x6m and x5m have identical hub sizes =) 74mm in front and 72.5 in back. You can swap wheels between the cars no problem without the need for centering rings.

This has been confirmed in several threads in this forum.

Thanks to the great information from Trips. 15mm H&R spacers up front and 15mm Rogue spacer in back. With the stock wheels, you could do an 18mm in the rear. But when I put my summer 215 wheels on, they stick out. With the 15mm it is perfect. I will order the springs from IND next week.
1st pic is 215 on front without spacer.
2nd pic is 215 on front with spacer
3rd pic is 215 on rear without spacer
4th pic is 215 on rear with spacer
5th pic is standard wheel on rear with spacer
6th pic is standard wheel on rear without spacer
Sorry I did not take them in exactly the same place. I was freezing.

Looks like 15's are the way to go all the way around.

I really like how the wheels fill the fenders right now. I think even 18mm may work in the back.

Big, I haven't ordered the p40L's yet, might just roll on the stockers for this season. Call me crazy, but the stock rims are really starting to grow on me.

Here are the pictures with the 215 summer tires on. I just could not wait any more. I really hope it does not snow again.
The rear tires are much wider in real life that the picture gives it credit. This is with a 15 mm spacer. You can see the rear 215 with the spacer is right at the end of the wheel arch.

Cool! Is the difference worth the time and effort? Hmm...

Also, what did you do with the OEM wheels? I want to get the X6M wheels on my X5M, but would have to buy them..bah

Looks awesome. Lol if those pics don't do justice to the width of your rear tires then they must look lamborghini wide in person I like your taste in removing the rear badges, looks much cleaner that way.
