What type of wheels are these?

I talk to the owner and he said XXr's, but what type. I know xxr are kinda a pos.
Ive had nice wheels on my car before but i want something less expensive. I have a TIAG e90 and want something diff. maybe gold wheels. dont wanna spend to much. 18's and wide stagger setup. Can someone tell me what type of xxr these are and if you know any brand better than xxr that makes this style and not that expensive?

I believe that is the XXR 521.

I also believe there are a few Bimmerpost vendors that may carry a similar styled wheel

Yes those are xxr 521, but.

I recommend Varsstoen ES1 for you http://varrstoen.com/products/es-1/ At size 18inch, They can re-drill those wheels to 5x120 and is pretty much the only one with wide affordable wheels. My set cost me 1000$. I have varsstoen es2.

You have Pre-lci e90 my choice would be ES1 and size 18x9.5 et22 front and 18x10.5 et22 rear. It requires fender roll at rear tho. You get this kinda look. If you want less aggressive front then get et30.

Or go crazy and get 18x10.5 front and rear http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=964117
