Have you tried PMing the owner of that car? Or sending that pic to VMR and ask them to verify authenticity.

Looks like 235/35/19 on at least an 8.5 wide, maybe 9 wheel.

Edit: looks like the 718s come in either 19x8.5 or 19x9.5

So I never had any aftermarket wheels on my cars before. How should they be washed, cleaned? I heard a lot of stories about dealerships washing your car after service and jacking up the wheels. Should I tell them not to wash my car? How about at the local hand car wash? Thanks guys.

Those look to be VMR VB3's. The V718's are a little different they don't have a tab for the M logo and the lip is a little different.
