I have no affiliation with the seller, I just found these while browsing and thought that I would pass it on over here, cause these wheels are so sought after. BTW, they are E38 fitment so no rings required for non-E39, but won't fit E39. Asking price is steep, but you know what they say....

Im sorry but style 5's prices have turned into a joke, last year these would have been worth 1200max. Now 2200? Their nice but way over priced!

No, they were never worth that little man. When I bought my set in 2008 they were going for over 2000.

The 17s shot up a bit, but the non-staggered ones are still only worth $700-800 in mint shape. Staggered 17s, maybe $1000-1200. But staggered 18s, which were produced like 1 set for every 2500 17" sets? Yeah, always over $2k.

Wow, thanks for the clear up Jay, I'm still surprised at how much their worth, it seems unreal. So would it be fair to say that staggered 18" style 5's are one of the priciest oem wheels you can buy used from bmw?

Interesting thought, maybe! I've seen 20s from newer 7s go for less.

Nope, those are E38 spec (72.56 hub). You'd need to either have these bored out to 74.1 by a machine shop or find the even rarer E39 version of the wheel.
