X4 Tyre Change

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Bit the bullet and decided to change out the 20" Pirelli PZero Run-Flats for Vredestein Ultrac Vorti non Run-Flats. it seems the X5 lads have had success with these taking the jittery edge off while improving handling.....

Won't have them for a week, but will post when I've tried them out.

Chopper 45: I checked test by Auto Express: overall winner was Continental Conti Contact 5.

Best handling in dry has Vredestein Ultrac Vorti - with a narrow margin.

I think that you will get better comfort with non-run flats.

Best of luck- but don`t drive too fast in the wet

Hi Tjalle, I did a fair bit of research but the first thing is to see what tyres will fit both in size and load rating as you know. In the end the following were my only choices -

Conti 3 Sportcontact
Dunlop Sport Maxx GT
Yokohama Advan Sport 103 and 105
Falken FK 453
Vredestein Ultrac Sessanta
Vredestein Ultrac Vorti`

All i want is to take the harsh edge off on rough surfaces which i think the more pliable sidewalls will give...

New Tyres on and oh what a difference.... The ride comfort is so much better but not only that I definitely feel that the X4 is more settled in bends and inspires more confidence.. A great result :-)
