Correct SS Wheels for 69'???

Hey guys,
I'm going to be buying a 69 SS (X22) car in the next week or so. It's in decent shape but needs some things which include a set of wheels. I am looking for a good place to buy a complete set of SS wheels w/ rings & caps...Any suggenstions. Also, does anyone know what size the 69' SS Camaros came with? In your opinion were the large enough or pizza cutters? Finally, anyone w/ a car that has SS wheels & could post or send me a pic and give me the sizes, I'd appreciate it! I know these are going to be expensive so I want to make sure I get the size that looks best.
Regards,
Mark

standard wheels were 14x7 steel wheels (XT $$$$), optionals wheels were Rally 14x7 (YJ $$) and 5 spoke 14x7 (AO $$$). Pizza cutters???

I'm going to be buying the 5 spoke style. Any good sources for these? Were these 14 x 7 all the way around? Do they make these a little wider maybe 14 x 8 for the rear? Pizza cutters is just a figure of speach i.e. skinny tires. BTW, the car I'll be purchasing is Burgandy as well

Originals are hard to find in really good condition. troll Ebay, swap meets etc. They make repros of them, but I do not know how good they are. Repros look like they come in 14x7 or 15x7. 7 inch on a 69 rears really fill the well up anyway. Mine wont be burgundy for long!

AO wheels have not been documented to have been installed on Camaros. They are Chevelle wheels.

IF coded wheels are just like the XT steel wheels 14 x7 and also have been documented on 1969 Camaros.
