I believe you first have to decide if you want to stay OEM or go after market where you have thousands of choices.   Does make it difficult, stay classic or go spicy?

For instance the 1990 “salad shooters” are unique. The ZR-1’s rear 17X11 were only available in 1990. Extremely hard to find and I think they are a work of art and a masterpiece. All four corners fit there and that’s it.

Sorry I didn’t send a picture. This is my ‘90 convertible with C5 Z06 wheels. When I bought it had these on plus I got the original ones. I like these better.

On my 1985 LT1 I am running 18x9.5 +22 forged Breyton wheels with 255/40-18 tires. The complete package was only $1100, wheels $500 on FB Marketplace and $600 for the tires. With the upgraded Z51 parts and polyurethane bushings the car handles great now.
