Help with Identifying Factory Wheels

I found these wheels locally but the person selling them had them removed at they're shop from a customer who longer wanted them. They look similar to a few models and they said there's a stamp confirming 5x120 on the inside.

Can anyone help with identification of these wheels?

BTW it's a heck of a deal at $125 for the 4

Sorry I don't recognize them. I didn't see them on bmwstylewheels.com either but I may have missed them looking too quickly.
If you have a clue what they came off you can look in one of the part databases like realoem.com.
If you have access to a wheel you can check the rest of the info stamped on it, BMW uses 11 digit part numbers.
If it turns out these are aftermarket (makes more sense at $125 for the set) info stamped on them will be your bet to ID them.

Thanks for trying to help! I may ha e to make the drive to the shop if they're not giving any further photos.

I exhausted the wheel resources as, well. They look close to a few but the spacing on the spokes is wider.

OE is Original Equipment aka 'BMW Original Parts' aka 'What you buy at the BMW dealer with a BMW label'

OEM is Original Equipment Manufacturer... EITHER the company that made the OE part or.... A part this is identical to the OE part, but is sold by the OEM under their own label


OEM is not what BMW sells
