    I have bought a Model X75D and I live in Oregon. I do a lot of off-road driving in the mountains. There is a lot of ice and snow. The alternative for me was a Jeep Cherokee Rubicon, but I did not want to wait for the new Jeep in December, so I got this Model X.

    I wonder if anyone has put larger off road tires on the Model X, and perhaps a lift to make the car more off road capable.

    Unfortunately, that is just an artists conception. But yes, that is essentially what I am after...

    As far as tires go, I would check out the ACHILLESĀ® - DESERT HAWK UHP. There is some noise to them

    Thanks for the suggestion, will check them out. I was looking for a bit more aggressive and larger tire, but I am getting the impression that this is impossible to do with the Model X.

    if its aggressive you want. check the Super Swamper 38.5X13.50-15 Tire, TSL Bogger - B-152

    kind of ironic since they were initially made for jeep.

    Would they fit? What would I have to do in terms of modding the car to get that to work?

    I would try Nitto's ! super quiet.. nice roll resistance and minimal wear. I have had them on three diff. SUV's and work flawlessly. Let us know what you ended up doing ?
