As luck would have it, I am buying new tires , only to find, the rear rims bent.
Had one straightened and refinished, but the other is pooched, so I am looking for one Right side, 1991 "Sawblade" 17x9.5 Rim. It has to be from 1991 because the rim is painted with a machined edge, later rims were machine faced.

Thanks
 
Thanks Riley, however I found Midwest Wheel and Tire, in Michigan
has them, and a slew of other wheels. Its strange that the big suppliers
(Ecklers, Mid America etc.) don't supply the sawblades painted , only chromed.
Midwest has painted and machine finish, so if anyone else is looking, just google
them.

And just so ya know: 3 rims ,straightened and refinished by Carcones,
423.75 w HST, plus 1 replaced rim from Midwest 314.99 (incl rim +shipping + broker fees + HST) total for all 738.74. Still less than new rims and I could add another 120 for 4 new centers w/emblems, but I'm not rich so I repainted
them and the lug nut covers for 20.00. Now I can go buy rubber.

Not complaining, just letting ya know, after all, spending on your Corvette
is simply a must do thing.
