I'm shopping around for a new set to help improve the ride and have me better prepared for the coming winter. I see a lot of positive reviews for these in the CX-5 forum, and only suggestions for it in the CX-9 threads. Worse is that the lone review for the CX-9 at TireRack is of a person that regretted purchasing CC's.
I'm hoping that someone here, also riding on a CX-9 with 20's can share their experience and opinion.
Thanks in advance!
I have a CX-5 and not a CX9 and am running Firestone destination AT 16 inch tires that work great. Had switched from19 inch to 16 inch which greatly improved the ride.
we've had the cross climates on another vehicle and they worked great on that car.
You shouldn't put too much weight into one sole opinion. The review of multiple other users regardless of the car maker/model is what matters.
The CC2 should work fine for grip in most conditions.
However what do you mean by "improve your ride" ??
If you are looking to make your ride less bumpy and more comfortable, switching tire brands will not do that. You need more sidewall and should consider moving to 18 inch tires. Smaller thinner tires with more sidewall is also better for winter driving.
Both Nokian and Michelin snow tires work great.
Why not get some 18 inch rims and 18 inch snow tires ?
