Identification and appraisal of wheels on the car I just bought

Hi everyone. First post here! I am a previous owner of a 1995 M3, and now the happy owner of a 2006 330i. It needs some work but I am excited to see where it takes me. The car came with aftermarket wheels and I am having a hard time identifying them. Can anyone suggest a brand? They are a type of 3-piece with a black rim and a machined finish on the face. The sides of the spokes are also painted black. I am not sure if I want to keep them so I am also looking for an appraisal as well!

Are you sure that there 3 piece or do you just think that because they have bolts or what seems to be bolts. Just asking in order to clarify.

Doesn't look like a well known model. You probably have some markings on the inside of the rim.

Take the wheels off and look in the barrel and behind the face to see if you can find any markings, sizing...

I'd be willing to bet they are not 2 or 3 piece.

+1

I'd guess they're pretty cheap wheels. Hopefully someone from TireRack can come in and identify it.
