Hub adaptor, about 30mm thick chunk of billet with it's own studs.
Illegal in most states (including Vic).
Your call on fitting them, some people have had problems, some haven't, some swear by them, some say they are dangerous.
Can usually find a set on Ebay, and most tyre/rim joints should be able to point you in the right direction if they don't stock them themselves.

You can buy BA 17" in pre AU offset so why bother with adapters.

you can get the BA XR rims, BF GTP rims in E-series offset (that ive seen)

BF GTP 18s cost $1850 with rubber
19s = $2400 with rubber

so the 17s should be around $1300 ish
