I don’t know, but these rims are the factory OEM alloys for e21 cars. They’re not Alpina turbines, which were manufactured by Ronal, but Alpina-style turbines.

It sez "Alot", like Jim Carrey's character Lloyd said to Mary "Samsonite" Swanson in the climax scene of the Cult Classic film Dumb and Dumber

It's actually pretty damn amazing that these are still available - like the early 02 alloys (I really need to get a set before they are NLA)! But you can't get license plate lamps LOL

 

@dynosoar1 I didn't know they made the turbines for E21's in 14" - unless they were a non-OEM make?

No OEM e21 14”ers were made. But is it possible there was an Alpina-style OEM rim made for the e30? I realize the bottlecap alloys are the quintessential e30 OEM alloy. I simply don’t know anything about e30’s.

 

But I do know that before the e21 was offered with the Alpina-style rim, it was offered with a 5 1/2” version of the late OEM ‘02 alloy (also known as the turbo-style alloy).

That's the manufacturer's mark.  Alu?  I don't recognise it, but, that's who actually made the wheel.
