These are wheels from an e39 540 sport wagon from 2003. Does anyone know the style number? I have no idea if these are oem or aftermarket. Staggered at 19.5 x 9.5 and 19.5 x 10,5.

No style number. Those are fakes. Do a search here.

Hi,

The only 19 inch wheels that were oem fitment in the E39 range were on the Alpina B10 V8S model. If you opted to have a new BMW uprated to have wheels from one of the high end BMW tuners like AC Schnitzer, Hartge, Racing Dynamics, Hamann etc, then they did their own 19 inch wheels.

The ones you are asking about are not genuine BMW E39 oem fitment wheels. Look on the back of them for any identifying brand name as they're likely to be budget aftermarket wheels. With 10.5 rear wheel width, they 'could' be a higher quality aftermarket brand wheel or might even be 2/3 piece wheels. Have a closer look at them and also maybe have a local reputable wheel dealer take a look for you as well.

Cheers, Dennis!
