Bent wheels or bubble or tire can be

Now im thinking of going back to RFT, a peace of mind when traveling.

I guess i have 2 choices Mich PrimacyMXM4 ZP or Conti ProContact GX SSR
both are grand touring
You don't have a digital tread depth/air pressure measurement ?
My DWS06 have 20k miles on them and still 8/32 all four
My MPSS (stock) have 7k miles and are 7/32 ROFL!

Make sure u read TireRack reviews as Grand Touring doesn't compare to Ultra High performance when it comes to Snow/Rain and handling above 60mph

GT tires have lower speed rating, H 130mph which you lose in performance
only drawback.

You never take your car that fast so thats not what I meant, look at their Rain, Hydroplanning and Snow rating u want at least 8 in those if its going to be a year long tire.

X4 drivetrain issues

Hello, im new here.. from Brazil, got a x4 35 2016.

from a little time the car has started to make some high frequency noise, like hummmmmmm in highway speeds.. now in my last trip, started making some noises from the front, drivetrain, not engine.. stopped by the dealer, they say it was the diff. will replace them under warranty ( got my car used but with dealer warranty) . this is my third issue with it, being the first the plastic pipe that feeds air to engine (chargepipe) and second a fuel injector. all fixed under warranty. starting to think about trading in the car for another x serie..

My X4, 08 2015, was behaving delayed starting especially when hot. Initially I thought it was a sign of failing kick starter and I had to buy a used one. In another thought, also checked if it was failing alternator or bad engine ground cable. At the end, it turns out to be bad battery.

2016 X4 (2.0d Xline). I have a slight vibration under engine load, I have noted some other posts indicating that this could be linked to the prop shaft. Will look into it.

I have replaced a lot of stuff

Recently my 2015 x4 n20 died because of the water pump. Water Pump and radiator were replaced.
