M68 offset

I was looking at a set of used M68s, size 8Jx17 and 8.5Jx17. However, when looking for the offset, I cannot find an "ET" stamped anywhere on the wheels. They are stamped BMW, so they look OEM. On each wheel, after the wheel diameter (17) there is a stamp that says "EH2." Does anyone know if "EH" is the offset? I've never heard of an offset that aggressive. Thanks.

Is that the offset for all 17" M68s?

That ET25 looks like the M3 version.

There are M3 m68s out there. The factory M68 non-M set is a staggered set.
