What wheels are these?

Long story short, my neighbour saw that I bought a new bmw and said he had a spare pair of wheels that he had on his wife's E90 that he would sell me. I looked at them but had trouble identifying what they were so I said I'll let him know in a couple of days. If anyone could help me identify what these are I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

Only a spare pair? They're 18x8 which is probably the same size you have on your car already, and given they're Chinese and likely cast (not flow-formed or forged) wheels, they'd probably be a downgrade from your OEM wheels. Also, afaik, the offsets for E9X wheels are different from F3X; I can't make out what the offset is in the pic. Could potentially Have fitment issues. Hard pass.

I meant set. Also the offset is +35.

I was thinking about using them as a winter set. But thanks for the information.

I agree that it looks like Merc replicas.

I had an e90 and I changed my rims to other OEM ones, and I don't recall seeing something like these.

Garage List
Plus E series used M12 lug bolts while F series uses M14

Holes in wheels may or may not be big enough for M14 lug bolts

Just ask the neighbor if you can test fit one, it'll take 10 minutes. You'll find out right away if the bolts fit (not uncommon for aftermarket wheels to be m14 even if they were on an m12 bolt car) and if the offset clears suspension/fenders. If you like them and the price is right, id say they would make a fine winter setup.

That's exactly what I thought when I saw them, they look like the rims my buddy had on his c350 but he assured me it was on his wife's 2006 330i.
