OEM wheels have a lot of markings on the spokes on the backside with the offset, width, part number, etc.

I'd like to know why and how the wheels were remanufactured. Straightened? Repainted? Welded?

Well that I can't answer this place claims they get 1500 wheels a day and that they go in and out fast I'm sure they were sand blasted and painted as he said allow 2 days for paint likely to fix any curb rash and possibly bends? I'm no expert but they all look great I can say just wanted to verify that these were OEM with the stamps that are showing otherwise you can't distinguish by looking from a new 18x8 style 67 part # 36112229950 four fronts

Thanks I got them from hubcaphaven.com they call themselves HH Auto when they answer the phone...? I googled the part # of the wheel and they hit, plus happened to have four fronts in stock.

I've never seen the inside of those ///M wheels so I cannot say about them, but the "stamps" you have there sure don't look like real OE stamps.

Is there no dependency on the model and year where rims are concerned?

Your original post referred to OEM authenticity.

"I bought these remanufactured from the web, wondering if this stamp def means OEM? Thanks"

The link takes you to a realoem web page for a 330xi for your information so you can look for the wheels you have and compare them with the ones listed.

My question was about whether you needed to know the model and year of the vehicle in order to identify appropriate OEM wheels for the vehicle because you didn't provide any such information in your original posting. Logic, and the options on teh realoem website, suggest that you might.
