Question about BMW X5 Series

1 Answer

I have a 2008 X5 3.0si. After 26.5K miles the RFT tires are very slippery on the snow and on wet roads. I have Bridgestone Dueler H/L 400 tires. Any known problems? Can I replace them with non RFT tires?

Does traction control system cause tires to wear out faster


No, Traction control only engages when slippery conditions exist. So unless you live in the snow belt or drive on wet muddy dirt roads you may likely never experience a traction control engagement.

2006 Highlander V-6 AWD,(not Limited Ed). I Live in colorado, drive about 30k /yr, need tires that will handle the snow/ice and hopefully last for 45k, suggestions?


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

In a word, finding tires that will handle snow and ice, and last for 45,000 miles is a difficult task.

Tires that perform better in the snow are traditionally 'softer' tires, and are not going to last 45,000 miles, due to the inherently softer tread composition..

We here recommend Bridgestone "Blizzak" winter tires. We have found their performance on snow to be simply tremendous. I would get come Blizzaks installed if I were you.

Thanks for choosing FixYa today.

I own a 2008 Toyota Highlander Limited Edition with 27,000 miles and had it at the Toyota dealership yesterday for an oil change and tire rotation. I was informed that it needs 4 new tires because there...


whats the tread depth of the four tires. If there less than 3/32" than your due for new tires. You are required to have at least 2/32" for your vehicle to be legally on the road in the U.S.. Anything less than that and your on borrowed time. Traction on wet roads or snow will be greatly reduced.

If the sticker shock is getting you upset than shop around. Your driving a nice riding vehicle with some incredible safety features. Don't skimp on ride quality by going with a cheap off brand tire.

Goodyear wrangler silent armors, Dunlop A/t's, and Brigdestone trailcomp t/a's are my top three tire choices.

If you concerned about the low mileage and being due for tires thats about the norm for Toyota's O.E. tires across the board cars or trucks.

4 wheel drive


use part time on wet or slippery road surfaces. Use full time in snow.
Though some will shift into different modes at a standstill, I generally do so when rolling at 5-20mph...it makes engagement easier on the transfer case. when driving on dry road surfaces, why use 4x4? it uses more fuel and really has little benefit. differences in front/rear wheel speed must be absorbed by transfer case alone, while on slippery surfaces, a bit of tire slippage reduces stress on unit.

Looking for a different tire for Suzuki XL7 (2007). Currently has the factory tires Bridgestone 235/60-17 which are a strange size. Need to know if a Cooper CTS 245/65-17 will rub the wheel wells?? Any...


I do not know for certain whether the larger tires will fit; but here is how you can check.

The 235/60-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II have a diameter of 28.3 inches, rim width of 7, section width of 9.3 and a tread width of 7.8. When compared to 245/65-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II the diameter(29.5) is 1.2 inches larger and the section width(9.8) is 0.5 inch larger. The rim width and tread width are the same. You would need to check existing clearances and then compare to the additional size required to verify fitment.
The above data is from TireRack (see web address below)
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Bridgestone&model=Dueler+H%2FT+D684+II&tirePageLocQty=

Tire Rack carries 5 different tires from 3 brands(Bridgestone, BFG, and Kumho) in the 235/60-17 size at $66 to $119 each. I have bought many tires from them without a problem. They do not carry Cooper tires.

traction control helps you keep better traction on wet roads and helps you maintain control of the car. no you dont have to have certain tires on the car for the traction control to work. it helps you drive better on wet roads and on snow etc.its built into alot of vehichles these days .
