Have these two rims picked out for my project which will be arctic white with a black GS stripe.

Both sets 17x9.5 ..... Which ones you all would think would look best on the car?

Yeah was thinking ZR1's be better but having a hard time finding them in NON deep or dished style. I prefer the non dished style ones

I never thought of anything else but the 11" rims in the back but if you don't want that look you could get some used A molds and powder coat them.

It is just I have brand new tires 275/40/17's already mounted on my stock 90 rims. Thats why I am choosing 9.5's front and rear.

Thats a very good reason. I'm waiting tell I need to replace my tires before I get a new set of wheels. Like you I just can't justify not using these tires for a little different look for my car.

Nice car .... I'm not a big fan of the hash marks so those won't be added to mine.

I thinks I found a set on that auction site which is about a hour from me and they want 499.00 for the set and 20.00 a tire to mount.

I had thought about "A" molds but seem pretty hard to find and after they cost off powder coating etc and the fact my car will just be a daily driver, I think the 499.00 set is well suited for the car. Plus I thought "A" molds were 17x8.5 and 17x11

The '89 (taken a few years back) with BLK replica wheels at the time. I'm currently running a set of Y2K 'vette rims and donuts.

I would go with what you want versus the status quo. I like the black Z06 rims on the other white one posted above.
