Name these rims please

I bought rims for my car, but they are missing all of the center caps. I want to buy center caps, but have no idea what the rims are from. They might be from a BMW or VW etc.
Anyhow. If someone can identify them, so I know what center caps to buy that would be great. I know there are different style systems to hold the caps on, so I need to know what style I need.
Here's the stats:
They are 4 lug (4x114.3)
They are 15 inch. I think 15x6.5 (that's what is on the rim anyhow)

And here are some pics. If someone could give me the year and model they came from that would be mint!




Thanks!

I have all of the numbers and everything off of the rims, but that doesn't help me buy center caps. The center cap part numbers aren't the same as the rim part numbers. Unless there is a website that I can find out what my rims are from by using the part numbers. All the center caps I find for sale say "bbs center caps from 88-91 3 series BMW" etc. I have no idea what my rims are from, so I don't know what year/model to buy center caps for.
I think the 3 series and the 5&6 series came with simalar looking rims, but have a different locking system for the center caps.

4 x 114.3 is the fitment for older jap cars, like 240sx's and AE86's. So i'd guess maybe they're Infiniti rims, since i know Infiniti had a BBS rim very similar to these, only i'm not sure what the size was!
