Because the X5 is built in the USA maybe they are made under license in the US?
Google SM wheels see what you find. The markings look very “BMW”, fakes and copies are usually stamped or very poor casting or have ‘BMW’ ground off.
US Ebay might show what genuine alloys markings look like?

Borbet:


Ronal:


So not exclusive to one manufacturer

Do they have a 13 embossed on the front face between two of the bolt holes?

Interesting - I'll have to look and see who made mine!

Love the way the 'fat five' moniker seems to get applied to everything these days rather than the original Ronal Parabols for the D3 Audi A8s 🙄
