97k and always been on star rated tyres
That must be quite annoying.
You have tried to make sure you dont have issues with the transfer box by using the correct tyres but get issues anyway.
100.000 miles out of the transfer box on such a heavy/powerfull/315 tyres/8 years old car is bad? Transfer box is a heart of the 4x4 xdrive system, continuously switching power/torque between front and back....

Steering or rear abs sensors. Read the error codes.

I think that's KKX5's advert, he's a member on here 😀😀😀😀😀😀😀
Yes, thats me :)

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.

X5Sport, You are the man :ok:

....and save some ££££ for dif/transfer/gearbox repair. What an idea to run nexen/isota and other chinese crap on xdrive car...sorry......

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.
