Best Tires for the Mazda CX-5 and CX-9

The Mazda CX-9 and CX-5 are Mazda's mid-sized and full-sized crossover SUVs for the North American market. Despite their roomy interiors, these stylish crossovers have surprisingly nimble handling which makes them fun to drive. When the time comes to choose replacement all-season tires, consider the top tires from the Grand Touring All-Season and Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season performance categories, including the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology and Michelin Primacy MXV4

I've had the Michelin Primacy MXV4 on my Mazda CX-7 (the predecessor to the CX-5) for three years and have been very happy with them. This tire has reliably provided my vehicle with a very smooth and quiet ride, good handling and great wet traction. The set has been a big improvement over the Goodyear Eagle RS-A tires that many of these vehicles came installed with from the factory.

Another great choice to consider is the Continental CrossContact LX20 with EcoPlus Technology, which is currently one of the top-rated tires in the Crossover/SUV Touring All-Season category. Our customers consistently praise the tire's snow traction, ride quality and wet traction.

Some of the higher trim levels of the CX-9 and CX-5 use tire sizing that is not quite as common, therefore there are fewer options available. In the harder-to-find sizes, take a look at the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season Plus
