    Heh i meant the ones on the Dub's ive been looking for a "lo pro" AT tire for my 18" rims on my X5... something a little more suited for logging roads than the current street tires.

    BFG makes the AT in a 31.5" 265/65x18 that might fit in your X5 fenders. If not, try looking at Tire rack for sizes like 265/60x18 or 285/60x18 depending on your x5 rim width. I think the x5 is smallish oem tire though, maybe 29" but if so, that's the same as a Discovery 3 oem which is 255/55x19 or 255/60x18. You might try the Nokian website to see what sizes the WRG2 suv comes in. They have some that will fit the x5 just fine and it's a great all year, even in snow, tire.

    example, if you own a rabbit and the top folds down but can stay on the car, you have cabrio, if you have 289 fia cobra and you have that useless rag that snaps over our head and must be removed, you have a soft top.
    The Wolf soft top is actually officially called "Open Top" and can be rolled up with built in retainers along the upper margin. Definitely not a Cabrio, but just as cool in many ways. While there are both 460 and 463 cabrios, the open top is only made in the 461 series as 300GD, 230GE, 250GD, and 290GD. For those who want a 463 open top, maybe we'll make one...

    Both terms are used in the industry; bimini more for boats.
    A vehicle’s worth is not what you put into it, but what it put into you.

    haha what babies!
    For any given word in any given language there are multiple variations or interchangeable terms for the same thing!

    The rims are an odd choice for such a nice vehicle but they're his and only his. He picked them and loves them, that's all that matters!

    ...Quite snarky, I was surprised by the snarkiness and Im a teenager!

    gentleman G WAGONS are already the smallest group of 4x4s being used in USA, lets not argue about small things, but just enjoy them as much as we can . otherwise G WAGOn is hitting the ultimate bling bling title soon.

    take them out enjoy them and post some pics so we non g owners can enjoy them also. we love them.
