When you replace the tires, I'd go with 245/50R-18 -- the 245/45s are a couple of sizes too small.

And, since they've been replaced by the Pilot Sport A/S3+, they will be increasingly difficult to find. On the other hand, Michelin says the A/S3+ is similar overall but with improved snow...

You have transposed the widths on the X1 and X3 wheels. The X1 has 18 x 7.5 wheels with 51mm offset, while the 2007 X3 has 18 x 8 with 46mm offset. That means that the inner edge of the X3 wheel is...
