Any concerns for my tires having a load rating of 98 instead of 102? The Michelin MXM4s are 98, but 102 is recommended. A load rating of 1,653lbs vs. 1,874lbs (per tire) / 6,612lbs vs. 7,496lbs (per four tires) doesn't seem like a big deal to me as I can't imagine even coming close to loading the X3 that much. The Michelin MXM4 is also off-program (not BMW tested) but that also doesn't seem to be a big deal and shouldn't impact the warranty. And, any thoughts on going to a 255/45-19? I'm fine increasing the width but I don't want to mess with the height of the tire, even if it's just 1/4". That's assuming it fits ok (it was Discount Tire's recommendation).
