Do you want to continue with a similiar look (black center section), or chrome, silver ?
If your wanting black centers a set of TTM's with blk centers in 17 x 9 (275/40/17)front and 17 x 10.5(315/35/17) rear shoud fit perfectly fine.

I was running a 275/35/18 Nitto, hated them. Now I'm running 285/40/18 BFG g-force KDW, soooo much meatier and so much better, they hook a hell of a lot better too. Didn't have to alter my fender wells any, although they just do fit under there.

I'm running 295/35/18 out back. Looks pretty good to me. Here's a link with some wheel info on it.
Hope it helps.

I would like a set of my original wheels,but they are hard to find.I have suggested to my wife(t/a is her's) a set of black zr1/98 camaro ss wheels because of the simular 5 spoke design but she said no,the only wheels she liked were a set of black c6 wheels,which are 18s

i went w/ C6 18x10.5 and put some 315s on them.
For the rear, a 1/4" makes it perfect, making as if the wheel was a +50mm offset.
In the front, I have no spacer, but that's because the Porsche brakes offsets the wheel outwards more... but w/ stock brakes, if you decide to do the same on the front, get 1/4" spacer too... making it equivalent to a +50mm offset.
