Why don't you send him a pm and ask to have a look on the inside of the rims.
The specs should be there. If they are still on the car, then ask the tyre size on each rim. This will give you an idea of rim width and whether or not they are staggered 17" or 18". They look like 18" to me. As far as offset goes if they are
a standard BMW rim then it won't be any problem, but if you want a more flush look then I suggest Shane's M3 rims that he has for sale.

They will fit your E90 fine, but they may look tad weak and you wont get any thumbs up from the cool kids

They definitely look like the oem 18's, as Gerry stated just get Ben to check tyre sizes and stamping/cast marks on the hubs of the wheels (he will have to remove to see them most likely)
