OEM wheel markings

Want to purchase 9.5 inch wide rims for the front of my 2002 M3 E46 the tires are 18 inch. This will allow me run a square setup at HPDE track events. Where do I look on my OEM rims to find the part number or code to match the rear 9.5 X 18 rims I already have?

The OE E46 M3 wheels are 8" wide in front and 9" wide in rear, so I don't think you have 9.5" wheels. Or if you do, they're not OE BMW.

The part numbers, etc., are on the back of the wheel. You must remove a wheel to access them.
