#7 of 36 Replacement Tires
Nov 12, 2006 (9:57 am)
I need advice. I have a 4.4i with the sport package. I have Michelins on the car now. They are needing replacement and I'm not sure what tire is best. I spend a lot of time of the highway. Any suggestions?

Anybody had experience with Toyo Proxes S/T on a X5? I had them on a Mercedes ML320 and preferred them over Michelin. Thanks,

Yes - I had stock BMW 17" Wheels / Tires and upgraded to 20" w/ 295 / 45 - 20 Toyos. They handle great in the dry, but the stock tires (M & S) are a lot better in wet. Dennis

Dennis - When you mentioned above that you upgraded to 295/45/20 toyos, were these really 45 profile or were they 295/40/20. Asking as I'd also like to upgrade and would have thought that the 45s would have been too high for the wheel arch. It would be great if you could confirm - Thanks James

I am running the Alcan 5000 Rally in Feb. and would like a set of 17x7.5 5-lug wheels for an X-5 to mount my studded tires on. Does anybody have a set of take offs laying around after they've up graded their wheels?

#15 of 36 X5 Run Flats in the Snow

I have a 2007 X5 3.0 with the Bridgestone run flat tires. They are horrible in the snow, even a little bit. Does anyone have that problem?

Are they snow Tires? or the all seasons, what size? Im really curious, I bought the new X% special edition here in Canada, it has a M sport package on it and 20 inch Dunlop summer tires, I have to order some snows, they are recommeding these 19 inch Dunlop Daytrek M3 Run Flats Snows, although some of the reports on these tires are really not grand. I have a 2006 MB ML 500 now with Pirelli Scorpions on it , best snows! but they dont have run flats , any suggestions or ideas?
