Can you ID these wheels?

Guy is selling a set of wheels that he says are from his E39 M5. He says that they're 18s and are "made by BBS." Has anyone seen this style before? It looks like a deep style 135 somewhat, but there are small depressions at the outside of the spokes that don't seem to match any OE wheel I'm familiar with.

Does anyone know if these are real, or rep, and have any info? I wanted to pick your brains before I bother checking them out. Guy can't tell me offsets or even widths.

no way in hell those were on an e39 m5... and going off the look of them, they are replicas

in addition, just google "BMW OEM wheels" and you can find more links that give all the OEM style names

Failed to add that I've looked at all the styles on bmwstylewheels.com and this doesn't appear to be OE. Just hoping someone can shed some light if they know where they came from.

Re: Can you ID these wheels?

Even if they are replicas or aftermarket they should have the width and offset stamped on the back. Tell the guy to walk into his garage and look on the back of the wheel.
