I have a X5 4.4. It has Michelin 255/55 R18 MXV4 tires all around. I now have a tack in one of them and it looks a little low on air.


Question:


(1) I noticed that the spare is a 235/65 R17. Does this sound right? Will this damage my car if I drive on it.


(2) Should I try to plug the tire or go ahead an pay for a replacement?


Thanks everyone. I've enjoyed reading this forum.

the height of the tire is practically the same (.51mm difference) go ahead and put on your spare and get the other tire fixed. you will have safe traveling since it is a full size spare instead of a donut

From bmwusa.com --

I am with BMW of North America, LLC and your Owners' Circle inquiry has
been forwarded to me for a response. All X5s come equipped with the
same spare tire, no matter what wheels or package are on the vehicle.
When BMW evaluated the possibility of using different spare sizes, we
found the smaller wheel to require less space, thus increasing the trunk
volume. If you should happen to need to use the spare, it will work
with your vehicle. Please let us know if there is anything else we can
help you with.
