Anyone out there with a spare tire for his 19s? Please let us know the website to order it and the part number if possible. Thanks
The X6 spare wheel is an 18 wheel, and has plenty of brake clearance. If you search the threads, you will find the BMW part number for that wheel, because I remember seeing it in an earlier thread, and included it too. I used a Bridgestone T145/70-18 from Tire Rack. This tire gave very close to the factory OD for the rear tire, which is what you want to match due to rear differential consideration. You wont see the compact spare tires listed, just call and ask.
