    here you go I found these .. they are a sort of Iroc rim.. but in 20's... im sure if you got them in 17 or 18's under the roc it would look sick

    shit man you could eaasily get them powdercoated accents... lines kind of like your factory ones you have now have.. or like the 88 and 89 Irocs have where the indented slits are colored and the inner lip and the rest is chrome

    like this.. excuse the pic I found it on the net but it shows the rim well ...

    on a third gen car, a 17 x 9 wheel with 5.25" backspacing is what fits without interference. if the wheel has 5.5" backspacing, then you'll need to grind a little off the tie rod to clear the wheel. i think it was car craft that did an article on fitting wheels on a thirdgen. this was with 275/40-17 tires.

    you could do 9.5" wide with a 5.25" backspacing all the way around with a 255/40-17 so as not to rub the inner fenderwell in the front.

    one of the other mags did a 17 x 9 with 5.25" backspacing with 275/40-17 all the way around. SLP even came back with their 3rd gen wheels for a short time a couple years ago.

    9" fit well on a 3rd gen.
    here are some pix of 3rd gen w/ 4th gen wheels but had adapters to have the wheel stick out a bit more.
