Help with 4 Lug Wheels

I need some help...I have a 1990 LX 5.0 and it has some fake 17" Cobras on it. They are peeling and I want to put some different 17" wheels. Any suggestions on what to use or where to find a good deal?? Thanks!!

Have them blasted and powder coated, probably end up cheaper than buying new wheels. Unless you just don't like the way they look.

I thought about doing that but the only color I think that would look good is black and I'm not a fan of black on black...any ideas other than black???

Aluminum or anodized silver would probably look good. Maybe have them dipped as black chrome, that would be interesting to see on your car.

I believe I saw a Black Chrome paint on the Dupli-Color website, but you would need to remove the chrome that is on them and polish them up for it to look right. They have many other options and colors available too.

Sweet...I'll check on that. I'm sure we could sand these down so they would look ok.
