Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx DSST RunOnFlat

I have a BMW x5 and while this is an excellent performing tire, tread life is absolutely HORRIBLE. I'm looking at new fronts in another 1k miles and new rears soon after. I expect more than 15k out of my tires and have had tires on other vehicles last 40-50k, so I know it isn't entirely my spirited driving. Not a fan of these Dunlops.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/P Sport RFT

These were OEM RFT tires on my X5 with the M Sport package with Adaptive Drive. The X5 handles great with these tires but can't compare to anything else. However, the tires started to become noisy at 8,000 miles and after 15,000 miles became unbearably awful. At 20,000 miles outer edges of fronts are gone, but rears still look okay.Will replace with...  Read More

Pirelli's Scorpion Winter vs. Scorpion Ice & Snow

Since its introduction, Pirelli has impressed us with their Scorpion Ice & Snow winter tire. It has been a favorite option for many light trucks, SUVs and crossover applications. In fact, it's so well liked that the tire is currently ranked number one in our Tire Survey Results. Some of the most popular fitments have been the 255/55R18 and 255/50R19 size for...  Read More

All-Season Tires for a BMW X5 with 20" Wheels

The BMW X5 is a sleek, sophisticated and high-powered SUV, which meets today's needs of sports car like performance with truck like versatility and cargo space. With the optional Sports Package, the BMW X5 boosts large 20" staggered wheels and run-flat tires. While the package offers a more aggressive stance with wider tires than the standard X5, it also...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 RFT

Doing this review late as these were OEM for the 2010 X5. Never rotated and they lasted over 40,000 miles. Just bought another set from TR. Should be the last set for this car as I will rotate these this time around. Cheap for a run-flat too.   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the General Grabber HTS

Replaced the OEM Michelin tire with these. The Michelin tires were good but after reading reviews of the General Tires decided to give them a try. The reviews lead on that the General was a better tire for the money. I was a bit skeptical as I've always used Michelin tires; however, after driving a few days with the Generals, I was not disappointed. The...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Yokohama AVID ENVigor (H- or V-Speed Rated)

Just put these on my 2003 X5 3.0 Sport this morning. Took them out for adrive to get a feel for them having come off of Michelin Latitude Tour HPs. I ran the Latitude's for 42k miles which is high for this tire on the X5 (negative camber kills inside treads).While early, the difference between the Latitude and Envigor is, the Michelin has a slightly softer...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Michelin Energy MXV4 Plus

OEM tires for my 2005 X5 3.0. Lots of city and highway driving and they haven't let me down in any weather (40,000 miles of the 58,350 were in Chicago). Was reading reviews of this and other tires and noticed a loyalty (and long-term feedback) on this particular tire so I thought I'd submit my own. Getting very close to the wear bars, and even though I'm in...  Read More

General Grabber HTS is a Quiet and Comfortable Option for Your SUV

For many years the General brand has been associated most closely with durable and value-priced passenger car tires, while becoming a brand that can be trusted. In order to meet the needs of light truck and SUV owners, General worked very hard to develop a high quality tire that can be offered at a reasonable price. I recently installed a set of General's Gra...  Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Dunlop SP Sport Maxx DSST RunOnFlat

Came with my X5. Very disappointed that the tires started getting very noisy at 14k miles. Went to the dealer who told me they only last 15-20 k miles and showed my tires at/ near wear bars. New tires once per year at $500 each!!!   Read More

Tire Rack Consumer Review of the Pirelli Scorpion Ice & Snow

We took our X5 offroad on some national forest trails. I was hesitant to go down some somewhat steep slippery rock trails, worried I might not get back up them, since I usually am traversing this particular path in a regular 4WD GMC pickup with low 4WD and BFG All Terrains, but the X5 AWD and the Pirelli's surprised me by making easy work of clawing back up...  Read More

Winter Truck Tires

Customers often say they don't need winter / snow tires because they have a four-wheel drive truck or SUV. Just because you have a four-wheel drive truck or SUV doesn't mean that your vehicle cannot benefit from a good set of winter snow tires! Keep in mind that while four-wheel drive helps you get moving quicker in the snow, it's of no extra help in...  Read More

Snow Tires/Wheels for BMW X5

BMW X5 drivers have struggled to find a good winter solution for those with the 20" sport package. Given that there is only one option for winter tires using the O.E. 20" staggered fitment, many customers elect to use the 18" option for winter tires. This allows for more options and improved snow and ice traction over the 20". This option uses a 255/55R18 on...  Read More
