Searched through treff (http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/ <-bookmark that) twice and now am convinced you're right they're style 50s. By the looks of things you have the E60 ones in the add. The offset of 20 is going to be tight but they will fit. Your fronts will be pretty much flush, when those winters wear out I recommend putting 205/55s on there but I would bank that you will be ok. Is your vehicle lowered at all? Spacers will make your (almost) issue worse, so you don't want those.

I'd pull the trigger for 300$ However judging by the 2nd photo I doubt you have much more than 5-6/32 of tread left, so you'll get 1 season out of those WS-50s and need new ones next year. They aren't going to be awesome this year but should get you through it.

Like I said, they are pretty flush but look good on the car for a winter setup. Great find at a great price.
