess I didn't know they were still making tires, as no one ever mentions them in threads like this.

    On my 2016 CX-5 I had Toyo's, Geolanders, and BF Goodrich. The BF Goodrich were my favorite for city driving handling characteristics as well as freeway cruising
    No matter which the tire model-brand I replace at about 30K miles (even if the tires still have lots of remaining wear life).

    Seems like a waste to do that. Unless you absolutely hate the tires or you're moving to a different size.
