they're aftermarket.....or I was told they are. I wanted to find out the rim style. are they actually OE BMW rims?

I'm not a tires and rims guy..... I'm not even sure if i got the bolt pattern right.

as for the title, would be nicer to have Rim make/model, and tire make/model (got the tires)

Anyway if they actually are stock BMW rims I feel really stupid right now. but in my defense I was looking at the little red/blue IIM(or whatever) logo. not the BMW center caps.

They look like the style bmw used on the 7 series in the late 90's, I've seen 8 series coupes with them too.

The 5x120mm bolt pattern wont work on the mn12, nor would they work with a hubswap.

There is an aftermarket company that makes all BMW wheels.I do not recall which but some of the older cars have the company initials or logo cast/stamped in the back of the wheel.
