    tire rotation for x

    for 2017 mx 90d as usual, checked the forum before posting, found a few posts on s and 3, not much on x. understandably because there is no rotation for oem tires since they are asymmetric. however, i switched to 265s on 9" rims all around (no towing ever) as a couple other folks here...so...

    The Real Question, It Is Not The Total Miles

    though i did some search before posting my question on range and range math, i found and read lot more stuff on the issue. and as pointed by many, it is futile to reconcile battery meter, range, wh/mi etc... and i am also not concerned about what the range should be (epa track, rated, etc.). if...

    car- 21-month old 2017 MX, 90D, 19500 miles, OAT 70-75, ac setting 73. from day 1, i have felt that i am not getting enough range, at times barely 130 miles when the energy meter goes red (<40 miles remaining). since most of my driving is local, this has not been an issue but the numbers have...

    Non-staggered for Model X

    i changed over to all 265/45 all around (MX 90D) based on encouragement and info provided in this post and DCGOO...i bought the rims (9" OEM) and tpms from the sources recommended here...very happy with both transactions. as added info, my reason to go 265 all around was to get run-flats as i...
