Recognize these rims?

I am looking at getting a spare set of rims and the seller claims they're oem off a e39. I can't seem to find them on the style chart. Thanks in advance.

They dont look like OE wheels from e39.
Also, the hub is different on e39 from e46, so you will need adapters to fit them.
Then the offset is pretty low on e39s, the wheels may stick out of the fender if you do get the adapters to fit them in your e46.

check here to get more information on BMW wheels.

Thanks for the response. Do you think they're BMW at all?
Thats the chart I used before and I couldn't seem to find them.

Those are Mille Miglias. I had a set of these in 17s on an e34 and they got bent. They were not bent on the rims but rather bent from either the center or the spokes!!

Wow, the faces got bent? That's pretty bad!

OP, those are definitely not E39 wheels, and they would have a larger center bore than the E46. Not to mention, widths and offsets aren't ideal in most cases for the E39.

Yeah, they came with the car and I wanted a set of Racing Dynamics at the time so while I saved and looked for a set, I used the MM since the previous owner bought them new and they were less than a year old. 2 out of the 4 got bent after about a year and a half. I do not think potholes had anything to do with it since the lips were perfectly fine.
