What type of BMW wheel is this?

Hey,

Are these OEM BMW Wheels? What type/code are they?

Thanks!

the center hub mass is too big, the angle on the spokes isn't quite right, and as far as I know, BMW has never engraved writing into their rims.

I believe those are style 22 - found on the 98 M3 sedan. the LTW wheels were 5 spoke (style 24 I think)

Correct, 24's were the real, forged LTW wheels, while regular E36 M3's either got 23's or 39's and 22's were the optional four season, non staggered wheels. The OP's picture looks like a 22. I think there were either two versions of the 24, one forged, and one not, or possibly later run E36 M3's offered them as an option.

And if you want a very updated version of all the BMW wheels check out this link (it's in German, but still understandable): http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/
