Probably all over....

I took a look at the backside of some stock 328i rims I had in the backyard and all they say is BMW and the part number, not where they're actually made. BMW use to contract with BBS to make a lot of their rims but in the '90s and today they probably get them from several sources. They would still have to build to BMW specs though. Probably the same source that makes Audi, Volvo, Saab wheels could make them for BMW.

They get made all over the world. Just as many other things that go on the car, BMW simply buys them from specialists. Some may be made in Italy, others in Germany, I know that Superior Industries in the US makes factory alloy wheels for BMW. They come from all over the place.
