Heard that if you run these cars without non star rated tyres can cause the clunking .Worth checking ? BMW approved tyres have a star on the sidewall.

I've checked the tyres they are approved from BMW for this model , when I listen closely
It does feel like the drive shaft slightly slipping at low speed or the part that turns it Not sure & there's seems to be like what I can only explain is a sound that sounds like a police siren when excelerating somebody mentioned its a common problem with the x3 bug I don't know !
