Default What kind of wheels are these?

Came off a 242.

Any ideas?
No real markings on the wheel and it didn't come with center caps.

It appears they are knock offs of this BMW BBS ( image 27 of 30 looks like the original design )

The threaded nut/center cap arrangement looks just like the ASA JS1 set up, but I couldn't find an ASA wheel like it(whatever that means, no idea where to find a complete list of older ASA wheels). I don't recall where but i read once that ASA(Korea) was (one of or the first company?) licensed by BBS, after an agreement in 1990 (no idea if those are even ASA)
