Mein Auto: 2011 x5
RFT to Cont Extreme Contact. 2011 X5 5.0i

Gary,

My 2011 X5 5.0i with M package has 20" RFT's. I purchased winter tire and wheels (Continental Extreme Contact, staggered on Beyer wheels) to avoid damaging my OEM wheels with the on and off twice yearly. I hate the Beyer wheels and want to run the all weather tires on the OEM wheels all year. Any problem with that? The truck has only 16k miles, so each set has around 8k miles. How many miles should I expect to get from the RFT's with moderate driving?

It would not be a problem to install all-season, non runflat tires on your original wheels. Treadwear is all over the board on the OE tires on the X5. Somewhere in the range of 15,000-25,000 miles seems to be most typical.
