Doesn't look like a factory wheel to me. Never seen a factory fake 2-piece rim.

The deeper lug hole might be where the lock would go
But I think the other 4 lug bolts are too short for that wheel

If they are factory wheels, there should be factory part number on them. 996 xxxx etc. Usually on the web, where the other markings are. As the other said, they do not appear factory.

I used to have a milling machine.... but I believe the best way to correct the default is to give them "the ol' floatation test". More expensive, but I've seen too many wheels break.

The BBS factory correct version of that wheel is plentiful on eBay. Prices are all over the place. I got a set of 4 for winter use for $800. My summer set cost about $1,200.

Yes, this wheel is stamped on the backside of a spoke "Made in EU" BBS may be interested to hear about this.
