BMW 2009 X5 Tire Help

I recently sold my perfect 2002 BMW 530i and regret it but needed an SUV.
I bought the x5 knowing the dealer had changed the wheels to x5 rims and run flat tires from a 2015 x 5 with the Honeycomb Pattern.

They are very load and ride rough, the tmp sensor says its failing. A mechanic think I also have a bar rear drive shaft.

Any help would be appreciated.

Did you do an inspection prior to purchasing the x5? That should have been caught if so.

I am sure you can do a quick search on the x5 forum and see what the other X5 owners are running as their tire setup for a quieter ride.

Also take a look at a diy for the rear drive shaft, it could save you some money tackling the project on your own.

What's your question? Are you looking for tire brand/model suggestions? Either way, you're in the wrong forum.

I have an e70 also, If tires appear good then you probably either have a bubble or those ones have a different size center hub bore than any other bmw so you might need hubcentric rings. I wound up getting my niche veronas bored out
