BMW X5 Tire History


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody. I am current shopping a BMW X5, 2019. I found a car, good price and options. However, when I take a look at the CarFax history. I found that the tire record keeps coming up:

25000 miles: tire(s) changed

28000 miles: tire mounted/ tire repaired/ tire replaced

30700 miles: tire mounted

37075 miles: tire rotated 

45000 miles: tired repaired/ tire condition and pressure checked

Does this mean anything? Is this something related to a driver's habit or it looks like something wrong with the car? I don't know but can this can an axes problem so the tires are not always parallel?  Please let me know. Thank you all!!!!

Welcome to the Forum

Some things to check, 1st, What wheel set up do you have? if the rears are wider than the fronts ( Staggered setup) then using the correct size tyres from a well known Brand (BMW * rated if possible) is critical to protect the Transfer case and transmission. If the car has same size wheels front and rear you can still get issues if the tyres are mismatched brands.

Looking at the record Tyres changed at 25000 miles is about right for a new set. The tyre repaired remounted at 28000 could be a puncture repair or pot hole damage. Tyre mounted at 30700 again balance or damage repair Tyres rotated at 37075 Not required and shouldn't be done with a staggered set up but at least they are checking at service. 45000 Tyre repaired tyres checked and pressures checked 

With all the tyre damage either the previous owner/owners were unlucky or clumsy check the wheels for signs of crack repair at the rims also buckling. As 45000 was the last check what miles are on it now as the tyres will be close to change, not cheap so a good negotiating point providing the car is in good mechanical and body condition and it is what you want.

Good Luck

Dave
