Wheel Identification Help

For the life of me, I cannot figure out what the name of these wheels are.

The cleaner set without the tire on it came off my previous e34. I bent a wheel and have been looking for a replacement of either just that one, or a few of them.

I found the second set online, picked them up, only to notice that when I got home, the center cap size was different.

The nicer ones have "FOMB" and "Made in Italy" stamped on the back.
The crappy ones have ""Made in China" stamped on the back and had a center cap that said Miglia 1000. I even searched for hours for that name and I came up with VERY few hits to the same style wheel.

I need help figuring out what each of these wheels are. THANKS!!

Any of the wheels stamped with FOMB are miglia wheels and should have been one with the 1000 miglia cap. the "made in china" ones must be bootlegs of the miglia style. on the wheels that are nicer with FOMB stamped on them look for any model numbers that begin with MM or something like that.

FOMB is the italian casting company who makes Mille Miglia wheels. I think they are out of business anymore.

From another forum I found that the "Made in China" are knock-offs of the FOMB Mille Miglia 1000. The cleaner, nicer ones are Fox Racing Evo 6.
