I have a set of ultra rare impul silhouette wheels in 17x8 and 17x9 staggered dimension. These wheels were run on the nissan GT- R race cars in japan by Impul. An estimated 30 sets were ever produced. If interested these wheels still have tires on them 205-45-17 all around. The fronts need replacing soon but rears have alot of life left. These wheels are straight and true. With only a few imperfections expected from used wheels however never bothered me enough to even bother refinishing them back to 100%
5X114.3 and 4X114.3 (typical for japanese wheels)
ET 30 fronts
ET 36 rears
This is with 25 mm adapters on a mk4

I dont have a set of IMPUL's, but i wonder how close a BBS RC centerplate would come to working with these... The centernut is fairly easy to get done, the other piece, not so easy...
The centre nuts come up on Yahoo japan auctions every now and again so have a look there, but personally I would look for Impul R1 nuts as seen on the wheels above as they are more common and fit the threads perfect.
The centre cover can be fairly easily made out of alloy by someone with lathe skills
if these were in the UK I would have them in a heartbeat, GLWS
