You don't mention wether-or-not your CE has the Z51 option, and it does make a difference.  I have a spec sheet from Mirrock Corvette (mirrockcorvette.com) that shows that the front wheels on a std suspension CE are 17x8.5 with a +56mm offset, and the rear wheels on a std suspension CE are 17x9.5 with a +56mm offset; for the Z51 option, all 4 wheels are 17x9.5 with a +56mm offset;  note that the tire size is affected by the wheel size, on std CE Corvettes.
I suspect it will be difficult, if not impossible to find new "factory" wheels for you car, but there are several after-market companies that manufacture replica-wheels that will create the stock look you may be after;  just make sure that the new wheels are the right specs for your car.
Good luck

A few years back I had a bent wheel and found a completely refurbished wheel at Midwest Wheel and Tire, 1967 Wooslee DR, Troy Michigan. 1-800-742-9877. They were most helpful and shipped directly. Cost then for a 1991 painted "sawblade" was $199.00. They also have a website.

I was also able to get my other rims refurbished for a reasonable cost. I am in Ontario Canada, but if you ask around at tire shops or car dealers or even the internet you can probably find a refurbisher near you.

Good Luck
