thank you for agreeing with me! finally! it is such a shame....honestly. i have taken alot of pain staken time and effort to try to get mazda to fess up to the design flaw of the CX-7, needless to say with no luck! i purchased my cx-7 brand new from a local dealership and when i started having a ton of issues with the tires, i started at the dealership first. no-one believed me. i even called around to smaller tire dealers hoping for some luck. NOPE! after 6 months of back and forth, a BBB claim, a lemon law claim and a call to my state attorney general's office....i had gotten no-where. i have waisted my money on that car, and have since taken the HIT and have traded it in on a chevy. i was not having MAZDA take any of my money anymore......
i wish you the best of luck....and if anyone wants to do a class action against MAZDA, let me know!

I am not sure I agree with you 100%. The tires we got on the 2008 CX-7 (Grand Touring model) originally were 18" Goodyear RSAs which did not last long at all (but most cars do NOT come with premium tires - they come with whatever the "best deal" is for the manufacturer)
We switched out to 19" O-Z wheels and 19" Yokohama Paradas (both from the TireRack) - and the CX-7 has driven well since then. (much better handling for the vehicle and better wear on the tires)
We have not experienced any other issues with the CX-7 and have thought it was a good car for the money spent. (we have about 48K miles on it). It is much better in snow than our previous car - a 2001 Subaru Forester(probably because it is heavier and has a longer wheel base).
I think if you would have switched out the tires you would have found it is a good all-around vehicle.

Hi guys, I own a 2007 CX-7 GT AWD. I'm looking to buy a used rims for winter use. Specs are 18 inch rims, 8 width and +40mm offset. Just wondering if this would fit my CX-7. Stock rims are 18 x 7.5 and 50mm offset.
Anybody knows if this would make a difference? Thanks!
