OEM M3 Alloys 18"

Hi guys, Im looking to buy some 18 M3 260 Alloys as a spare set for my M3. I wanted to know if there are any markings on the wheels to distinguish if they are genuine BMW item or copy. Your comments are highly appreciated.

Thanks

Infamous BBS stamping on rear of wheels:

Stats:

Front: 18x8.5" ET29
Tire Size: 245/40-18
Weight: 50.75lbs

Rear: 18x9.5" ET23
Tire Size: 265/40-18
Weight: 52.0lbs

We're looking into a few replacements on wheels at the moment.
I hope this helps.

sorry to jack the thread, but does are the 18's from the E90 same as the ones on E92? reason is because I ordered car with 19, but decided to go with 18s. Dealer will swap their E90 18s for me, but I just wanted to make sure

thanks!

yes, the 19s are bbs too... if i am not wrong there are some non M wheels that are also made by bbs... the style 230 is one of them i think (may be wrong on this though).
