Can anyone help ID my wheel style?

I'm not the first owner of this car, so I don't know if these were the original wheels but I assume so (given there are no mods anywhere else on the car it seems quite likely nobody has fiddled with it so far), but despite scouring resources like bmwstylewheels.com I haven't found what looks like a match..

They're 18"s (currently running 245/45R18 all round, non-staggered wheels):

This is mostly idle curiosity with a side off don't-want-to-take-them-off-to-check-the-offset-because-I'm-lazy.. while I peruse wheel options

They are 613M, the standard LCI M-Sport wheel

Thanks Brad! I don't know why I struggled to find that

It's a 'square' setup on my car (245 all around) so I wonder if it's 8J both ends over here.

Hi!

On touring you can use only square setup with 18" or 19", but with 20" you can use wider wheels at back. It has something to do with position with air dumper clearance.

Oh that's brilliant info to know (which I hadn't seen anywhere else yet either), thank you Borut!

Probably saved me an expensive mistake there my preference is for 19" wheels (same as on my E64) for weight and the fact that tyres are 25% cheaper

Ahh interesting, I had noticed that the 18" and 19" options weren't staggered but the 20" option was. The 20" wheels have the same offset and width with the same width tyres so it must be something to do with the inner lip location on the staggered wheels which is 17.3mm further in with the staggered 19" wheels

I do remember seeing some people have put staggered stock wheels on their F11 so it must be something like a tolerance thing, just like how we often put wider wheels that sit in the arch more aggressively than what a manufacturer will do.
