You can put whatever you want on 4.6is. All pre LCI are not xdrive bmw's. Fixed transfer box ratio 38:62 not Electronically controlled.

Sorry, it was me still writing and pressed post by mistake. Weight is nonsense for me. The difference to Audi system: its all about the programming: xdrive software is much "tighter" then Audi, acts faster for road condition changes. Quattrro is just so slow compared to xdrive. Not on the firs gen of the xdrive system but on the second and third i can change the values/classification/clutch setting so the transfer box will last 400.000 miles, not a problem but is just very slow, not like ultimate driving machine:)

Whats your question? Radius/ rolling always comes together. You can not change rolling without changing radius.

Weight of the tyre?  "*" tyres are made so rear rolling is same as front. Thats it. In fact, the rears can be "smoller" then the fronts, if you do a lot motorway miles and all of you will be fine,  but if the rears are higher then fronts (non "*" tyres) you will damage transfer box. Transfer case can not compensate if the fronts are spinning faster. That's how the system is design.

The fact? Mine do wear at the same rate on all 4 tyres. Always did.

Tyres should wear equally. If they dont, check your wheel alignment.

All wheels are driven to some extent all of the time.  I think kkx5 has previously said that it never falls below 10% but I may be recalling that incorrectly.  It shifts to predominantly RWD though.

I believe the Haldex system on my VAG Škoda cuts the rear wheel drive above a certain speed unless the traction system needs it back on.  Clutch controlled.
All xdrive bmw's. Initial: front:rear, 50:50 then, from 30mph 38:62, above 100mph 0:100. System can switch to 50:50 at any time. If the rears are not running the fronts will never move, quite opposite to haldex.

Yes I’d love to as well, as I really want to try a set of non run flats. Are there really no approved ones that are non run flat?

Another post from that link showed how someone took off a brand new premium tyre to swap for a approved one, as he was getting the usual issues. He noticed when side by side the star marked tyre was quite different even though stamped size was the same!
Thats what my pictures shows. Same size approved vs non.

Just one comment to above pictures: As long as some of You will question star marked tyres, i will have a job:)
The knowledge is there for many years. Buy cheap tyres, pay high diff/gear/transfer box bills. If you can not afford to pay £900 for set tyres on high tech 4x4 BMW, go and buy a ford fiesta....
