Looks like the design is from 7-series Radial spoke 252 (size 19 inch), but the one in picture is 17 inch.Im guessing some kind of replica.

The design sure looks like the OEM style 252 from the 7 series F01 and 5 series GT F07, but those are 19", so I guess the once in the pic are reps of the 252.
