Proflyer is on a distinguished road
I'm in denver and run the M wheels in the summer and the factory 18's in the winter with snow/ice tires (no studs). 255/55/18. Never had an issue. I've looked into lifts etc. but the bottom line is an X5 is pretty low no matter what you do. It's very capable off-road and does incredible until ground clearance becomes an issue. Adding 1" of tire size only lifts you up .5" and that just not enough to matter. I've plowed through 12" of fresh on Vail pass with the snow tires and it's amazing. For the best of both worlds you need two sets of wheels/tires.
