Unhappy Car is finally painted but i need to find wheels

After 2 1/2 yrs at the body shop waiting for paint, my 69 camaro is finally finished. I had my wheels picked out, but when i went to order them last week, they are now discontinued. www.groupawheels.com/snyper.html They are still on the website, but they are no longer making them I was told. This is the type of wheel I'm looking for but I'm having a hard to impossible time locating an equivalent. I'm looking for 17 x 8 x 4.75bs fronts and 17 x 9 or 9.5 x 5.5bs rear. I found two wheels that are similar at www.hvydeez.com, the 5 star in the endless series and the gt sport in the exposed series, but i cannot get this place to answer the phone or respond to emails. Any help on finding some wheels for the ride would be greatly appreciated.
thanks,
bl

For those wheels you mentioned, check here: http://www.introwheels.com/

Both look very nice to me, especially the "exposed" GT-Sport

Re: Car is finally painted but i need to find wheels






hopefully i did these pictures right...
I like the gt sport, but they are quite pricey and don't show a 9" or 9.5" available for my rear wheels...
I like the 5 star and the price is right, the center cap is the only thing i'm not particulary fond of. Let me ask one more thing... from all that i've read... is this accurate...
i've got 4 wheel disc brakes...
17 x 8 x 4.75bs, and 17 x 9.5 x 5.5bs.
no fender lip roll
thanks

Re: Car is finally painted but i need to find wheels

My vote is for the Sport GT's. Of course I might be biased since I have them on my 67!

67 Camaro- 427BB, TKO 600, 3.55 12 bolt etc.etc.

Re: Car is finally painted but i need to find wheels

thanks ... its been a long road to paint. I'm going to the body shop today for the last time hopefully, put my wheelwells in and bring her home. I'll post some good pics as soon as i get her together again. Oh yeah... the guy in the picture is my painter, who does amazing work, just don't get in any hurry to get it done cause he does the old car stuff on his spare time... and he's got 3 kids, high school age and younger, so we know he's got tons of time....

This wheel looks pretty close to your first pick.http://www.fikse.com/profil5.html
I believe they are a little pricey. But on your car with that color combo.

I like the Budnik Ice wheels. I just seen them on a car with a similar color paint job. All I can say is WOW.

Re: Car is finally painted but i need to find wheels

The intro GT sport, Boyd "rebel", and many others look very similiar. Good, strong five spokes are easier to find, let me know if I can help anymore. I sent you a PM.
