Identify these wheels

Can any one tell me what these 17" wheels are from origanaly.
Does BMW put out a OEM 17" Wheel or are these aftermarket?

I paid $1400.00 for the set with tires (10% wear )...too much or is that fair ?

those maybe replicas but bmw did make oem rims like that.
$1400 is pretty good for those rims and if it was oem rims then $1400 is really good.

those rims are M Parallel Type 66 from E39 5 series.
to tell if they are real...look on the back of the rim near the centre for the bmw logo and information of the rim stamped into the rim.

Yeah those look like replicas. Not necessarily a horrible thing, although OEM is usually preffered.

thats true...oem would be better but $1400 for wheels and tires is still pretty good since the wheels look perfect. when you putting them on?

You can easily tell that they are replicas because the "M" symbol is missing on the wheel. It just has the square notch where The "M" sticker goes. Nice wheel though. Comes on the m-tech 530's and 540's E39 and looks really good.... or maybe its just the m-tech kit that makes everything you put on an e39 look good
