BMW Ultimate Service

When I got into my new X I sure felt good about the maintenance program, knowing I would not have to spend any money on maintenance for the entire lease. Now I am coming to the realization I will be putting new tires on the X every year at $1500 a pop. 9500 miles and down to 3/32. I was told by the dealer that the X just eats tires. Live and learn. Fool me once, shame on you............

Hmm... seems a bit excessive. I have a 35d with the 336 wheels and OEM run flats. 18 months and 18,340 miles later I still have decent tread left. I think I can milk these to 23,000 miles. I do have outer edge wear on the front tires but that's normal from what I've been told and seen. I drive pretty aggressively I'll admit. Maybe you should have someone else take a measurement.

You are correct it is excessive. Which tire do you have? I need to replace soon. Assuming I got 23000 out of the second set, that would get me to 33000. My lease runs to 36000 and you need to have 4/32nds when you return the vehicle. Hence 3 sets of tires, two on my nickel. That is excessive.

We have 19,000 miles on our 35d and the tires look fine. You might want to get the alignment checked and rebalance the wheels. Something's definitely off...

Instead of , how about posting the size and brand/model of tires, at least? Not to mention there's plenty of threads about tire wear, common problems and solutions.

A little rude I would say.

They are 20" Dunlops. I have read the other postings and just wanted to share my observation. I guess you are right I am crying about it.

Enough said.

Have a Happy Holiday season.

I have a 2010 3.5d with OEM Bridgestone RFT. Just changed the front tires after getting 30K miles out of them. Rears look like will give me at least another 5K. It's my wife's car, but I drive it pretty hard every weekend.

Thanks for your reply. I am going to try those tires next plus an alignment and hope to make it through the lease

Happy holidays.

My 2011 X5d just got new shoes at 29k. Rears looked fine, but I was told with all wheel drive vehicles you want to replace a four at the same time. Factory was Bridgestone RFT and I put the same back on. I had BMW give it an alignment after the installation even though I felt it didn't need one. All good at 30k now.
