It has to just be the angle. No way they'd add the cost of making the wheel just a wee bit different for almost no reason.
it's not the angle or concavity, believe it or not, bmw did make 2 different wheels... why?

219m spokes start thin/sharp from the hub n gradually get wide/flat 2wards the rim edge. 219s hav a thicker lip too.
260m spokes r basically thin in size from hub 2 rim edge.
also, both hubs r slightly different in design as well. in turn, 219m look beefy n strong where as 260m look light n sporty.

i prefer na spec
