i have a 1985 two tone bronze coupe vette and z51 wheels.
One of the wheels is chuncked and will not hold air.
I would like to know if there is anyone i can find one from or
if i have to buy a new set of wheels which would be recomended.
You can pick up a Z51 rim on Ebay prob fairly easy. Be sure to know which tire its is thought from the seller. 8.5 in the front and 9.5 in the rear I believe. I'd just go ahead and get a whole set. If you want you could find a whole decent set on Ebay and send them to Ecklers for the chrome exchange. You'd recieve a nice chrome set then. :thumbsup:
What I have are factory 1984-1985 Z51 option 16x9.5" rims. I do not have what you have pictured in the original post, which are some type of aftermarket rims.
Here is a picture of the type that I have....
PM me an email address if you want pics of the actual right side Z51 16x9.5" rim that I can sell you.
Which wheels do you plan on replacing them with? In my opinion, the only aftermarket wheels that look "right" on an 80's c4 are either the Gotti or BBS style rims. The rims you have are very rare American Racing replicas. I was actually going looking to get a set just like yours on ebay but I was outbid. Luckily, I was able to get an authentic set of Gotti's locally although they need refinishing. I plan on having them plated to look like the ones in this forum:
or possibly like this depending on what color I decide to repaint my car:
