    X6 e71 rim question

    From my research the stock X6 19 inch rim was 19x9. Will a 18 inch rim fit over the brakes?

    Look at the tire inflation chart on your driver's door/door jamb (or the owners manual). If BMW designed 18" wheels to fit your model's configuration...an 18" tire size will be listed on that tire inflation chart on your door.

    Also the e71 X6 has a split axle hub center bore. The front and rear are NOT the same...the rear is 72.56mm and the front is 74.1mm...so if you 18" wheels fit...make sure that the wheel's center bore is correct for the axle you're mounting the wheel on.

    What about the e71 x6m? Is the rear center bore size the same as regular e71x6’s?

    Yes...the e71 models ALL have the same split axle center bore difference.

    The e70 X5 and e70 X5M are listed separately due to the e70 X5M having a different set up than the other e70 X5 models (it's a split axle center bore difference like the e71 X6 models).
