Hard to say, but I would guess somewhere around 60% motorway, 40% other.

Not sure why these tyres are such a problem.
A quick web search found one supplier (mytyres.co.uk) listing 6 different winter tyres all with the correct 225/55 R19 99V specification. Highest price £165.70 (Toyo but Winter spec).
There is a potential problem with the TPMS, but as long as the tyres are fitted in pairs I don't see it can be much problem.
After I had my puncture I reset the system, but it came on again after a few miles (on the M25).
I stopped and checked all was OK, reset again and it has been OK since. 
Just wish I could reset the fuel consumption and see 54.7 mpg. So far not even reached 40 mpg.

At the time the search did show up a few winter spec tyres of the correct size and rating. I was told by several different suppliers that, whilst they would be OK, they weren't recommended for all year round use and that they would wear a lot faster than the recommended ones as they are a softer compound. Mine went at about 35k miles (compared with my Forester which still had the original tyres on when it went back at 75k miles). With 4wd cars, the norm is to have the front and rear tyre types to match as well. I believe that the supply problem with Toyo has now been sorted, though.

Ref the fuel consumption, I've had some improvement by using Shell V Power diesel. Still working on this but will update with some proper results soon.

interesting discussion again, particularly on tyre availability and life. After 12 months and 9,500 miles I would expect to get 35,000 miles at least on my 17 inch Toyo's. Do not expect to match 60,000 plus on my previous X-Trail, 16 inch Dunlop. 4 tyres only, didn't have to use the full size spare.
I will continue fuel consumption comments in that section. 9,500 miles and 40mpg so far.

Forgot to say in my previous reference to my X-Trail that I achieved 60.000 miles on 4 tyres by changing them Front to Back at 20,000 and 40,000 miles. Would not recommend that with the CX-5 as it would probably challenge TPS!

They did about 35000 miles and were pretty much down to the indicators. The fronts were slightly worse than the rears.

Wow that's pretty awesome I think, I know the tyre is bigger so in theory more milage, we are still at 15k so guessing another year yet, maybe 2 if im lucky.

Ah well, 23000 miles on the original Toyos and a whacking great screw gets embedded near the sidewall of one of the front tyres...so had two new Michelin Latitude Sport 3s fitted today for £318. Wasn't particularly impressed with the grip of the Toyos and the Michelins are supposedly pretty good in the wet so I am happy to have new tyres just hacked off to have to change tyres that are only half worn. Have kept the 'good' worn one in case I'm unlucky enough to have an unrepairable puncture on one of the rears in the next few months.

Pouring rain today and had to do a short run this morning. I think the Michelins maybe are better in the wet, although that could be just they are brand new.

One thing I've noticed with the new car is that it "feels" different to the old one despite being the same spec and having the same Toyo tyres fitted. Hard to describe, but it feels lighter at speed, almost "floaty". A bit like driving on a light covering of snow or ice, or like riding a motorbike with underinflated tyres. Doesn't feel unsafe, just different...

Maybe they've changed the suspension, or the weighting of the steering?

I do know they made mods to the suspension in the revamp, which does appear to have cured the "bang" when the suspension topped out over particularly bad bumps. (Something I'm used to as the road into our office has a speed-bump that will rip your spine out if not careful!) It's possible they may have changed the weighting as well as it feels similar at all speeds whereas before it definitely weighted up quite a bit with speed.

Check out the Michelin web site. They now offer a correct fit tyre which has top wet weather performance.
I wouldn't buy anything else if I could avoid it.
Try Costco for the best price.

Thanks mike nearly got 19k now, but down to 3mm, not going to chance it this winter and get them changed soon as I see the weather change, I once managed 50k on a Michelin mxv tyre, I was under impression that the longer wear life you have the worst the grip rating due to it being a harder compound, I guess things have come on with tread patterns and compounds. looking at previous reviews it looks like im far short of what some guys are getting, our tyres are set and kept at the correct pressure as per chart by drivers door but 90% town driving cant help for sure.

what are the Michelins like reference road noise?

I will post what I get and price when it happens

Not noticed any difference re road noise with the Michelin Latitude Sport 3s on the front.
