What is the difference between the 3? I’ve looked at some of these but don’t see anything about compatibility/ interchangeability.

Thank you for your help.

The first two were possibilities and are very similar (may even be the same, I'm not sure). The last one is listed specifically for your year, on a car equipped with A/C.

Tried the chrome wheels. Rears look ok, fronts, not really. Maybe when I lower it. Fronts are 9” wide, rears are 10” wide. 1.5” spacers on front and rear. Do not hit with the spacers anywhere.

Put the 10” wide in the front with 1.5” spacers and they did not hit anywhere. I like the deep look better.

Took interior rear panels off and panting with duplicolor vinyl/fabric paint. Cleans up good.

Did you repair your existing dash pad, or did you find one in good shape somewhere?

Wait... you holding out on us? Is that a blue IROC and a white Z-car in the pics with the King?

More pics of those please!

Other projects. 1990 Iroc, LS1/T56. Runs excellent. Have a few more details to workout but close. Good runner.
