What is the name of this wheel?

I was on the freeway the other week and I saw a new 3 series driving by with these wheels that looked seemed to be thick 5-spoke. The unique thing about them was that they caved in, as in when the wheels were rotating the rims created a conical vortex looking shape. Does anyone know what these are? After-market? A BMW rim?

Thanks

Possibly it was the Style 189 wheel, which is standard on the sport package 335i coupe.

If not, search through the other wheels there, ad I bet you'll find it, if it was a factory wheel.

Do you know what I am talking about though? Have you seen the car in action with the wheel spinning and it looks like the rim is concave?

Sorry, no I do not. Those wheels are on the 3 series, and have fat concave 5 spoke. I thought they were the ones you were describing. :iono:
