Help me identify this wheel please.

I am uncertain whether it is an authentic BMW wheel or not.



Dimensions according to the shop's website: 17x7.5 ET37

This one as well please. Thanks!



Specs say: 17x8 ET35

I think the ET35 is a typo because I don't ever recall BMW having a wheel with ET35 offset.

The second one seems to be Style 285, and the first one looks OEM, but I can't find the exact number. There are three similar wheels, but none are exactly the same. Do you have a link to the vendor's site for the first set of wheels?

http://www.lptire.com/mag/3773/%E0%B...B8%97%E0%B9%89

Does that work??? That link is really weird...

Anyways, here's one more for the homepage of the site: http://www.lptire.com/

Click the second tab up top (grey tabs), then click the link in the box at the left with the word "BMW" in it. Next, click on the third tab in the second row of tabs (black tabs) to go to the used wheels page. The wheel is in the middle column; scroll down to around the middle of the page.

I'd be more concerned with that first wheel being a knock off.... there are a lot out there. This may/may not mean anything but the front of that rim is 100% blank, no stamp, nada

http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/396

closest thing i could find.

Actually, it is Style 394:

http://bmwfans.info/parts-catalog/F3...poke_394_17_2/

...but the thumbnail image in the "BMW wheel styles" page is incorrect http://www.bmwstylewheels.com/bmw/394

I saw it on a stock F30 in real life today, and I have to say it looked really bland... like extremely "vanilla".
