    E39 M5 Style 65 Wheels Genuine or Replicas?

    Hi guys,
    Please forgive my ignorance but I have an old set of e39 m5 style 65 wheels sitting in my garage and I am not sure if they are genuine or replicas. It says the following on the inside of the wheel: Made in UE / 7.5Jx17 H2 / 004 / ET 20. Also, how much much would you estimate they are worth? Thanks in advance.

    Style 65s only came in 18" for the M5

    So 17" Style 65s are not OEM BMW; they're replicas

    Ahh I figured they were replicas. Any idea what they’re worth?

    Hi,

    Stick them on ebay for a buy now price of say $150 if they're in bad/poor condition, $200 if sort of decent and $275/300 if in great condition. These wheels won't fit a standard M5 most likely due to the size of the OEM brakes, but some non M5 owner might use them for winter/beater wheels. They're not in any great demand in 17 inch as they don't look right in both sizing and non staggered look.

    Cheers, Dennis!
