kspark is on a distinguished road
Nice work with the fenders, makes a big difference.

I put 2k miles on my X5 over the last week. 8 mountain passes and a few hundred miles off-road as well as snow and ice let me properly test out the tire setup.

Quite happy with the Wildpeaks. They performed well in the snow and made a HUGE improvement on trails compared to 19s and stock Bridgestones.

I did find the limit of the X5 while off roading though.

A few miles of rough stuff and my car developed a surging idle and I smelled something odd... maybe brakes or torque converter? No idea what else it could be. I had DSC off. After I let her rest for a few hours, the surging idle was gone and it drove perfectly again. But the BMW made it clear to me it prefers to be on pavement or gravel.

It won't go everywhere a Tacoma can, but it's a great trail ride.
