E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Identify this wheel style

Does anyone recognize this wheel style? Supposedly they're BMW wheels, but I've not been able to find a matching style.

Try this web site, if it's a factory wheel they will/should have it.

I'm looking at these wheels as craigslist purchase for winter tires. I checked-out the wheels today and found that they were Rial Salernos. The seller claimed that they had been on a 2007 M6. He graciously let me take one to check the fit on my stock 650, and the only thing that is off is the offset. My stock wheels have an offset of 14, the Rials have an offset of 30. They fit on the back okay, but the tire rubs on the strut in the front.

So, would I be able to use these safely if I bought some 15mm spacers? I've not used spacers before, and I welcome any thoughts or concerns about doing this. The deal is good, so I don't want to pass it up unless this would be an unsafe application.

Thanks!

15 mm spacers plus longer lug bolts will be fine.
Just make sure they are advertised as hub-centric spacers.
Also, Rial makes good wheels.

Thanks for the reply. I was planning to go for the spacers from Burger Tuning, which come with the longer lug bolts.

if you Google posts about Rial Salernos, several mention 5mm longer lugs than stock are needed.
You should mention that when you order your spacers.
