What is it that i like in some X6's?

I am in the market for a pre-owned X6. (Feel free to PM me if you are selling one)

I've been trying to figure out why some X6's looked awesome, and others not...I have a sneaky suspicion it's the tires.

I think I like the style 336 Y spoke wheels. They do fill the gap between the fender and the wheel.

I believe that is a 20" wheel, and the standard wheel is 18", is that correct?

Is the overall diameter of the tire also bigger on a 20" wheel, or is the tire just thinner making the total, creating an illusion that the tire is bigger?

Are the 336 Y spoke wheels also wider than regular tires?

Total diameter is the same (or very, very close) no matter the wheel size (assuming you are talking about OEM options). The bigger the wheel, the lower the profile of the tire.

thank you very much. It must be an illusion for me then. the bigger wheels do look bigger overall to me.
