The pictures in the above post are the wheels that a Craigslist seller had for sale about a year ago in Aberdeen MD.  If you don't mind a long drive, he'd probably sell them (in great condition) for $400 for the set.  No tires.

Craiglist is a PIA sometimes, but I've found some great Corvette parts there.

Good luck

Thanks they look good but at this point it would be too far to drive.  I still am deciding if I want to invest 1000 bucks on new wheels.  I can get a set of American Racing classics chrome mounted, balanced and front end alignment, center piece, and lug nuts for 1000, which is a good price? I know as soon as I drop the money something will most likely go wrong with the car. Love the damn thing but she likes attention just like all women, but she is worth it.  Take care and drive safe.

ARE wheels are available in a wide variety of styles and sizes.   They are a high quality wheel.   And yes, your original factory wheels can be chrome plated.   They can also be polished to return them to a better-than-new look!   If you decide to plate your original wheels, be sure to get a triple plate (copper-nickel-chrome) for durability!

These are not American Racing wheels, but, look nice with black and compliment the body lines of a C4.

They did compliment the car IMO.
I wasn't wild about the looks of the factory rims on any C4, except maybe
Z or GS A-molds...<-------those sets aren't too bad.

18's
Running 235/35ZR Falkens.
Lack of sidewall isn't my style like whats pictured, but they came on the rims.
 when I burn off these I'll go with more sidewall.
