Mein Auto:
Yesterday my right rear tire popped in a curve while it was raining and I spun into the sidewalk and my rear left rim cracked, I need to get a new wheel but my wheel hub looks bent inwards, does anyone know what component could be broken?

You can see in the second picture that the center part of the wheel broke from the main part of the wheel. You need a new wheel.

Good Lord, you broke out the entire center of the wheel?! Either those are some seriously cheap-a$$ M3 replicas or I don't even want to know the impact speed.

Regardless, there are five suspension links back there to support and locate the spindle. Any one or more (probably more) of them could be broken or bent. With an impact like that--in a direction the suspension is not designed to absorb--there is also the possibility of damage to the shock absorber, axle, and/or final drive. There's also a small but non-zero chance the anti-roll bar was bent and/or ripped from its mounts.

You need to get the car on a lift and fully inspected, including the subframe, by someone who knows BMWs. This is not a DIY repair unless and until you understand what you're up against, and regardless you will need a four-wheel alignment afterwards.

Good luck.
