Hi smee,
I was asking the question on rolling circumferance and I do not want to sound disrespectful to any member. I do not know the rolling circumference tolerance for the X5 E53. If nobody knows it here I am sure it will come out on another forum as I have not found it on here. Maybe the wrong search string? It is certainly not written in the info I have.
I do firmly believe the manufacturers of cars and tyres are in bed together. 4 tyres from the same manufacturer with the same tread depth and correct tyre size should not be a problem? The special rating from what I have learned is car manufacturers and tyre manufacturers trying various combinations. Promises of higher tolerances. But for sure their is no special tyre line making a brand specific tyre.
Please correct me with a link to the information and I will be grateful.
A post from pistonheads formu explains it all:
Apparently the MO (Mercedes Approved) and the BMW * are to do with rolling diameter: quite a few BMW are with staggered wheels, so in order to keep the rolling diameter identical but with different tyre sizes front/rear the MO and * are meant to tweak the sizes ever so slightly to ensure minimal differences.

Even more important on the xDrive BMWs where the centre differential takes the brunt of any differences between front and rear (my X3 has 235/50/18 front and 255/45/18 rears)

For a normal RWD BMW I would be more concerned about getting some premium tyres than the * ones.

Hello.Does anyone have advice for this situation please? Yesterday I opened the hood and found traces of engine oil, so something is apparently leaking.I did not see the obvious reason. What are the options?
Get rid of it....

2 wheel drive only, Rwd. All power goes 100% to rear wheels, no 4x4, no abs, no dsc.

Hi. You need to be more precise, codes are from Dsc, Vtg or Egs or All of them? Search for an Indy with Bmw soft.
