135/70 tire fit on 5" wheel

I am anyway concerned that the 135 section tyre is too "thin" for the 5j X6 wheel as it is outside its approved maximum width range .
A 125/70 tyre is simply far too "thin" for the X6 wheel and should absolutely not be recommended as even relatively low lateral loads may pull the bead away from the tyre rim and cause rapid deflation.
A 145/70 tyre is the smallest permitted tyre size that can be stretched onto a 5J X6 it should be either that or find a thinner compatible wheel to take the 135/70 or 125/70 space saver tyre.
Not sure where you got your fitment specs, but the 135 flushes out with the rim exactly when mounted. It does not appear "stretched" at all. Looks like a good fit to me, though the 145 would be slightly better.
