Are these BMW OEM Reps?

Hi, Im still on the hunt for some suitable "OEM looking" 19's for my e90.

Ive seen these...they look kinda OEM, was wondering if they are reps? if so what style?? I've looked long and hard online but couldnt find them listed anywhere so may be aftermarket.

I dont mind buying reps but these are a bit lower than ideal offset and the rears are a little narrower than id ideally like.
(specs are 19x8.5 square setup with ET20 offset for those interested)

Anyone know if these are an OEM copy of something?

Tks

I could just buy these reps as they are but...

1) the front rims would stick out 20mm wider from stock, would this rub with a 235/35/19 tyre? (Im a pre-LCI e90)

2) id want to run a 265/30/19 tyre on the back to get the total diameter i want, is that too baggy for an 8.5 inch rim?

Bump....

Is a 20mm extend on the front gonna be too wide?
Is 265/30/19 too baggy on a 8.5 rim?
Anyone seen these for sale in higher offset than ET20?

8.5+20 should fit. You will need spacers in the rear or else it will look weird.

Don't stagger tires on square rims. Just run 235/35/19 all around.

Are you sure about that? Under that scenario

I'd be going from....

Front 18x8 ET37 to 19.8.5 ET20 = 11mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 23mm

Rear 18x8.5 ET34 to 19x8.3 ET20 = 14mm MORE clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 14mm


I tinhk the extra 14mm with at back will work fine, its the extra 23mm up front Im concerned will create unbearable rubbing.

Front will be pretty flush. Are you lowered?

only about 1 inch....Eibach Prokit springs on M-Sport shocks.

Ive read in other threads that stock pre-LCI's on stock 18's can take about 12-15mm spacers in front and 15-20mm spacers in back... So im tinhking anything sticking out further than 15mm at front is going to cause me issues

Those wheels aren't Oem. Those wheels are named something like "Concept CS" and made for some BMW concept car. I have seen one E91 with those wheels, but size was 18x8.5 et20 and 9.5 et20.

As for fitment 19x8.5 et20 at front will work.

For the rear you definitely need spacers like 12-15mm, So it will match the front better. You might need slight fender roll, but i doubt since you aren't that low and if you go 235/35 allround. That will give more clearance to back.

The 265/30 is too big to 8.5 and will look funny.
