Help ID these wheels?? e34??

I am heading on a trip tomorrow, and found these wheels for sale locally. I like the look, and these don't seem to be too common. I am searhcing for a set of stock BMW 17"s for my 525 e34.

Does anyone know what model this wheel is from? I thought 850i, but im not sure that right..

Thanks for you help in advance

Just wanted to update this post... I was able to buy these wheels. Turns out they are AZEV Type B's that were on a '91 M5. They are in really good shape aside from a minor repiar on 1 wheel. these 17's should look pretty good on my 92 525i

They didn't have locking center caps like the AZEV's though...
