Mein Auto: '04 M3 / '06 650i Cab
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.
