Default Another Newb with a question

Just got my 92 yesterday. She is in excellent shape with the exception of the aftermarket rims. They arnt dinged but the coating has came off in some places. Can anyone tell me what size you would suggest I change to and what other cars rims will fit. Also I saw in one of the threads someone had repainted and then used poly on them. Will that work?
Thanks in advance

anything 4x100 or 54 hub or bigger would work. I would shoot for oem wheels. You need something light under 15 pounds. Try plasti-dip, you can always remove it anything.

Check at Good-Win Racing and 949Racing for some good lightweight wheel choices in the proper fitment and at a good price.

Default stay with

15 inch wheels or 14's
the 16's and 17's create a lot of drag and you feel every little pebble
