What rims are these?

I was just wondering if anyone could tell me what these rims came from and what kind of offset I need for my 88 e30

What width are they? If they are 7", you'd need about 10-15mm spacer, and more if the wheel is wider.

While doing some random surfing, I noticed a few sets of similar-looking rims on E36/E46 cars on wreckedexotics.com -- like this one, this one, and this one.

Both looks like BMW Style 42's, composite on the sedan and two-piece on the wagon.
