Lowering after plus sizing wheels is normally just for looks only. When you lower the sidewall thickness with a lower profile tire the gap between the tire and the fender looks bigger, it's an optical illusion.

You will see "BMW" and a BMW part number cast into the wheels, normally on the back of the wheel, if it's OEM. The Ellipsoids have the number cast on the front under the center cap.
Straight lines are for fast cars...turns are for fast drivers
'04 M3 - track
'06 650i Cab - daily driver
'02 Highlander - kid hauler
'01 330Ci - winter beater
