    lol, i'm on the SAME boat man. I've been checkin out pretty much every website online. The best ive found and the best reviews is www.tomzwheels.com . I've e-mailed them, they are VERY nice people, in fact im going to be ordering his C5 replicas for my 99TA. Don't worry about specifying ur offset or spacing, they know as long as u tell them the kind of car.

    lemmi know how u make out, J

    I figured that...I'm going to the Super Chevy Show in Memphis this weekend, & hope to score something there. The factory chrome wheels are starting to pit so bad, I need to air the RF tire up once a week or so. Pisses me off that was a $900 option, that I really took care of, and now they are junk.

    Looks like a decent site, I want a set of TT2, I have a '67 Impala with a set of original. old school 15" torque-thrusts now, & just bought a set of 18" TT2 for my 2005 Silverado lowrider..well, 2/4 low anyway!
