I sold my 2010 335d with 140K to buy an X2; reliability in it was not as good as other BMWs. BMW engines...

They will fit, but are really too big. 225/40R18 is the nominal size. If 245 width, you need to go to a /35 profile.

While ctuna and james are correct in that 100 miles is too far to really pull in an FM station, a couple things (not usually of interest) is height of antenna, and atmospheric conditions.

Your BMW already has a booster in it. What you are talking about won't work. The problem is that the BMW's antenna is tiny and kind of non-directional. A directional antenna (like a TV antenna)...

Much ado about nothing

It died away because it wasn't important.

Only real problem was when some dodo overfilled when doing an oil change.

for me, the size and the price difference - $15-$20K more for the X3M/X4M - made the difference pretty obvious.

Every car has warts; gotta choose one that fits you best.

225 all round is best. Choose a tire that can be mounted (check specs) on the wider rear wheels.

The general rule is that the TIRE overall diameters not differ more than 1% on xDrive cars. I'm pretty sure that 2% would be ok; nevertheless. A 225/45R17 and 225/55R17 tire differ by more than 2%...
