the OEM wheels are 39lb(front) and 42lb(rear). I installed forged that weight 27lb and 29lb. Also weight saved by installing non run flats.

Canadian gallons are different 1 Canadian = 1.2 US . . . still . . 14.8 mpg is great compared to what others are getting.

I have an X5 5.0 with 19 inch wheels 285/45/19 back and 255/50/19 front
I have summer sport tires and could hardly move in 1/2 inch of snow

I was wondering what would be an ideal tire for the winter
i need performance as well as some traction
should i go with snow tires or all season? What are pros and cons of each

can you recommend a brand and size

thanks

i am well aware of different gallons. However Canadians will use US gallons when discussing mpg rarely do Canadians use british gallons for anything since liters are a much simpler unit of measurement. I am quoting US gallons
My current after a week of city driving is 17.1mpg and so you can convert it yourself that's 13.7L/100km

I'm definitely taking my 50i in then. I'm lucky if I see 14 and I babied the last tankful with my tune disabled.

I live in the leafy suburbs surrounded by fields. No city driving but no real highway either.

2010 X5M, 21K miles. Average city/highway 15.2 mpg since it was new - spirited driving.
When wife did most of driving average up was about 16.5mpg. I get about 17 on the highway at 80-90 mph. Wife gets over 19 mpg 70-80 mph.

What do you get with your diesel? I average 24mpg I haven't re-set it in months and it sees mostly town driving. I have got 30mpg on hiway trips.

No such thing as a metric gallon. The metric system uses liters. Gallons are either US or Imperial. Canada used imperial but now the country has mostly switched to the metric system.

Sorry I worded it wrong British gallons or US gallons is simpler, I am correct in the fact that Canada with use US gallons when discussing fuel mileage. US gallon 3.7L British gallons are 4.5L and a dry gallon is 4.4L but isn't used to measure liquid.

So w/ 21" 215s I'm getting about 22mpg (mostly urban driving in the DC area). I got about 25mpg on a recent road trip to FL (fully loaded w/ myself/wife/3 kids & accompanying luggage)

Us Brits call it an Imperial Gallon.

Those pics are fantasy for me. I NEVER have seen 17+. Maybe in neutral, coasting down a mountain?? but actually driving???

Its AWD, bi turbo V8, nearly 600HP, in a 5400lbs brick
Like Jeremy Clarkson said:
"This car would be less annoying to ecomentalists if it ran on sliced dolphin.
