is there a way to tell what brand of wheels are on this car for sale?

going to look at this car for sale but these look to me like VMR V710s or another cast wheel. The car is a 3 owner 2011 vehicle with competition package so i'm having a hard time grasping why someone would remove forged wheels for cast.

any feedback is appreciated as I am going in an hour.

trying to figure out the brand and if its forged...

Look like VMR V710's...I have a set, and they have no markings on them at all...

Last I had heard, the ZCP wheels are not forged, despite what BMW says. Not sure if this is true though. I agree those look like VMRs although there are a lot of similar wheels out there.

and there's nothing wrong w/ a cast wheel. I don't think those are VMR either as the VMR spokes are rounder at the end. That wheels also has a little lip but I don't know

They aren't but they are quality cast by BBS..That makes all the difference. I have held the ZCPs in my hand, for a cast wheel, its impressive how light they are
