Looking to pick up a set of Continental VikingContact 7 225/65R17's and rims for my 2019 CX-5. Quattro seems cheapest overall with installation on cheapish alloy rims that match the specs of the car. However, they give you only one choice for TPMS and it costs $52 for my car. I don't understand how a relatively simple device should cost anywhere near $50. Wish Quattro gave us a choice on TPMS devices.
The 2019 CX5 has "indirect TPMS" which is built into the ABS or something; there are no sensors needed. That's why you (probably) don't have a TPMS reset button.

Installation costs are usually $20 a tire, the bigger ones I guess are $25. I'm not sure how to actually just "buy" them without the install. But unless you can mount them on rims yourself I don't think you'll really beat the install price, I think i's pretty typical.
When you go there and collect your tires and say you don't want installation, they'll refund the $80 or so.

2017-2021 CX-5s have TPMS as part of the valve. You can buy from Scarborough Mazda for $70 each.

There is also a reset process described in the owners manual for when you change wheels yourself and need to recognize new TPMS sensors.

Oh, interesting. I swear I had read it was indirect TPMS. Maybe for another region then. I read about it when I was looking for why there is no longer a TPMS reset button.

The Vikingcontacts come as extra load tires, they are more than enough for a Sorrento.

Decided to go with Viking Contact 7s from Quattro - tires were roughly the same price but set of steel rims were nearly $100 cheaper and MAG80 promo code beat the Perkopolis code by $10.

Set of Viking Contact 7s (225/50R17) mounted on plain steel rims and delivered for $998.

Ordered Sept 9, delivered Sept 17. Dates of manufacture: 3 x 2220, 1 x 2120.

I noticed some manufacturers have MIRs right now for certain all seasons but or course mostly winters. My question is would it be best to wait for Spring rebates? That's when all the summer/all season tires come out correct? Kind of new to this MIRs and tires. TIA.
If your looking for A/S or summer tires those rebates will happen March/April for all tire manufacturers wait till than.

I swapped back to 19 inch wheels on my summer staggered setup and notice much more road noise on my Pilot Sport 4s. Not sure if it's because of my bigger wheel or the tires themselves.
What vehicle are you driving? I’m on also on a 19” staggered with the pilots. M340?

The Canadian automotive protection agency APA rates the Bridgestone Blizzak WS90 as the top rated Canadian snow/ice tire for 2019/2020

The VikingContact isn't on there, but I imagine it would be either Top Rated/Very Good anyways.

The Continental Viking Contact 7 replaces the WinterContact SI which was rated as "Very Good"

Thx guys. I had read about the indirect TPMS also and was hoping this was the case for my car. However I confirmed with the parts dept w/ my VIN# that my 2019 CX-5 Signature does indeed hv direct TPMS. (Also my factory wheels have the telltale metal valve stem for TPMS.) Not sure if it's a regional thing or if it's model specific though.
