Falken HS449 (28-493-937)I've been looking for another set of wheels to use for snow tires, and I just found a set of brand new OEM 19" CX-5 take-offs for dirt cheap (almost the same size/dimensions plus the factory look) and was going to go pick them up ... but fortunately I looked on tire rack for snow tires, and there is only ONE tire that's manufactured in the factory 19" size (225/45/19), Blizzak LM32s, which cost $215/tire on sale! Paying almost $950 shipped for tires totally negates the cheap cost of these rims.
Anyone else had any success finding a 19" snow tire? I did a bunch of googling and couldn't find anything else. Looks like I need to wait and find a set of 17s.
Locally, there is a set of 17" CX-5 wheels for $800, a set of 2014 Mazda3 16" alloys for $450, and this set of 19" CX-5 wheels for $200. The 17"s are perfect but way too expensive, the 16"s might work but I don't know if they'll fit over the brakes, and the 19"s I can't find snow tires for.
