Mostly Country Roads for 1,000 Easy Going milesBMW X3
Fitted onto BMW X3 2.0d 2006.
I had Michelin Primacy 3 on previously (magnificent tyres - probably the best I've ever driven on on any car).
My requirements were
- AT tyres that fit the X3
- Up-sized by about 3% (235/55 to 235/60 or 225/(60 or 65))
The X3 drives pretty much only on tar in everyday life, but I wanted AT tyres for when I do go off-road (which I do from time to time when travelling), and I wanted a bit of a tougher tyre. I couldn't find a suitable highway-terrain tyre either.
I drove a long trip recently, and the tyres feel great. They're comfortable, grip well, feedback well, etc. The only downfall is that they're a bit noisy (as compared to road tyres), but it is to be expected. I drove a little gravel as well, and they felt perfect. I have absolutely no complaints, and they were very cheap.
I get 8mm extra height (and you notice it), and the speed is now about 100% accurate to GPS speed, which is nice. The car feels perfect with this up-size.
I would recommend these tyres on a 1st generation X3 if you plan on going off-road. Else, stick with the road tyres.
