We've got 36k miles on the OE Continental tires on our 2015 Q5. They've been rotated as needed. Will need to get fresh tire within 5 - 7k miles. Inflation always kept at recommendation for Normal Load (from Owner's Manual) + 1psi.

We have a 2015 Q5 TDI with about 21,000 miles. The tires look great with seemingly Limited and even wear.
We rotate them every 5-10,000 miles and keep pressure at higher end of range. In all fairness, most of the miles were put on highway driving.

I got 50,000 miles out of the original Continentals (19") on my 2014 Q5 TDI. As per owners manual, they were rotated only once at 5k miles. Very even wear too. I consider my driving style "moderately spirited" also. Replaced with Conti TrueContact.

Default Replace with Yokohama Geolander?

We use winter tires for about 1/3 of the current 85,000km on our 2014 Q5 TDI. So about 60k km or 40k Miles were run on the original Michelin Latitude Tour HP Tires. There is still some usable tread but for safety and load capability I am going to replace the Michelins this spring.

I tow a 28' Airstream trailer with the Q5 and so I want a tire with some load carrying capability as well as a fairly stiff sidewall to minimize roll. I am currently looking at the Yokohama Geolander GO55 or the Geolander A/T GO15. Both have their strong points. I am leaning toward the GO55 as I mostly travel highways but it would be nice to have the GO15 if I was doing a a trip where the roads are less than ideal, thinking Alaska. Both tires come in the 235/60R18 107V XL size that I am looking to purchase.
Does anyone have any thoughts on the above tires or have ideas for any others that I should be looking at?

Thanks

Our 2015 Q 5 TDI has about 25,000 miles, and the tires look in great shape. I expect another 25,000 minimum.

About 2/3 of mileage has been on highway. We align front and rear and rotate tires around every 10,000 miles.

Hope this helps.

The tires on my wife's Q5 have about 24k miles on them and the edges on the front are worn. She said that it's hydroplaned a few times recently. I bought another set of wheels yesterday and I'm going to swap them out after I get tires installed.

Default Goodwill Money

I have about 20K on my tires, although I run winter tires also, so still plenty of tread. They are Goodyear Excellence. I just used my $1000 of Goodwill money to buy a set of Continental ExtremeContact DWS06. I'll keep them in the basement until it's time to replace the Goodyears. The Goodwill cards were set to expire end of January.

People are saying that if you report the card lost VW will replace it and you get another year out of it.

I read that, but I didn't want to gamble with $1000! Anyway, I've got a nice set of tires for when the time comes. Seemed like a good use of the money. I've already got Audi Care.

My wife's Q5 has 24k miles and we had new wheels and tires installed last week. The front tires were worn on the outer edge, but I think it was due to the previous owner keeping the tires under inflated. The tire pressure shown on the sticker in the door is really low.

Yeah. I tend to run my tires a couple psi above the door recommendations. I also put on a set of winter wheels and rotate the summer wheels each spring. Hoping to get a few years out of them.

I was told to fill the tires to 80% of the max psi listed on the side of the tire. Both of our vehicles have the same tires so they're inflated to 40 psi. The owners manual has the SQ5 tires listed at 39 psi so it should be fine.

Default Q5 Tires & MPG

Got 47,500-miles on the OEM Goodyears! About 40/60 city/highway driving. good all-around tire and quiet. Replaced at Costco with Michelin Latitude HPs. At 52,000-miles I'm pleased with the ride - quiet and grippy. Still on original brakes and rotors but expect to replace all at 55K service (estimated cost at dealer $1,200!).

Overall MPG per Fuelly, since new, 30.2!! Love this car and dread the diesel fix!
